Valentine's Boxes

I thought I would give some instructions on the little boxes I made. It took me a couple tries to get the sizes all correct. I wanted the lid a TINY bit larger than the bottom, and I wanted the bottom box to show.

So first, the dimensions. The lid is 4 x 4. Score 3/4 inch on all four sides. The bottom is 4 3/8 x 4 3/8 and score 1 inch on all four sides.

After you score all the sides cut 2 slits on two sides along your score line and stop when you get to the inner square. I cut the two in the middle.
Then fold the sides up. Glue the sides together. I glued the small pieces on the inside of the box. Your box should look like this so far.

You'll repeat the same steps for the top and the bottom of the box.

The design on the top was from Stampin Up! It's the "Love you much" set. I actually stamped the image 3 times. Twice on white and once on pink. I used the scallop and circle punch from SU and hand cut the heart.
