I used several of Eileen’s dies to create these fun Valentine’s Day projects. I am thrilled with how they turned out – AND how easy they were to create. I’m a huge fan of projects that are quick and easy!
“I love you” Candy Box
For this “I love you” project I used the Scallop Box ScoreBoards Die. I glued my patterned paper directly to the mat board (except for the piece I was going to use for the flap) and then cut. For the flap, since I wanted it to be a different patterned than the rest, I cut it separately and then glued it on. By adding the paper to the mat board before you cut, you ensure that everything will fold properly and be lined up just as it should. To create the front label and “I love you” sentiment, I used the Lovely Labels Sizzlits Set and the Hearts & More Sizzlits Set. I used sticky back Velcro circles to make the closure for my box.
I created a window in the back of my candy box using Eileen’s Heart & Label Movers & Shapers die. I made sure to make the cut after the paper was on the mat board so everything would line up. I cut a piece of sheet protector and added it to the inside of the box before folding the box together.
I didn’t want to give gifts without a card so I made a simple little square card using some patterned paper and the Love Stamp die from the Hearts & More Sizzlits Set.
Love Gift Card Folder
For my last project, I used the Gift Card Folder. I added my paper just like I did with the candy box (patterned paper on the main body and then I added the piece for the fold over flap separately). I used the heart, key, and Love stamp from the Hearts & More Sizzlits set to decorate my gift card holder. I added the gift card to the inside using one Glue Dot and made the closure using another circle Velcro piece that I cut in half. I finished it off by adding a heart button in the center of the key.
I had such fun creating these projects. The possibilities on how you could decorate these cool ScoreBoards dies and what you could put in them are endless! Eileen is a genius!
