Valentine Treat Box Tutorial

I made a treat box on my other blog and got asked how I made it, so I put together this tutorial. Be warned it's photo heavy! Here's the finished box:

 
Before the tutorial, these are the challenges I'm joining in with:
Step 1
You'll need:
  1. One 12x12 piece of card or A4, either will make the box
  2. Window Sheet
  3. Card, patterned papers, inks, makers, adhesive, punches to decorate and a die cutting machine of your choice

Step 2.
Trim your card to 6"x6" and 3.5" and 4.68". Score at half an inch in on each side and again at 1.25":

Step 3
Cut out as shown below and die cut a shape iin the main square. Attach window sheet behind die cut aperture using snail adhesive.

Step 4
Apply snail adhesive to edges marked 'glue' in the photo below!













Step 5
Fold as shown to create inside of box














Step 6
fold edges in and adhere to the other strip of base card and fill with choccies before closing:














Step 7
Decorate box. I've used Love You Much stamps and shaded with Markers in Pixie Pink, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. To create the layered oval, I stamped a sentiment from Sealed with a Kiss and cut out using teh word window punch:

 
I also used the Heart to Heart punch and patterned paper from Petal Party scrap kit to decorate my treat box, an oval punch and a scalloped oval punch and a white gel pen. Choccies from Asda!!


Hope this makes sense! And please link back here if you make one, I'd love to see your creations.
Hugs
