Valentine Boxes

With Valentines day and all the odd shaped treats and gifts many times I find myself without a box. It's so easy to make your own!

This was a piece of cardstock cut to 7 x 9 " then scored and folded @ 5 and 7" for the bottom and another piece the same for the top. The cardstock was so much fun, an entire sheet of separate Valentines.
I cut a piece with 4 and adhered it and the ribbon to the boxtop.
The box below was cut from a template found online for a 2 x 2" box perfect for holding money or a few chocolate kisses.

I used a scrap for the band around the box and a heart brad and 2 shades of pink for a flower. The photos aren't great but you get the idea. These little boxes are economical to make, and adorable to add to a holiday tree! You could stamp on the stock, glimmer mist, glitter or many other things. Photos aren't great but you can get the idea.
