Sweet Valentine's Box

I LOVE the box cuts especially on the new Spring Holiday Cards cartridge. I decided to make my daughter one of these sweet boxes for Valentine's, so I kept it simple as she is only two and let's face it, the box doesn't stand much of a chance! I chose what is "suppose" to be an Easter cut, but with love in it I thought is was perfect for Valentine's too. Here's how I made it:

*Using a 12x12 mat and the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge, cut the box with the fit to page feature on.

*Cut the some bunny loves you at 5"

**TIP: Adhere the decortive panel, in this case the some bunny loves you cut out, BEFORE you adhere the box together. Also do any stamping or doodling before putting the box together.

*Use embrodiery floss to give the bunny a bow.

*Stamp around the some bunny loves you frame.

*Shade bunny with Copic markers to give some depth.

*Using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge cut Flower 28 at 2", 1 1/2" and 1". Curl petals and adhere together.

*Cut leaf 2 at 1 1/4", emboss flowers and leaves with Swiss dots embossing folder using your Cuttlebug. Swipe with ink.

*Adhere box together and add dots of Fruit Punch Stickles to the stamped flowers.

Give to two year old to destroy, I mean, have fun with:)
