Valentines gift box

I made this gift box using one of Stampiin'Up's mini pizza boxes. They have been designed so they are food safe and are the right size to hold a cookie. I made this box by cutting a bold shape out of the lid before assembly using a heart shaped die which is from the main catalogue dies called Be Mine framelit dies. (they were last years spring/summer mini catalogue. I kept them because I like the folk heart shape and there are tonnes of other dies in the set that co-ordinates with the Meant to Be stamp set. I'm glad I held on to it because I like it much more than this years heart shapes in the catalogue. It is still available on my shop and I have put some images below of the details of the sets designed to co=ordinate together.

 To get the label the same colour as the box I stamped and cut the other pieces from the die off-cut.
 The pizza boxes are also available and are flat packed but ready to make up and don't need any glue unless you want to seal them.
After cutting the shape from the top - and different shapes could be used for different occasions e.g. a star, a leaf , a flower or more intricate shapes that don't allow the middles to drop out!
Cut a piece of card to go behind you cut out and mount it under the box lid using dimensionals (foam fixers) this gives that lovely sunk in lid look.

The insert is 3.25 inches square and in real red card.




The rose die in this set was what was used on the piano card from yesterday.
I really like the sentiments in this set.

p.s. I have eaten the chocolates already they were from Marks and Spencers and very nice !!
