Valentines Treat Holders

I already made a project for this weeks challenge which is Valentines for Kids, but this one fits the challenge also.   I made over 30 of these little boxes to hold the boxes of conversation hearts.  I stamped them with the Build a Valentine stamp set.  I also cut the hearts out with the Heart Border Metal Dies.

The scallop edge was done with the Fancy Edges Metal Dies.

I tied them shut with  Maraschino and Blossom twine.  All of the products are from My Craft Spot.

These are not a cut file…shocking I know.  I cut pieces of paper at:
for the base - 8.5 x 3.25  scored at 3  5/8 and 4.5 
use scallop die on short side
for the box part - paper 6 x 4.5 - scored at 3/4 and 1.5 on 3 sides
cut out pieces as shown in photos

Then just glue to the base and decorate.
