Valentine Treat Boxes


I've made a whole basket of these Valentine square pillow boxes for hand-outs this year. Each one has 4 heart-shaped candies inside. I made them with assorted colors and the die-cut designer papers I scored at Tuesday Morning stores. The papers are already printed and the hearts are already cut out, so all I did was  trim each one to fit the SU! square pillow box diecuts, and add some SSS die-cut hearts in matching colors. The white hearts were done with a SU! heart punch, and a retired SU! sentiment stamp I found at a yard sale a long time ago. I added a metal heart-shaped brad to each one and tied them up with some ribbon from my stash.
I love making these pillow boxes and enjoy handing them out to friends even more. My husband (who does the banking) will be taking them to the good folks at the bank as well.

I'll be taking these over to the Snippets Playground #213 because I used snippets to make each one.

Thanks for checking in on this Friday, and I wish you all a great weekend ahead!

These are ADORABLE! That heart diecut paper is to "die" for, LOL! All your recipients will love them! Hope you have survived the snow...it's all wet and melty down here...but still pretty darn cold!!

I wish I worked at your bank. These are great little handouts. I love that SSS die cut heart. Your little heart brads are just as cute as can be. You know what I realized? I had a posting scheduled to post yesterday morning and it never did, so I finally published it this morning myself. There must really be something strange going on at Blogger. Enjoy your Friday.

These look amazing, Carol! What a clever way to use that open heart paper. I just found my pack yesterday! The heart die you used fits the box perfectly. Perfect treat box!
