Be Mine Blog Hop










Hello everyone and welcome to the Be Mine Blog Hop hosted by the NEW challenge blog Celebrate The Occasion. If you are coming from Ivette then your in the right place. If not, you will want to start at the beginning HERE so you won't miss a thing!
For my project I made this CUTE gable box. The gable box I bought from Wal-Mart...a package of 3 for $2! I cut the mice from Four Legged Friends at 2 inches with one of them being cut using the flip feature on my Cricut. The heart around the acetate window I traced and then cut out with scallop scissors. Incidentally I can't even remember the last time I used them! :) LOL! I glued ribbon around the bottom, sides and top flap of the box and added a bow to the handle. The framed sentiment is from a piece of paper cut out of the K&Company Valentine stack and matted. I hope you all enjoyed my project and your next stop is Adrian.



But before you go how about some blog candy? This is a picture of what I am offering. There's a set of 5 Cuttlebug border folders, card set, 2 stamps, ribbon and glitter glue. Just become a follower...only if you like what you see and leave a comment with a way for me to reach you. US shipping only...thanks.

Ohmygoodness, Gigi! Your little box could not be any CUTER!!! :) I didn't know Walmart carried the gable boxes (& what a great price!). Were they for Valentine's Day (already had the hearts on them)? I love the mice-too cute! Is the "made with love" a Cricut cut or a stamp? Can you tell I want to scrap-lift your adorable creation?!

Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win (some yummy blog candy!),
