Valentines Box!

Here it is finally! My valentines box I created for my Cricut class next month. I had a lot of fun trying to figure out what to put on each side and how to make the top pretty since it had to be able to split in half. There are lots of pictures and details about creating it so have a look. Also Friday I will be announcing the big giveaway! Here's a hint..... the more people who join the bigger the prize! So make sure to tell all of your friends.

The box was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More on the 12x24 mat using the "fit to page" feature. After it was cut I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to ink the edges and give it a little more texture. The top is a heart from Love Struck that I glitzed up with some Stickles. It had to be cut in half and then adhered to each side of the box closure.
Side one was all cut from Sweethearts. First I cut the rose bouquet for the stems and wrapping. I cut off the roses and replaced them with individual flowers using Ranger's Dimensional Pearls for the centers and Glimmer Mist in pashmina for the sparkle.
Side 2 was cut from Love Struck. I used Glimmer Mist again and Stickles on the letters. I also used 3D Glue Dots to adhere it to the box and give it dimension.
Side 3 was a little different. The heart is from Sweethearts and the medallion piece is a 1.5" piece of patterned card stock folded every half inch and then glued together at the ends. (Sorry not the best explanation) The word love was a $1 stamp from Michael's that I heat embossed.
Side 4 was a combination of both cartridges. The hearts are from Sweethearts and the words are from Love Struck. I used Stickles on the blackout part of the hearts and Glossy Accents on the words.
