Valentine Heart Box Tutorial

Hi everyone ! Did anyone miss my postings? Well, as I have promised, my Valentine projects are lined up now. My 12 Days of Christmas E-book was so successful that I decided to make 14 Days of Handmade Valentines gifts/projects. 

Here's my Day 1 of 14 Days of Handmade Valentines Gifts/Projects

I made this Heart Box using my Cricut Expression Cutter. It has been a long time since I played with my Cricut.  And I am so happy to be re-united with my toy again after 5 months! 

So, join me in refreshing myself with this Electronic Personal Cutter Machine. In this project I used the Tie the Knot Cricut Cartridge. You can use any cartridge that has heart shapes or, if you do not own a Cricut Machine, just print a heart template and make a heart shape cutouts. There are many heart shape templates online.  Just Google it. 

I am intending to give this box to a friend that has been very good to me while I was out of town. That's why I used the Thank You sentiment as my decoration on this box.
