Endless Love ...

 Hello - it's Helen here with a little tutorial to show you to make this box.  It could be used for chocolates, jewellery or lots of treats!

To start with, you need to cut and score the box lid and base.   I've put the measurements on a piece of a white card to show you what you need to do:

 Cut two pieces of red card the same size as shown above but before scoring and folding trim 0.5cm off one long and one short side of one of the pieces.  Score both pieces as shown above.  The smaller piece will be the base of the box and the larger will be the lid.

Next cut both pieces as shown in the photo below:

Fold the tabs round and stick to form the base and lid as shown below.  The best adhesive to use for this is double sided tape, ideally extra strong tape:

Stamp the 'Endless Love' stamp on to white card and colour.  Add a mat of red paper under the image.  Cover the box top with patterned paper and stick the image to the top of it:

 Add patterned paper to the sides of the box and some red Card Candi:

 I've finished the box with a die cut sentiment and some red gems:

 And here it is again:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
