A Shutt-erfly Valentine

Happy Saturday friends! Sorry I forgot to post this last night. I had some of my son's football friends over for a sleep over and things were a little crazy over here! They are really good boys but you can imagine how loud it can get when they are all having fun!

Anyhow, on to today's project.

I just love the template "shutt-erfly" from Lauren Meaders new store called My Time Made Easy. I used kraft card stock from Papertrey Ink to make the box. I just love how sturdy that card stock is. I wanted the red and black to really stand out so I left the decorating to a minimum. Sometimes simple can be so beautiful.
The image is from The Greeting Farm. I used the body of Stella and the head of Ruby. I just love all the new stamps Marie has been coming out with. Make sure you stop by her store on February 15th as she will be releasing a brand new line of Sprouts called the Cheeky Cherry Collection. If you haven't seen these girls yet, go check them out on her blog. They are so dang cute!!!

I made my box a little different from the actual template. I made it so that the top was removable so that the recipient wouldn't have to rip the box open. This box is a pretty good size too, I filled this one with a whole bag of those Dove chocolate hearts and as you can see, it didn't reach the top. I could have easily added another half bag.

Thanks for stopping by!
