The first one is a "milk carton" box, that I stamped on, and added ribbons to. Fill these with treats, and you have cute, homemade Valentines.
Super easy! And you can do any color, for any reason!
The next one is a little purse card, that I actually made for my mom's birthday, but I thought it would be cute for Valentine's Day, too.
perfect size for a pack of gum or a flat candy bar. (Long ones like Snickers don't fit - bummer!)
Then it folds down, so you can write a little message inside.
These are actually pretty easy to make, just hard to describe.
Download the template, cut out your purse color (mine was brown) and score it where the lines are. I would have just listed the measurements, but they were really odd, so I just traced where I folded.
Fold it into a box, and you will probably see how it will come together. There will be a complete box, and then an extra flap - that flap will point up. (you fold it down to see the inside of the "card".)
Cut out a circle in patterned paper the same width as the purse, and glue it to where your top will be, then glue the back of the circle down as well. (Try out your circle before you glue to make sure it fits.)
Attach a little strip of ribbon with brads for the handle. Cut a little square of paper for the message and glue it on the front. Fold the flap up and attach magnet pieces.
Slide your candy inside - and there you go!
Like I said - hard to describe. Anyway, if you want, you can download my horrible hand-made templates here.
Thanks for stopping by!
