Here's some Valentine explosion boxes that I made for my kids. It'll be filled with candy and little items for them. I know they'd appreciate this more than the traditional Valentine card. The directions for these boxes are in the resources section under projects. I used the whimsy jumbo wheel and randomly stamped hearts for the box bottom. I embossed a Priceless flourish in white EP using a heatgun for the lid. Inside has "Happy Valentine's Day" stamped on the bottom. Stamped a tag and punched it out and tied it into the ribbon knot. I cut out and added a Priceless heart on the knot adhering it with a glue dot. I hope this sort-of counts for the Holiday Card challenge - if so, then it fulfills my January quota.... if you'd be interested in joining us with the goal to finish ALL holiday cards ON TIME this year, please visit this link -
TFL, everyone! I appreciate you taking a closer look at my project!
ETA - Here's the link to the tutorial. Also, I forgot to mention that my lids are scored at 3/4 of an inch, not 7/8 like in the tutorial - I may have made a mistake with the measurements of my box because my 1st lid didn't fit - anyhow, this works well enough for the kiddos! Thanks everyone!
Also included in my edit, I added that I had to score my lid at 3/4 of an inch, not 7/8 of an inch - my first lid didn't fit, so I had to adjust for my boxes (I probably didn't measure out my box bottoms right... it worked out well enough though -these were fun to make). Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!
