Valentine Gift Box

The theme for the Design Team at Papermilldirect this week is Valentine Gift Boxes and I wanted to make something a bit more girly than I usually make and can be made without any special equipment.
Gift Box for Valentine's Day
I made the box using a sheet of Ivory Smooth Card which I cut out and scored by hand.
I then cut out some circles in Baby Pink, Raspberry Pink & Mocha Brown card and cut them in spirals which I then wound around a pair of tweezers to make the flowers &  hot glued them onto a heart that I had cut out.  You can use any glue but I find using my glue gun holds the flowers in place better as the glue is stronger and dries quicker although I always manage to get hot glue on my fingers....ouch!
Valentine's Day Gift Box
I then stuck stuck some ribbon so that the box can be opened without pulling it all off.  I stamped the tag which is from Papertrey Ink called 'Do me a Favour' and added a sentiment, also from Papertrey Ink.
