Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our new release!  So . . on to my little Valentine sweets box.  I took some inspiration from the WOJ DT Alice here.   I always give credit if I make something similar to what I create, however, I adjusted this with my own size and created a 1" base and the edges are accordion to hold my goodies in and the box is tethered together with a ribbon in the back too!  Well it's similar and I was very inspired!  Thanks Alice. *smiles*  I also pin embossed the umbrella,bow,cheeks and belly for a 3D effect.

stock is 11" x 6", score at 5"and 6"

5" of stock 4" high scored at 1/4 "
Before assembly, sew completely around outside edge then glue pouch sides to front and back, I use hot glue gun
