Valentine's Crayon Goodie Box

Happy Valentine's Day!
Here is a Crayon Goodie Box that I made for all of my nieces and nephews.  I am entering this in the Scrappy's Mom Challenge
 and the Creative Cutter Room Challenge

1. Using Tags Bags Boxes and More, cut the crayon box on page 129 using the widnow feature at 8-3/4".

2. The cricut cuts marks to show where to score. Using a bone folder and ruler or scor-pal, score all of the lines.
3. I save any and all clear plastic wrappers and that's what I use to cover my windows.  In this project, I used a wrapper from a pack of stickers that I bought a Michales on clearence.  Cut the plastic to fit the window a little big and glue to the inside (the side opposite of the score marks).
4. Fold all of your score lines using a bone folder for a nice crisp fold.
5. Using the Love Struck 2010 Cricut cartridge and some scraps of cardstock, cut the candy hearts out...some at 2-1/4" and some at 3".
6. Using a pink sharpie marker I added stitching around the front of the box for an added effect.
7. Next, using Stampin' Dimensionals from Stampin' Up and some regular adhesive, I glued the hearts to the Crayon Box.
8. Finally, using Scor Tape I glued the Crayon Box together (Be sure to use a strong adhesive to hold your box together).
9. Embellish and fill with your favorite goodies!

Hope you have a great day and get something special from your Valentine!
Thanks for stopping by!
