A Little Valentine for the Boss

Hi bloggers! Many of you know, I instruct paper crafting at Michaels where I live. So typically I find great deals and see new stuff when it comes in.

I found these really adorable (alterable) balsa wood boxes perfect for treats. I decided to kiss-up to the boss (ha, ha) by making her one adorned with patterned paper, embellishments and fill it with treats! I really like these little boxes, they’re easy to embellish and fun to make. They are a step up from paper boxes because they have a more solid feel to them.

Also, I used some fussy cut ephemera from K&Co.’s Valentine Themed paper called “Cupid’s Specialty Paper Pad” as well as a Spellbinder’s Die Cut.
