Hello everyone - I am going to begin today's post with a confession: I TOTALLY scraplifted this idea from other papercrafters!! I did not have the original idea to create this great Keurig Valentine's Day gift packaging, but I thought it was very creative and I decided to have a go at making it my own.
I read on facebook that one of the other versions of this design was created with Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More's CAKE BOX. I pulled up TBBM in Craft Room and decided to use a modified version of the CHRISTMAS TREE BOX. In hind site I realized that I should have used CTMH's Artiste cartridge's Cake Box - it is triangle shaped with a pretty scallop edged lid. If the bottom were cut twice, one cut a bit smaller, it could server as an insert for the Keurig cups.
Now that I have shared what I "SHOULD" have done, I will tell you what I did. I used the Christmas Tree Box. I modified the end of the box to get rid of the tree trunk and make it so the box would close evenly across the end. I placed six 1.7 inch circles spaces evenly on the "top" of the box to cut out for the Keurig cups.
I copied the basic box, minus the circles, to another page in Craft Room and enlarged the cut a bit. I added a heart cut out from Craft Room Basic Shapes to the "top" of the box. I then cut out the lid with the heart opening.
On a third page in Craft Room I copied the heart opening, made it a tad smaller and added the scallop edged heart around the original heart - the create the heart frame for the lid.
I finished the sides of my box with pretty edge trims - lace from my fibers stash and pleated red ribbon trim from CTMH's Designer Ribbon Red Collection. On top I added LOVE ribbon and four sugared roses from the check out line at Michael's. Yes, yes, for shame! I should have made my own roses, but look at it this way, I DID use something from my stash so that is a win!
Thanks for stopping by today and viewing my scraplifted Valentine Keurig gift box.
