Lots to Love Valentine's Day Box

It's time to make Valentines! This fun box is from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and I love that it's big enough to hold a gift card -- and hold the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes also from the Occasions Catalog. There's a brand new video showing this bundled set of stamps and matching framelits in action at the end of this post -- so keep reading!


I die cut the heart window -- and then used our foil acetate to go inside. The paper accents are the gorgeous Painted with Love Specialty Designer Paper -- lots of foil accents. It reminds me of 1970s wallpaper -- and a little of the prints goes a long way. Here's the small note card I made to go inside. A gift card fits in the envelope as well or just tuck it in the box along with some chocolate of course!


And because the paper is nice and sturdy -- almost a card stock weight -- I made a set from the paper itself.


Stampin' Up! shared a new video today that solves the mystery of what the two little half-circle framelits in the set are for: they easily let you cut tabs in a panel to hold a gift card. Watch and see that idea. (I had thought it was just to cut the divot at the top of the box -- but I found it easiest to make that with a half-inch circle punch). I love that they make tabs for the gift card!
