Hello Stampers, Bonjour!
Love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is not only an occasion for couples. It’s also a day to celebrate girlfriends, Happy Galentine’s Day…. From flowers, to chocolates or that romantic dinner you and your partner have been waiting for. There is a special way to show your love for “V” Day. We are keeping it low key this year. In the past, we’ve often escaped the Canadian Winters around this time of year and traveled to a hot sunny destination. I feel that our schedules are not aligning for a trip. I was too busy with my nursing job in January. February was out of question for me due to my scheduled surgery and post op recovery. “By the way, I went to my medical appointment yesterday, bandages are off. I still have stitches, steristrips and bruising. But the good news is that I will be able to take a quick shower.” Chris is not available to travel in March. So I don’t think we will be going out of country this year.
Although we are taking it easy in February. I still wanted to celebrate Valentine’s Day. What better way than create easy DIY treat boxes. You can add jewelry, chocolates or candy. The inside of the box is about the size of a match box. Stampin’up! truly facilitated this process by designing the Heart Boxes this year. These boxes are an add on option available to Paper Pumpkin Subscribers. I made my tags when I created the cards posted HERE. And I had some leftover. Why not use them for the boxes today.

As I was saying , the Heart boxes are a Add On option for paper pumpkin subscribers. I modified my add on and added love notes using the Alphabet A La Mode Dies and the Rectangle Stitched Dies. These were simple to create.
Simple Steps to create the Heart Boxes:
- Assemble the Heart Boxes. One part is top and the other part is written bottom. There is a Reel on my Instagram account Kim_McGillis
- Die cut a rectangle from the Rectangle Stitched Dies in Basic White Cardstock
- Adhere adhesive sheet onto Petal pink Cardstock and die cut the word of your choice using the Alphabet A La Mode Dies “my Favorite”
- Remove the backing from the adhesive sheet letter you created and adhere to the rectangle die cut piece
- Use Dimensionals to add your love note to the heart box
- Embellish with ribbon or twine
Tip: Adding the Adhesive Sheet onto your piece of cardstock prior to die cutting, insures that small die cut pieces have adhesive on them. Therefore, no messy and sticky fingers, you don’t need to add multi purpose glue. Just peal and add to your crafting project. The is what I used to adhere the letters in these tags above.
