Can you believe it? Let's continue prepping for Valentine's. It's nice to be ahead of the game.
You will need the pizza box die- Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Box, Heart. I made a few of these boxes, so I am going to show you step by step using a few different boxes. Use a glue that is going to stick really quickly; such as glue gun, FabriTac, etc. The reason being is that when you curve around the heart shaped part, you need it to adhere without moving.
So here's a few tips I learned:
Tip #1: Make the lid as big as possible. That means glue it to the absolute edge.The lid is going to need to slide smoothly over top of the box part.
Tip #2: you can see how for the bottom box- I indented a pinch to make the box part smaller than the lid.
Here is how I put the glue on the bottom. I know you can barely see the glue, but it is there about 1/4" for sure in from the sides.
When you have the box totally assembled, you may have some weird crack lines. So I like to fill these in with Liquid Pearls or Stickles. It makes like a "weld".
I decorated this box with a ribbon. super simple. This die gives you the choice of 3 different bows. Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Bow-Tied another fave bow i LOVE to use is:Sizzix Bigz Die - French Bow
finish it off with a button in the centre. I adhered the bow down with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner. Works perfectly! I left the box like this-I didn't think it needed any more to complete it.
Thanks for looking! Now go fill it with chocolates or candy!
