Lorby's World - Valentine's Mailbox/Treat Box Blog Hop

Valentine's Day is just two weeks away and we wanted to see what kinds of mailboxes, boxes, and bags you make to give those special people in your lives. Join us for some amazing Valentine's inspiration in plenty of time for that special day and those special treats.

This hop has two hostesses today: Jearise from Lorby's World and Tee. Make sure you visit their blogs because they have some special treats of their own to give away. They'll tell you more on their blogs.

Now on with the inspiration...

Although my brand new "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2" Cricut Cartridge contains many boxes and even a mailbox to choose from, I love this little treat box.  There was a little learning curve when cutting and putting this box together but I love how it turned out.  (PS - the pictures don't do the matching base and almost perfectly coordinating paper justice.)
The cardstock is white core and took the Chocolate distress well.  The patterned paper is some retired B&T paper from Close To My Heart that I love.  The two sides work so well together that I cut a butterfly out and turned it to the "back" side to compliment the lighter distressing in the paper.

My favorite part of the box is still the "lock and heart" sides.  The keyhole is where the tabs from the top insert to close the box.

I think I may make a few more of these for the special Valentine's in my life!  Hope you like it.
 Thanks for stopping by and please continue on to Robin S.
