Easy Valentine Treat Boxes


Just a few days until Valentine's Day and if you're looking for a quick and easy way to pass out sweets to your Sweeties, you can't go wrong with a PILLOW BOX.  I decorated these two boxes using scraps.  
The picture above was adorned with the inside of a scalloped frame cut, extra SVG cut flowers and a tag punched from scrap.  I save all my scraps, miss cuts and parts and pieces...they come in very handy for projects like these!
This box has a scrap piece of black cardstock wrapped around it and hearts punched from scrap.  I like to use double sided heavy weight DP to create these boxes.  I can cut two boxes out of one 12" x 12" piece with lots of scrap left over for other projects.  Using the SVG file and my electronic cutter, these make up quick and easy!
