A Sweetheart of a Gift!

How cute is this little gift box? I made these for my February Workshop ladies and they loved them! (Thanks to Tina Sutton for the cute idea!) Here are the directions, in case you want to make some of your own! So easy and so fun!

Here are the directions:

1. First, cover your box with a base piece of background and texture paper. I cut mine 4″ x 7″ for the sweetheart box and 3 1/2" x 7 3/4 for a 2oz box of Russell Stover chocolates.

2. Next, cut a coordinating piece of background and texture paper to 1″ x 7″. I used scalloped scissors to create a ruffled edge.

3. Then, cut a slit in front of the box. Wrap the ribbon around the box (between the box and b&t paper on the back and through the slit center in the front). This keeps the box from coming out when you pull it up.

4. Then, cut coordinating cardstock to decorate the front of the box. Stamp an image on the cardstock. Glue on the front of the box, being careful not to get adhesive on the ribbon. (Just add it to 3 sides of the cardstock, sides and bottom, leaving no adhesive in the middle or the top).

5. Last, carefully put the ribbon around the box and tie the box in between.

6. Give to a friend as a special gift. This little project is great for teacher gifts, too! And, best of all you can use this idea all year long!
7. Supplies: Topstitch Level 2 paper packet (X7120B-$12.95), A Love stamp set (A1103-$7.95), Chocolate grosgrain ribbon (Z1127-$7.95), Baby Pink stamp pad (Z2102-$5.25), Blush stamp pad (Z2106-$5.25) and Bitty Sparkles (Z1263-$2.95)
