Valentine Treat Box √

Julie has been a busy bee coming up with fun ideas for Valentine's Day treats!  This treat box was inspired by a die cut that Julie had seen in a scrapbook store.


Julie used one of the hearts from our new Valentine Collage Sheets for the top and traced the hex opening from one of the templates (see below) to create the closure.  1/8" O'so Sticky tape was fit around the edge and gold beads used to border the heart.   3/8" O'so Sticky tape was used to cover each of the little petal tabs that fold through the hex opening and they too were covered with gold beads.

My Brian is always happy to help out with templates - it helps him justify the expense of updating is CAD program every year! Ü  Today he whipped this one up just for you! 

NEW AND EXCITING!!  There is also an SVG cut file for those using a Cricut with a computer software program.  This is our first of MANY SVG’s to come, so stay tuned! 

You may want to print the PDF file as a folding guide when using the SVG cut file.

If you own the Sure Cuts Alot software you can also download the SCAL file!!

All the details and template downloads are available from this page of our website:

  1. So today I not only got to see a really awesome creation of Julie's but found out about new terms (SVG). I have to get a Cricut - in the interim will work on trying to do Julie justice. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Absolutely beautiful! Very creative! You out did yourself Julie!

    Thank you Brian for all your work on the templets! Your work is very much appreciated!

  3. Brian thanks for helping us beadie buds out with great templates that are easy to understand. Julie great job on the heart with the gold edging. Darlene

  4. I am glad you like the templates. We have a huge library of them that I've drawn since we started in 2003. The plan is to update, improve, and simplify many of these as time allows. We are really excited about the endless design possibilities that the Cricut cutting system with the SureCutsAlot software opens up. Many designs have been shelved or abandoned because they are simply too complex to cut out by hand. All that has changed. More SVG and SCAL files are coming!

  5. Congratulations Darlene! You win!!
