Valentine's Candy Boxes

Here is a super simple treat box.  It is used with the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cartridge. It is the "heart box."  I used DCWV Valentine's Day paper.  I cut a small square of clear acetate plastic for the window (which I got at Michaels).  I believe it's by Graphic X.  I then filled it with M and M's (plain and peanut!).  

I only have a Cricut Create (rather than an Expression) so I made the box as large as I could on my mat.  (I used my Gypsy to plan the size on the mat).  The box surface is about 1 3/4" x 1 3/4"
The flower was just used for the photo. I ripped that off a gift bag someone gave me.

Holly: yes, I sent my friend the card. She LOL'd.  She was so surprised to get it and yet, she was amazed at how perfect Marlene's image was!!!  Needless to say, she loved the card, despite my odd reptilian skin color.  C'mon, don't you think my skin looks the underbelly of croc?
Marlene: yes, I still have the dress.  AND I plan to model it and post the photo so all you 5 Readers can view it... in all its glory. 
Perhaps the skin coloring is accurate.  I tend to have a yellowish hue in the winter months...  a shade my dermotologist prefers as opposed to my normal 'sun-worshipping-sans-sunscreen-toasted-whole-wheat-english-muffin' look.


  1. Oooh...those little treat boxes are so CUTE!!! What a terrific job you did on those!

    Heehee...laughing my arse off at your "underbelly of croc" comment!!!

  2. oh your boxes are just adorable and who wouldn't love to get some valentine colored m and m's? thanks for answering my question about "the dress". I don't think the skin in your coloring looks reptilian at all, of course I haven't seen you in real life...
