For this project, you will need:
- one 12" x 12" piece of card stock
- one 4 1/2" x 8" piece of card stock
- two 3"x 3" pieces of card stock
- paper snips
- sanding tool
- corner rounder
- craft knife
- additional embellishments (ribbon, flowers, heart dies/punches, stickers, card stock)
To begin, place your 12" by 12" piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal. Score at 3", 6" and 9".
Scor-Mat into your Scor-Pal. With a ruler and a craft knife, cut at the 1 1/4" mark from 3" down to 9". Cut on the 1 3/4" mark from 3" down to 9". Finish cutting the slot by cutting between 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" at each end.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the bottom of the box, front of the box and box lid as shown below.Scor-Tape and create the box by folding tabs together. Adhere the 4 1/2" by 8" piece of card stock to the box lid. Trim out the card slot again, following your first cuts. I rounded the corners and sanded the edges to ensure a good fit.
Now you can decorate your box. I finished each end with 3" by 3" pieces of red glitter card stock. Then I added my daughter's name in red glitter stickers flanked by a couple of asterisks and fun foam hearts.
For the top of the box, I created a larger heart embellishment. I die cut two hearts, one from red glitter paper and another from vellum. I used a small strip of Scor-Tape to keep the vellum attached to the glitter paper. For the tiny bouquet, I twisted three small stems together and then lined the back of the stems with 1/8" Scor-Tape. I wrapped my organdy ribbon around it and tied it in a bow. I lined the back of the bouquet again with Scor-Tape and stuck it down on the hearts. Finally, I punched three small hearts from the Core'dinations card stock, sanded them and adhered them down.
This concludes my Valentine's Collection Box tutorial. Thanks for following along. If you give this a try, be sure to link me up in the comments so that I can see your creation.
*I want to credit Karla Der for the original idea.
