Lots to Love Box Tutorial

It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day will soon be here (wasn't it just Christmas?). So it's time to start planning special treats for the ones you love. Today's project is perfect for tucking in gift cards, jewellery, chocolate, etc.


  • Melon Mambo: Box Base: 6 3/4" x 8 1/2"
  • Gold Foil: 2 3/4" x 4 3/4"
  • Designer Series Paper: 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • Whisper White: 2" x 3"


  1. Cut 2 Box Framelits Dies from Melon Mambo. Use Bone Folder to fold on score lines. On inside of one box add 4 3/4" of Tear & Tape against the score line on the long side of the box.
  2. Stamp 'You're my Valentine...' using Versamark on Whisper White, emboss in gold and cut out with die.
  3. Adhere DSP of your choice to Gold Foil and add embossed heart. This is the front of your box. On the inside of the box take off the paper from the Tear and Tape, turn the other box side upside down (so the folded openings are opposite each other) and adhere the box together.
  4. Cut 28" from both colors of the Love Mini Tinsel Trim, find the center and adhere to the bottom of the box. To adhere use 3 Mini Glue Dots in a row. Use the Paper Piercing Tool to lift & place the glue dots in a row.
  5. Lay the tinsel trim over the glue dots keeping them separate for best effect. Bring the trim up the sides of the box and repeat the mini glue dots on the sides at the top of each side to hold the trim. Fill box with a Valentine surprise and tie a tinsel bow at the top of your box.


Yesterday I sent out this month's newsletter, with a fun new colour combination challenge. This combo includes the bright party colours of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Tempting Turquoise. I love these colours together! If you need some inspiration when you're stamping, pull out this combo of inks and paper - I'm sure you're going to love the results!
