Valentine Box Hybrid and Store Flat

Etc by Danyale has a new set of papers, elements and word strips released this week. They are called Love Out Loud.  The colors are so brilliant and yummy, THEY are a Valentine treat! 

Just look at those delicious papers!!  You can grab them over at The Lily Pad: Papers, Elements, Word Strips.

I created a box that can be used to give Valentine goodies. And the best part, it can be stored flat so I can use it again and again!

I used a file from the Silhouette Store by Lori Whitlock called Large Store Flat Box to create this. I used a 12x12 piece of red cardstock to cut the the base. Then I printed one 8.5x11 Premium Presentation Matte paper with the heart paper (ptrn9) from Live Out Load by Etc by Danyale and one 8.5x11 piece with half the heart paper (ptrn9) and half the diagonal stripe paper (ptrn5).

I then placed them individually on my Silhouette mat and cut the accent pieces for the box,

The edges of the cut pieces are inked up with VersaMagic Chalk Ink by Tsukineko in Turquoise Gem color.  Using liquid glue I adhered the accent pieces to the base.

To allow the box to be able to fold into a usable box, and then flat again for storage, you place a small amount of adhesive at just the triangular spots that match-up to the 2 long sides (they are noted in the cut file for you).

Once I folded it into a box, I tied some pretty May Arts ribbon around it. Now it's all dressed up and ready for presentation!
