Valentine Hearts Treat Boxes

My son's first preschool Valentine's Day party was today, and it was so cute!  I'd intended to make two treat bags for his teachers, but couldn't find my cello bags anywhere.  But sometimes misplaced craft supplies lead to something even better -- a reason to make my first 2-5-7-10 box!  Check out this tutorial from Split Coast Stampers.

 Project Details:
  • Box Base - 2-5-7-10 Box
  • Papers - Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - heart from Doodlecharms, page 26; heart border from Elegant Edges, page 26; tag from Lovely Floral
  • Embossing - heart with Cuttlebug's Arygle
  • Other - ribbon from stash; brad and flower petals by Recollections; inking with black Stampabilities ink pad

I filled each treat box with Hershey's chocolate hearts.  And I think both my son's teachers liked their gift, because here's their reactions:


I'm entering this project into the following challenge(s):
