Scallop Envelope Valentine Treat

I CASEd this project from my talented upline, Kim Peck. This was the make and take at our last group meeting. (Thanks to Margo for showing me how to make this since I couldn't attend the meeting.) I think the card is different from Kim's original, but the box is mostly the same.

The 3" x 2-3/4" card inside pulls out. A Ghirardelli chocolate also fits nicely in the box. (A small bag of M&M's would probably fit well too.)

I love the alternate use for these small scallop envelopes. The box is made of two envelopes glued together. Start by cutting two envelopes with the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Scallop Envelope die for the Big Shot. Cut the large end off so that it's about the same size as the side flaps.

Put Sticky Strip on all three flaps of one envelope. (Sticky Strip not shown in image below) Adhere the sides and bottoms of the envelopes together to form a box, like this:

One of the scalloped flaps stays up and the other folds down in the front. I covered this flap with my DSP belly band (1" x 8") and Hugs & Kisses scallop circle, but you could certainly put the belly band under it so that the scallop shows. Another tip: Adhere the belly band ends in the front so that the scallop circle covers up the seam!
