Valentine's Day Gift Boxes

Machine Used: Boss Kut Gazelle
Software: Funtime Scrapbooking III
Files Used: Pillowbox (available through Gazelle Owner's forum), tag (available in Funtime Blue Book), popkut love bug (available for purchase at Boss Kut Die Cuts)
Materials: Cardstock, pens, eyelets, ribbon

I made these for my baby girl, the lovely little ladies in her dance class, and her wonderful instructor.  With Funtime I opened up the pillow box file and using the text feature typed a girls name in Fiolex Girls font (which I had previously downloaded from, then welded the letters together.  Then with my Gazelle I used a Sharpie pen in place of the blade holder and "cut" the names.  I replaced the blade holder and cut out the pillow box.

Once I removed each of the pillox boxes from the mat, I had to finish coloring in the letters with my pen.  The Gazelle is capable of filling in empty spots with the engraving feature but for me, it was just easier to do it on my own afterwards.

I then embellished the box with some ribbon and the adorable little love bug.

Again using the ability to use any pen, I choose a thinner pen to write the sentiment, "Happy Valentine's Day.  From, Mickaela" in the Funtime font Architec on a tag available in the Blue Book in Funtime.  I "cut" the sentiment out and then the tag around it.  Using the same paper as the wings on the love bug, I added a strip to the top of the tag and finished it off with some thin white ribbon.

I added an eyelet to the side flap of each of the pillow boxes and threaded the ribbon through it.  Now all we need to do is go get some goodies to fill each of the boxes!!

Thanks for looking!!
