Valentine Ideas - Day 4

Hello, and welcome to Day 4 in my series of Valentine Ideas!
Be sure to check out the past days, too! :)

Today's project is pretty much the same as one from last year, but I felt that I should share the idea again, just decorated differently! I have more readers than last year at this time, so maybe some of you haven't seen it! :)

Someone asked me for the dimensions awhile back, but I was so sad to tell her that I couldn't find the original! Seriously, couldn't find it - STILL can't. :(  However, I found another one decorated for a birthday, so I was able to at least take the outside dimensions & scoring from that.

Ready? OK

Here's a few more views:

Want to know what I did?
Okay, I'll tell ya - it's real simple! :)

3.25" x 8.5" pc. cardstock
Score at 1" and 5"
Fold on score lines.
Staple candy under bottom flap.
Decorate with ribbon to cover staple.
Decorate as desired, and slip top flap into botttom - voila! :)

FYI: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cardstock. The whisper White cardstock is embossed with our elegant lines embossing folder. I originally stamped the heart from "Filled With Love" onto the red cardstock & punched it out...but thought it looked too busy against the embossing, so I turned it over, and was much happier. :)

That's IT!!

Well, what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. This is so simple and so cute. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  2. Very cute. Love all the different candy holders. TFS

  3. I am so glad you posted this again. I made these last year for nieces and nephews and loved them. My little girlie wants to make them for her class this year (Yea!! for having a girlie in school cause my boys don't appreciate this kind of stuff).


Go ahead...make my day! :)
