Love Notes Pocket Explosion Box Tutorial

Hey guys! Are you ready to show some love to your favorite people in a few weeks? This cute project would be an adorable gift for anyone who deserves a little surprise on Valentine's Day. It's a pocket explosion box that you can fill with pictures, gift cards, love notes or candy!

When the box is closed, it looks like this ...  

... but when you pull off the lid, the sides drop down and show off all of these cute little pockets and tags!

Aren't the colors in the Love Notes collection pretty?!  The project is as fun to make as it will be seeing the receiver's expression when they pull off the top! So much cuteness pours out!

For the top of the box I used chunky twine, Love Notes icon stickers, odds & ends, and a darling boutique button.

The pages inside were cut from cherry petite prints ... one of my favorite papers to use instead of plain card stock.  Can you also tell I love the enamel hearts?

There are quite a few pieces to this project, so to make the cutting easier, I created a quick video about the pieces...

Lori also has a more in-depth tutorial for the basic project here.
Below, I've listed the product links for this adorable explosion box. I've also added 2 links for the instructions for projects of mine that use the Love Notes Collection as well - a 6"x8" album and 12x12 layouts. I hope this gives you lots of cute Valentine's inspiration today!
