Here is a Cheesy Idea for Valentine’s Day
So Friends, I want to share a secret with you.
I am an extroverted introvert. What’s that?
Well, basically I can be outgoing in a crowd, but prefer to be on my own.
I am comfortable in my own company, but I like to chat too.
Often while I am creating, I run a dialog in my head.
Oh, I need to mention this tip, or that trick when I’m writing up this post.
I need to say this funny thing, or tell that funny story.
Then I sit down, and become a wooden post. I forget all that. I remember nothing about anecdotes or stories.
Nothing funny, or cute.
Frustrating because I love to laugh. Seriously. I am puny. I make up stupid lyrics to songs. I joke a lot with the family.
I have never been a story writer. Even as a scrapper I found it difficult to tell stories that I wanted to tell, to portray the adoration I have of the people I love.
So instead, I make up puny sayings and create goofy, but adorable crafts.
And hope that you all understand , like my family does, that the words aren’t there yet for me, but my heart is totally in it.
With that in mind…
I came up with the most adorable little Valentine for you to recreate! It’s a bit of a cheesy idea for Valentines Day. This little box is a cake cut box in the Cricut carts. I added a doubled Hershey kiss to create a little mouse…well, a bunch of mice because I couldn’t help myself. They were too cute!
Cheesy – cheese box.
Mice Valentine’s? too cute!
How cute is that? Cute cute cute cute!!!
I have the Cricut Craft Room Cut Files for you to download for FREE here.
To make the box, use the cut file to cut
Cake Box – Sweet Tooth Cart
Circles – Cricut Craft Room Basics and font
Heart – Best Images of 2009
Once cut, I used my trimmer to cut off the scallops on the box top.
Run adhesive along the box and adhere together.
Once the box is put together, use the cut files for Circles (from Cricut Basic Shapes and Fonts) to adhere onto the box.
To make the mice, use the heart shape from Best Images of 2009 to cut the heart.
Trim off the lower tip.
Use glue dots to adhere between two kisses.
Type your greeting and adhere two wiggle eyes and a string tail to the mouse with DMC floss.
I added a pearl nose to each mouse as well.
Add the greeting onto the box, and I used a big gem to make it a little flashy.
Surprisingly the box fits about a dozen kisses!
Isn’t this just so fun and cute?
