Valentine treat boxes

I had a blast this morning making these for my 2 granddaughters.  I made 2 red boxes and 1 pink box.  I will be filling them with Hershey Kisses.

I got the instructions here from Dawn.  Dawn has some awesome tutorials on her blog. 

I made mine a little bit bigger as illustrated by Melissa.

Here are the pics:





Materials used:  The pink ribbon is from my stash as well as the pink and red cardstock.  I used a corner punch and a Martha Stewart Eyelet Heart punch which I was lucky enough to get when Michael's had the MS punches marked down by 30%.  The red heart satin ribbon I bought at my LNS.  Both the LNS and Michael's are close to where I work so I shop on my lunch hour.

Here is a close up of that gorgeous MS punch:


I have a feeling I will be using this punch more often for anniversaries etc.
