Valentine Treat Box

This is little treat box made from a toilet paper roll. I took my roll and covered it in pink paper using my ATG gun. I then flattened my roll and used my bone folder to go over the edges really well, opened it up and flattened it again going the opposite way, you end up with a square tube. Next I cut the bottom 4 corners 1/2" in and folded them in, I used hot glue for the bottom to make it sturdier. To get the milk carton look I folded in my top, you have to play with it a little bit and then crease it.

Then comes the fun part, decorate however you like and I used the George cart and cut out a heart and used the Mickey and Friends cart to cut out my hands and feet. Well I had to add the adorable Peachy Keen Princess Face (PK-640) then placed a baggy full of kisses inside and sealed it up with hot glue as well.
Well that's my cute little treat box, will be entering it into a few challenges this week at
Cooking With the Cricut -- Challenge #71 Child's Valentine -- you must use the colors red, pink and white.
That's it for now, love to hear what you think!!
