So it is Valentine’s Day here tomorrow apparently.  We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in a big way in Australia.  You might give your “significant other” a little chocolate treat and I do give my 2 kiddies (well they are mostly adults now), a little chocolate treat.

I thought that this year I should do SOMETHING! I have had the Lots to Love Box Framelits for a couple of weeks and not used them.  I had this in mind for about that long too.  So I just managed to create it in time.

I call it a Flip Top Treat Box. I am sure you could use the idea for a Gift Card not just chocolates.

This is with the Flip Top open. Mmm! Chocolate Hearts!

It has a little card insert in it to add the Chocolates. I added a Glue Dot under each one to stick them them to the card. I added a loop of ribbon which was adhered to the end of the card and then I added a small red punched circle to cover it.


1. Cut 2 of the box shapes from the Lots To Love Box Framelits from your card.

On one piece which will be your top score it at half way along the long side of the box. This will be at 6cm (2 3/8″) which is from the scored line measurement not from the start of the curved edge.

2. Place adhesive on the underside along the long tabs ONLY to the half way point that will be adhered to the box.  You don’t want to adhere the whole section or it won’t open. I added the adhesive on the curved end half.

3. Adhere the top piece to the bottom piece of the die-cut box.  Your bottom piece will have the curved end to the opening end as shown in the photo below.

4. Decorate the box as you like.  I used the Party Pandas set.  The hearts were cut from the Lots of Love Box Framelits set. The sentiment was cut with the Layering Square Framelits.

So cute enough for Valentine’s do you think?  Maybe it is a little late now to whip some up but file it away for another special Occasion.

Below I have a collage image ready to PIN.

Have a great day,

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!  I hope you have had a lovely day.  We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in a big way here in Australia.  Maybe a gift or some chocolate for a loved one??? I had made up a little bag of chocolate treats for my family.  I have to say I was totally surprised to get a bunch of flowers from my husband this morning!!! 🙂

Today I had a workshop and I thought it would be nice to give the guests a little Valentine treat.  It was a last minute decision so it was nothing fancy.


The Whisper White heart is cut with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits.  I hadn’t realised until I was making these that they have tiny little hearts embossed on the heart. Maybe I have just been a bit blind!  I found these little chocolate hearts at the discount store which was perfect for them.  The ‘For You’ is from Itty Bitty Banners and I cut a red banner from the ‘Bitty Banners’ Framelits also.  I stuck these behind the chocolate heart and I had just enough of the retired red Grosgrain ribbon to add a loop on them.   I think the guests liked their little chocolate surprise today.

Off to bed for me now.  See you next time,




Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day.  I thought I would stop by and show you a quick Valentine’s Treat Holder.  You could use this for any special occasion with a Chocolate treat or Gift card perhaps.

The original design was from Angie from her 12 weeks of Halloween found here.  I think this is cute (if I can say that!).  The paper measures 25cmx14cm.  Score the long side at 12.5cm.  Fold your paper in half with the fold on the left hand side.  Add Sticky Strip to the bottom edge and right hand side and adhere together.  Too easy!! You can crimp the bottom if you like.  Of course, you can make this to any size for your treat or Gift Card.

I have used the set “You are Loved”.  It finally found ink this week after sitting on my shelf for a couple of months.  I inked the heart with Crumb Cake and sponged over with Chocolate Chip on parts of the image.  (It is a bit hard to see).  I went over the bird with the Real Red Marker. This was mounted on a Crumb Cake mat.   The paper is from the Brights Paper Stack.  The Crumb Cake strip was run through my crimper and I wrapped some Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon around the strip.  The sentiment is from “Teeny Tiny Sentiments” with a little heart punched out from the 2-step Owl Punch.  I punched a  half circle from the top of the holder with the 1 3/8″ circle punch to make it easier to pull the treat out!!

I hope you have a special day with the loved ones in your life.  🙂

See you again soon,
