Heartfelt Reeses Cup Flip Top Box Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my second blog post for today; I wanted to take a little time and share with you the project that I made last night during my weekly Facebook Live.  Each Wednesday at 8 pm CST I do a Facebook Live on my business page showcasing a different project.  This week I wanted to share a project using the From My Heart Suite.  Roses are red, violets are blue; this product suite was designed just for you! Celebrate your sweetheart with the From My Heart Suite Bundle. With bursts of hearts, traditional Valentine’s Day colors, and pops of pretty foil, your handmade creations will speak from the heart this Valentine’s Day. The heart craft punches perfectly align with some of the images on the Designer Series Paper and stamps. Use the ribbon, gems, doilies, and tins to create to your heart’s content!  This suite of products goes live tomorrow with all the other great wonderful products in the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

This was a extremely easy box to put together once I figured the measurements.  The trick to figuring out what size you need is to measure the items that you are going to put in it.  I always measure height, width, and depth.  Then at that point it's pretty easy to figure out.  For my box I needed a 5 1/4 x 8 1/4" piece of cardstock.  
I designed my project to hold two regular size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  They are stacked up on top of each other.  I started out on the 8 1/4" side of  the cardstock and scored at 1 1/4, 3 1/2, 4 3/4, & 7.  On the short side you score at 1 1/4 & 4".  Once I had all the scoring done it was time to do a little folding and burnishing.  Once I had the cardstock cut as shown in the video, I added my designer series paper first.  I used a little of the From my Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  
The playful heart patterns in the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper have red and pink foil accents on some designs. Some images from the paper can be cut out using the Heart Punch Pack. This paper is excellent for valentines, cards, and scrapbook pages.  After adding the paper I stamped the Happy Valentine's Heart from the Heartfelt Stamp Set and punched it out with the matching punch.  I also punched out a scalloped heart using the other punch.  I layered both hearts together and added a dimensional at the top of the heart and the bottom.  This way once added to the top of the box the ribbon was still free to slide and tie easily.
