Handmade With Love Gable Boxes

I feel absolutely lousy today.  A bad cold/flu is going around work, and it looks like it's my turn to get it.  So, I'm hoping that sharing some Valentine cheer will help me feel better!

I made some gable boxes (during Christmas!) and I finally got around to decorate them last weekend.  The boxes, big roses, and the leaves were all cut with my Cricut.    I wanted to give my boxes a little "heft", so they could hold a heavier treat inside.  So, I actually cut 2 of each piece and adhered them together.  Then, I used two Papertrey Ink Stamp Sets,  Heart-2-Heart #11 and Fillable Frames #5 for my sentiment.  A few paper punch flowers and butterflies, some tiny clothes pins, baker's twine and most important, some pop up dots and my boxes are ready to be filled with something sweet!
