A Few More Valentine's Gifts

I'm making a few Valentine's Days gifts for the kids teachers. The bottles are from SKS. Their website is . They are called 4 oz Flint Glass French Squares w/ aluminum lined caps. Order # is 4055-07 The are about 4 1/2" tall and about 1 1/2" wide.

I've had them for a really long time and forgot about them until I saw a cool project done with them the other day. I thought individual bottles of candy might be a fun change from what I usually do.

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Candy Lane DSP.
Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Accessories: Large Oval Punch, Coluzzle Oval Cutter, Trio Flowers and Boho Punches, Rhinestone Brads

These little boxes perfectly hold 4 Hershey Nuggets.

The box bottom cardstock size is 3 1/4" x 3 7/8", score at 5/8" all around. The slider top is transparency paper cut to 5 3/4" x 2 3/4". I don't remember the exact measurements for scoring it but this is my twisted logic as to how I got the score measurements. Score at 5/8", slide that score mark to 2 1/16", slide that score mark to 5/8" and that score mark to 2 1/16". It leaves you with about 1/4" left over to put Sticky Strip on.

Don't ask me if that doesn't make sense, I could have been delirious in my quest to finish Valentine's Day! ;)
