I Like You candy box

Today's project is a candy box made from the matchbox die. Four Hershey's Nuggets wrapped in dsp fit inside. Instead of making the lid into a slider as in the post two days ago, I wanted this one to open on the side.

I needed a way to keep it closed so I poked two holes through a punched heart and the edge of the lid. Next, I threaded elastic cord through both pieces and knotted the ends.

Slipping the thread loop around the box holds it closed.

The sentiment is from the Love Bandit stamp set. This plus the mini frame and card from the last post make a cute coordinated valentine gift set.
