Valentine's Day Cherry Card & Gift Box Tutorial

Hey friends! Valentine's Day is right around the corner and this past Tuesday was National Pie Day, so ... I found a little inspiration for today's project by combining the two! I created a cute cherry themed card and a pie shaped gift box using a couple of Lori Whitlock's fun cutting files.

These would make the "sweetest" gift. You could fill the box with candy, a gift certificate, jewelry, a small toy, money, love notes, or clues to a treasure hunt.

Here's how I made the pie slice box ...

I used the cutting file called 3D Cherry Pie Slice (link below). I cut out all of my pieces, then folded them along the score lines. The small notches allow the paper to bend easily to create the pie's shape. I used the Bella Blvd Bestie Hearts & Ombre paper in McIntosh red for this section. Those little hearts are so cute!

I used a liquid glue to adhere this red "cherry" portion of the pie shape together. Then, I added a base inside made out of Bazzill Kraft card stock.

For the lid, I repeated the process that I did for the base. Then, I layered the red "cherry" filling piece, the kraft lattice piece, and finally ... the scalloped crust piece. I used a piece of foam tape under that for some dimension. I added the cute cherry and some lime twine and the box was complete!

Next up, the cherry card ...

For this one, I used the cutting file called Pop Up Box Card Valentine Cherry. I cut out my pieces and layered all of the pattern pieces before assembling the card. I used Bazzill Kraft card stock, white card stock, and a cherry patterned paper from Doodlebug's Bar-B-Cute Collection (all product links below).

As you can see above ... the band of the card attaches to the left and right sides only, leaving the center of the band free of adhesive. This allows the card to fold and pop open easily.

Next, I glued the two remaining pop up elements inside the band as shown above. I used a cute red polka dot paper from Doodlebug's petite print dot & stripe for the hearts.
