Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  Do you have any special plans for today??  My sweetie and I are going out to dinner tonight, but that's about all for me.  We're keeping it pretty quiet this Valentine's Day.  :-)

I decided to break out my Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge and make a Valentine treat for my niece.  This was my first time using this cartridge and I must say I was a bit intimidated by the pictures in the handbook.  I tried to pick a container that didn't look too difficult to assemble in hopes I wouldn't overwhelm myself when it came time to try to put the thing together.  So I picked the box with the flip lid.  One of the lids already had a heart cut out of it, which is perfect for Valentine's Day!

 The box turned out to be really easy to put together.  I just may have to try more of these containers!  I cut a scrap piece of plastic film and attached it to the inside of the lid so there would be a clear window into the box and so the candy wouldn't fall out.

As you can probably tell from recent posts, I LOVE the images from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.  I decided to pick some of those sweet images to decorate the box.

I filled the box with heart shaped Reese's and Dove candies.  I cut 1 inch circles in red and pink and stamped small sentiments on them which I attached to the bottoms of the candies with a glue dot.

I'm going to link this up to the "Be My Valentine" challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut.  Thanks for coming by to take a look and I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day!!
