I was thinking it is about time to start thinking about Valentine favors, so I did some more thinking, came up with this idea, played around with MTC and came up with this favor box/card combo. I'm thinking it's too big and heavy to put on the front of a 'real' card, so will leave it plain. What do you think?
I promise I am now all done using the word 'think'!!
I dug out this paper, remembered the lollipop on Mickey & Friends and
decided they would work together. I realize it is not Valentine-y looking, but I
imagine my kids would still like it! This actually looks more birthday-ish.

|Welded shapes to make box|
|Scored, added Scor-tape and acetate ready for the window|
|the window is in and the bottom is taped|
|The 'box' is 1 1/5" square, so I scored lightly for lining up where it will be taped|
|Adhered that side, then bottom|
|It took 6 minis but then I decided to fill it with Peanut M&M's|
I am probably going to change the file a bit. I'll make the shape more rectangle so it is not sticking out so far from the card. I' also add side flaps at the top so the lid won't go in too far. Otherwise, I was pleased with my first attempt at making a file for my own boxes.
So what do you think? Oops! I mean, what's your opinion? :)
