Valentine Candy Box + Cameo Card

Hi, Everyone!

In this afternoon's USTREAM show, we made this candy box:

The box has a cute little drawer that opens to hold 20 Hershey's Kisses or a standard size card (or both!):

The USTREAM was recorded, so you can check it out here if you'd like to see how it is made: Valentine Candy Box.

Unfortunately, I was really tired when I wrote my notes for the dimensions down & so I gave several different sets throughout the show. Below, please find the complete dimensions for the box:

7" x 8" piece of cardstock, scored 1 1/4" from the edge on all four sides

Box Bottom:
5 3/4" x 8 1/4" piece of cardstock, scored 1 3/8" from edge on both short sides & one long side

Box Top:
5 7/8" x 8 3/8" cardstock, scored 1 3/8" from the edge on both short & one long side

  4. Kathryn I just love your projects, they are always fresh and beautiful and the goodie drawers and boxes you do are so cute. You inspire me to create and try new tools and punches, I'm so glad to be part of the online family of scrappers that watch your live and also your recorded shows. Thanks for taking the extra step of posting the measurements even though you just finish a show and were tired. I appreciate all you do for us. (Evethmoon)

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment, Wanda! I so love crafting with all of you & I'm so happy to have inspired you to use your products and tool in new ways & to just have fun creating!

  5. I love these heart braking boxes. They remind me of something I saw a few years ago in a Better environment and Garden Holiday Crafts magazine. The London Fancy Box
