Hey guys! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to create a fun and unexpected way to show someone you love them. So, I made this little pocket explosion box with Doodlebug's Love Notes Collection. Ahhhh, it turned out so cute! I just love it. It's a great gift idea with a fabulous and unique surprise inside!
To make it, I used an awesome Lori Whitlock cutting file (links below). I cut the box out of white card stock and covered the sides with the adorable Love You Bunches paper and the petite prints, dot & stripe in cherry. To decorate the lid, I added the flower heart icon sticker, a few odds & ends, and some enamel sprinkles.
To finish the outside, I added some chunky twine in ladybug (in a bow, of course!) and a darling red boutique button. The box is adorable closed, but look what happens when you pull off the lid ...
Surprise!! The four sides drop down to expose lots of fun pockets and tags. Each side panel has TWO layered pockets. The front set was made with the pretty plaid paper and each one has a tag tucked inside. The rear pockets were made with the cherry dot print and have a flap closure.
You can fill the pockets with pictures, gift cards, love notes, tickets, or clues to a scavenger hunt. You could also add a few candies, jewelry, or a small toy to the center space.
Here's a photo of one of the rear pockets. I added some Odds & Ends and stickers to the front of each one.
