Valentine Candy Box BOX FULL OF KISSES

Hi Crafters,
This Beautiful Box is the creation from "Create with Connie & Mary" Occasions Edition by Cristena Bagne.  You can click on there name and see there instructions which are a little different from mine.  They use 2 boxes to make this (makes it extra sturdy) and I use 1-12" x 12" sheet for my box.  I also use the Basic Grey super strong and thin magnets for my closure instead of hook and loop fasteners.
Either way, I think you will LOVE this Box!

1-12'X10" PC of Real Red CS
Score on the 10" side at 2" and 8"
Score on the 12" side at 21/2", 4 1/2",71/2" and 9 1/2"
Cut on short side score lines to 1st score line on longer side.  These will be the box sides.
On the 3" x 6" center you will measure 1/2" in all all 4 sides and cut out rectangle with exacto knife or scissors.  This is the top of the box where you will place your goodies.
1- 2 7/8" x 5 3/4" real read for bottom of box after lid is put on.
LID Pieces
Whisper White is 7 1/4"x5 3/4"
DSP Love Impressions is 7 1/4"x5 1/2"
Real Red is 7"x5"
Score all 3 of these at 1",3" and 6 1/8"
Use scallop trim border on the small side after the 6 1/8" score on all 3 pieces.
Adhere all 3 pieces together making the bottoms all even and the scallops graduating up. 
Put sticky strip on 1" side (which attaches to bottom of box) and 2 strips between
the 1" and 3" score lines (attaches to back side of box) 
Adhere 2 7/8"x 5 3/4" piece of Real Red over bottom of box for a clean look.
Now use your Bigz L Die "Fun Flowers" and make 1/2 of the flowers in one color and the other half in the red glimmer paper.  I used DPS Love Impressions for my flower and instead of the "Memories" Stamp I used the "XOXO" stamp set and versa mark ink and silver embossing powder to place the Hugs and Kisses stamp right onto the red glimmer paper!
Made my button from the itty bitty buttons sizzlet and used clear embossing powder on it several times to make it thick like a real button, (Didn't have any real ones big enough) put some glittery red thread through it and use a dimensional to adhere to front of box lid and used the micro mini super strong magnet sets for the closure.  You can decorate this box anyway you want but it's beautiful no matter how you do it and it holds lots and lots of candy kisses!!!
Hence the name: "BOX FULL OF KISSES"
