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 http://scrappymoms-stamps.blogspot.com/
 and the Creative Cutter Room Challenge http://www.creativecutter.org/



Recipie:
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!
