Candy Holder for my Valentine

I typically pick up a little something for my husband on Valentine's Day. Just a little treat to let him know I was thinking of him. We don't go all out on Valentine's Day like some may. So this year, instead of making him a card, I decided to make him a little mini bag to hold his treat.

I found the pattern for this mini box on Pinterest sometime ago and never took the time to try it out. I think it came out pretty good for my first attempt.

The sentiment is from Created with TLC and I cut it with my Spellbinders Die cut called Asian Accent. Everything else pretty much was from my stash. I picked up the little ladybug clothes pins sometime ago at a thrift shop and had little stickers to match.

When he takes off the clothes pin he will get a box full of truffles. I may have to sneak a few...

This mini bag was made using 11" x 8.5" card stock. No cutting only folding. I found the pattern over at Silvey's Craftroom. I have added the link if you want to check it out. The fold is a little funky, but it came together pretty nicely. Hopefully hubby will get a kick out of it.

I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:
