Sweetheart Box- XXOOOXOX

Everybody loves getting a box of sweethearts at Valentine's Day!  Why not make them extra special by adding some bling to them!  These Sweetheart boxes are so fun to make!  Use your imagination and have FUN, FUN, FUN!

Here are the directions:

1.  Cover your box with a base piece of  background and texture paper.  I cut mine 4" x 7".

2.  I cut a coordinating piece of background and texture paper to 1" x 7".  I used a punch to create an eyelet look. 

3.  Cut a slit in front of the box.  Wrap the ribbon around the box (between the box and b&t paper on the back and through the slit center in the front).  See photo.  This keeps the sweetheart box from coming out when you pull it up.

4.  Cut coordinating cardstock to decorate the front of the box.  Stamp your image on this cardstock.  Glue on the front of the box, being careful not to get adhesive on the ribbon.  I added it to 3 sides of the cardstock.  (sides and bottom- leaving no adhesive in the middle or the top).

5.  Carefully put the ribbon around the box and tie the box inbetween.  SO CUTE.
6.  Give to a friend with big hugs and kisses!
