Another teacher gift ~ Valentine Box

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE papercrafting?
I find all sorts of fun projects and then I just cant stand it, waiting for a time when I can sit down and get to work. I found this fun tutorial on Inking Idaho's blog and decided that it would make a great teacher gift so I got started. Here is the completed box, I had Kyle ask his teacher what her favorite candy was and he said Reese's cups so I made sure to include some of those.View with the lid on, I tied some pink ribbon around the outside to keep it closed (not in the picture)Everything out of the box Fun and easy cards to go inside, the "thanks" is popped upI love this card, one of my all time favorites :-)
Another view so you can see the "4", "flower", and "U" popped out. This was fun to do for the peppermint patties, I cut a 2" scalloped circle from Mini Monograms with my pattern paper and shadowed it with brown. Then I cut a 1" flower from the same cartridge, then I added a yellow brad and then with double stick tape, stuck it to the patty.
Instructions for this cute box are included on the tutorial found HERE.
