Valentine Box

For the love in your life, this Valentine box is beautiful and functional! Make sections between your goodies to maximize your space and keep things in place. 

The top opens like a cover to reveal a window that you can see the goodies through. The lid can be removed to get the goodies!

The hearts are from Hero Arts. The paper is red linen. The other paper is brown, patterened, and cream. Brown brads decorate the front as well as a large red ribbon. The edges of the cream and patterned paper are distressed in Tim Holtz distress ink (brown), and the brown layer under the hearts is distressed with scissors.

Lift the flap of the lid to see what’s inside! A transparency covers the opening to keep things from coming out.

The “I Love You!” stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly. The brown paper beneath the saying is distressed with scissors.

The box holds a box of Skittles, love lottery tickets, a movie gift card, decorations, and a spot for a coin to scratch the cards. Each section has dividers to keep things in place. Little boxes were created to elevate the heart decorations, the gift card and lottery tickets.

My husband gave me a great suggestion on how to improve this box. He kept trying to lift the brown part thinking there was a card on the top of the box. What a great idea! A card on top that decorates and holds the greeting! Why didn’t I think of that?

Here is the Valentine gift box next to a vase of flowers my sweetheart husband gave me. They look good together, just like us!

  2. Love the look and feel of this box. The flap with heart shaped sneak peek at the contents is simply adorable. Wish I had thought of that.
