With Valentine's day just around the corner, I've been hard at work making token gifts and cards for those I love. The week I've been working on boxes full of Sweethearts and gift cards for my son's teachers. And what better way to do it than with the Sweet Cakes line!
SUPPLY LIST: Sweet Cakes Fancy Frills, Sweets Paper, Berry Sweet Paper, Hugs&Kisses Paper, Babycakes Paper, Valentine Doodletwine assortment, Sweetheart Doodlepop, Thank You Doodles Sticker, Bubblegum Create-a-Card.
I started out by making the box with the Silhouette using two different Sweet Cakes patterns - a print for the top box and a more classic dot print for the actual box. I also lined the box with a stripe pattern for some contrast. Next I filled it up with packages of Sweethearts and a gift card from our local movie theater.
I used a piece of acetate for the window of the box and some jewels to decorate the white border. I made a 'garland' of hearts using twine and some punched out hearts. I think it adds a little whimsy and a cute decorative touch.
