I made 27+ of these "Boxed Sweetheart Slipcovers" for my niece's first grade classmates. Half were done in Real Red/Basic Black, the other half were done in Pink Passion/Pretty In Pink. Happy Hearts are cut out and mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals. White background hearts are stamped in White Craft pad. Hope the kids like them!

As requested, here are some more detailed instructions. I'll use the Real Red/Basic Black color scheme as the example in the instructions. Cut Real Red card stock 4" X 7", score at 2 1/2", 3/4", 2 1/2", 3/4", leaving an extra 1/2" for a flap to secure. Stamp Beyond Basics Hearts in White Craft ink randomly as background. Cut one square piece real red 1 1/2", one square piece Whisper White 1 5/8", and one squre piece Basic Black 1 3/4" X 2 1/2". This Basic Black piece gets torn on the bottom edge after mounting the white & red pieces to it. Stamp two Loving Hearts onto Whisper White ... cut out & adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals to the Real Red 1 1/2" square. Use the 1/4" circle punch at the center of the front & back for the ribbon to thread through easily. The ribbon loops around the Sweethearts box so that when you pull on the top of the bow, the box pulls out of the sleeve. Yes, very time consuming -- just like everything I do!
