Sweet, simple and special...a Heart Gift Box filled with a Valentine treats!  Hi - Jean Okimoto here - Valentine cards are already signed, sealed and on their way,  so let's make some pretty treat boxes today.

Cut pink, red and flamingo cardstock with the Heart Gift Box die.  It cuts, scores and adds a heart window in one quick step. 

Cut screenprinted papers - like these from Shizen Design and available at Impress - with the 1.5" Circle Basics die.  Round diecuts let you rotate the circle until you find the perfect combination of colors and patterns to fill the heart cutout.  Attach the circle behind the cutout.

Fold the box on the pre-scored lines and attach the side tabs.  Punch holes at the top, thread them with gold cord, and add the candy.  Tie a knot and curl the cord with a bone folder or the side of that green plastic burnishing tool.

Heart-shaped favor boxes aren't just for February 14th...they're great for engagement parties, showers, weddings, Mother's Day brunch, or just to remind someone how special they are.

Thanks for stopping by - have fun making these sweet and simple treat boxes!

See you again next week...or at the CAKES, CANDLES AND BIRTHDAY WISHES afternoon class at Impress on February 10th.
