Bear Hugs are Best!

Happy Friday!!!

Hi! It's Ruthie again! I can't believe we are only a week from Valentine's Day! Whew! 
I have a fun Valentine's themed treat box to share with you today.
The Timeless Twine Store has these sweet little kraft boxes for sale. I took one and misted it with some Color shine to add some color. It's really sparkley and glittery... you just can't see it very well in the photo. Then I took the medium heart die from My Creative Time's Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO Dies and cut a heart window in the front panel of the box. I love these new dies! Love that they have stitching on the positive and negative edges, so that you can make windows with them and still get stitching around the edge of the cut. Once I had my window cut, I placed a small piece of clear acetate on the inside to serve as a window so that the bears wouldn't fall out. Lastly, I put my box together, filled it with teddy grahams, and decorated the top with some twine, a twine pompom, and a tag.
Box: Timeless Twine Store, Kraft Pinstriped Boxes
Sweet Cherry Color Shine: Michael's
Paper: Recollections & Core'Dinations
My Creative Time Products:
Metal Adaptor Plate
Snips (wire cutters)
Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO Dies
Square Stitched Goody Dies
Beary Special Thoughts Stamp Set

I used Timeless Twine's, Aqua Blue twine. You can find it, a ton of other colors, and lots of fun packaging in the Bella Creationz store.
 I hope you have a wonderful day!
