Valentine Treat Holders: Chinese Takeout Box / Frybox

Hi, again!!! Yup, I'm back for my third, and final post of today!!! I spent most of the day making Valentine treat holders for my 3 kids and then for my son's class and finally, a couple more for his freinds! Whew! What a day!! But what else could I do??? It was snowing and very blustery outside.... perfect reason to stay in and craft the afternoon away!! Besides, I really wanted to post all my finished projects tonight, cause after tomorrow, I'm finished  with anything Valentine related!!!!  :-)   Yahoo!!!!

So, here is my last post of Valentine projects.......................

These Chinese Takeout boxes were created from a SVG file I purchased online and then cut out with my Cricut. They were a little tricky to get to stay together ( kept popping apart!!), so I glued them.

I experimented around with the size of the boxes so that the treats would fit easily inside! The flaps tuck neatly into each other for easy closure and access; perfect for little kids.

Aren't those little fryboxes so darn cute??? I just love 'em! Again, I played around with SCAL to get the right sizing . I think they would look fabulous embossed ( next time!!!!), but for now I kept things quick and easy!!! Instead of punching out the owl eyes, I used googly eyes ( I thought I had lost them and spent way too much time looking for them!!!), and a little glitter heart  on the DSP owl and that was about it! So simple .... that must be my favorite word these days!!!
So now I'm done with the hearts , and Val. DSP ..... time to move onto Spring projects!!! Who knows , it may actually stop snowing!!!

Until next time..... happy crafting!!!
