Valentine Goodie Box

I just realized that I didn't post my Valentine goodies I made for the Wellness Center.  I love making crafts for Valentine's Day, especially for my daughter to take to the hospital and the Center.  I urge everyone to look around in their local communities and see where they could brighten some one's day with a special thought for them.  It doesn't take much.  Just the fact that someone thought of them! Well, back to the goodie box.  I haven't made a 2,4,6,8 box in a long time, so this is what I ended up making.  There is a lot of tutorials out there, but it is pretty simple for those who haven't made any. Just cut your CS 5 1/2" by 8 1/4".  You will then be able to get two boxes out of one sheet of CS. Score it on the Portrait side at 2" and on the landscape at 2,4,6 and 8" - thus the name of the box.

Since I make so many, I cut them all out first, put on DSP on the front and back (3 1/4" x 1 3/4") and make some type of greeting.  For these I used a stamp from CardzTV and punch them out with a circle punch.  I do mine assembly style.  You can close them various ways, but when I'm making a lot I choose the easier way, which was bringing them together, punching a hole at the top and tying them together with some ribbon.

I used SU's Sending Love paper stack - I love this paper!  I think I have used half of the pack already!

Here is a picture of one tray of the goodie boxes.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend - getting ready for the Super Bowl.  Unfortunately, our team didn't make it but we'll celebrate anyway!

I submited this Goodie Box to CardzTV Anything Goes Designers Challenge #2.

Thanks for stopping by,

I always loved making 2-4-6 boxes. They're the basic idea for every bag or box I ever made. Just look how sweet and easy these are, but so darn cute! You got to use a lot of cute papers on these. That's the idea -- use 'em up!

Oh Nancy, these are lovely. Once again I've not ever made something like this so I will have to give it a try. Our team didn't make it to the Superbowl either (Packer fans here in WI) however I was rooting for the Falcons, and well that didn't work out either.. hmmm.. pattern of my life lately.. well at least the sun was shining today. I really wish I knew how to get involved in the community here like you do by you.. that's fantastic.
