Little Box of Neighborly Love


Happy Valentine's Day to All of My Virtual Neighbors!

This adorable little box idea is not original to me, I've seen it on Pinterest and a couple of other places. I also CASE'd the basics of the design (I don't know who and I can't find the post). But I just had to show you what I made and gave to several of my neighbors and friends to show a little love this Valentine's Day. 

And since it doesn't have a Valentine's sentiment on it, you could CASE (Copy And Share Everywhere) it for a fun treat just about any time of the year. The strawberry really makes me think of summer! 

This side view shows the box a little better.

The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch works really well to make a cute little box that holds 4 heart-shaped chocolates. I even added the strawberry stem outline stamp and punch from the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. 

Topping it off with about 16"-18" of Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon makes a special little gift. 

I started with a 2" x 8-1/2" strip of Bermuda Bay Cardstock, scored at 3-1/2" from each end and then punched each end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. 

I used the same Bermuda Bay Cardstock for the box part of my treat box. This piece is 2-1/8" x 5" and then scored at 3/8" from each side and scored at 1-1/2" from each end. Little notches as shown in the picture will help cut down on bulky corners when you adhere them. 

The gusset of your box should be 1-1/2". Use a really strong double stick tape like Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the box together.
