Happy Valentine's Day!



Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Take time today to remember all those people in your life you love. :-)

Here's another Valentine's projects we made at my Valentine's Bundle class. I'm not sure who first came up with the idea for these CUTE scallop note boxes, but they are fun and resonably simple to make. You start by using the Big Shot with the Scallop Envelope Die to cut out 4 scallop envelopes which you then make into a box. I added a picture tutorial here. . . . if you have questions about any of the steps, please don't hesitate to ask! 



Trim one of the side tabs off of each envelope, add 2" by 3" pieces of Designer Paper and then use a strong adhesive (Sticky Strip or Tombow) to adhere the box together.


I used a 3" by 3" square of light cardboard (the kind that comes in the packs of 12x12 paper) to give stability to the bottom of the box.

Thread and tie the ribbon and add a bag of goodies! I used the Stampin' Up! large cello bags.


Here's a close up of the tag. The white is embossed, and the heart is then cut out. I used a loop of ribbon attached to the back of the tag so that it could slide off and on the bag--without needing to re-tie a bow. :-)

Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Candy Lane DP
Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop Envelope Die, White Stampin Emboss powder, heat tool, 1/8" Circle Punch, 1/4" Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, 5/8" Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon, Filigree Designer Brad, pink circle rhinestone brad, large cello bag
