Valentine's Card Boxes


Machine Used: BossKut Gazelle
Software: Funtime Scrapbooking IV
Files Used: Eyelet Scalloped Heart by Phyllis Parkins 0960
Materials: Card stock, embroidery thread, special treats

Here's a simple project that can be done in quantity and quality!  A simple design to make as many as you need or just a few in a short time.

The template for this card and gift box can be found in the Score, Fold, Create! The Ultimate Guide to Crafting With Scor-Pal on page 76.

The front of my box card is decorated with the eyelet scalloped heart.  I first used a white gel pen to write out the names of the recipients.  I LOVE the fact that you can place just about any pen into the Gazelle and have her "cut" out the names.  Makes it really easy to center the names!  I replaced the pen with the blade and cut the heart out around the names.

The eyelet scalloped heart was sized to 2.5 x 2.5, making those eyelets pretty small.  Those small holes made it perfect for threading embroidery thread.


I threaded some of the hearts different, mainly just because I wanted to see how they would all look.

I attached the hearts to the front of the box using pop dots for a little added dimension.

For the inside of the card, I choose to keep it simple by adding a hand written note.  The cutie Mickey and Minnie Valentines were available for free download.

I added some of our favorite treats and now these very simple Valentine's are ready for that very special someone!

Thanks for looking!!

  3. Hi Jami, popping in for a visit, as I'm behind in my blog surfing again. These were lovely Valentines, and I bet somebody really loved these special treats. Is the BossCut Gazzelle something like the Cricut or Silhouette? You did a beautiful project, and I loved how you used the embroidery thread to make the different finishing touches. So pretty. TFS.
