Valentine Baskets


Large Scallop Heart Basket
This basket comes sized at approximately 6" x 6" x 5-1/2" (10" tall with handle included) when assembled making this one perfect for stuffed animals, t-shirts, lots of candy, homemade goodies, or even toting in those classroom treats!  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 
Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the pieces (2-slotted heart bases, 2 non-slot heart bases, 2 square inserts, 4 scallop detail hearts, and the handle pieces).  Starting with one of the slotted heart bases, place adhesive on the backside bottom panel and front side side tab as shown.
2.  Adhere a non-slotted heart base to the side, lining up the bottom panels. Place adhesive on the side tab.
3.  Adhere the other non-slotted heart base to the remaining side, lining up the bottom panels. Place adhesive on the side tab.  Place adhesive on the front side bottom panel of the remaining slotted heart base as shown.
4. Adhere the slotted heart base in and adhere all side tabs.
5. You will have 2 of these square pieces.  One will go on the inside of the basket and one on the bottom.  This covers seams as well as provides stability so your basket can hold more weight.  Make sure to center the pieces in place.
6.  Your basket should look similar to this now!
7.  Grab your two handle pieces.  You will notice a small dash on one straight edged in about 1/2" up.  Place adhesive down from that line and adhere the two pieces together to form one handle piece.
8.  Curve your handle piece by sliding it along the edge of your desk or table.
9.  Insert the handle in the slotted heart bases.  Adhere ends of handle in place.
10. Use foam adhesive to adhere your four detail heart pieces in place!  Tie a bow at the top of the handle piece to cover handle seam and fill as desired!


Bow Heart Basket
This basket comes sized at approximately 5-1/2" x 3-1/4" x 4" (7" tall with handle included) when assembled making this one perfect for small gifts and candy!  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 


1.  Cut out all the pieces.  Starting with the basket base, fold on all the score lines then add adhesive to the four tabs.
2.  Adhere tabs to the basket sides as shown.
3.  Place adhesive on the rounded part of the basket as shown.
4.  Adhere the heart edged panels in place, matching the curve.
5.  Adhere the thin handle strip on the main handle piece, centering.
6.  Insert the handle in the slots provided on each side.
7.  Adhere the side panels on each side, centering.
8.  Assemble your bow pieces and adhere one on top of the other with foam adhesive.
9.  Place foam in the front center of bow and adhere heart in place.
10.  Adhere bow on handle and decorate/fill as desired!



Panel Heart Basket
This basket comes sized at approximately 5" x 5" x 3" (6-3/4" tall with handle included) when assembled making this one perfect for small gifts and candy!  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  
1.  Cut out all the pieces.  Adhere mats in place for all pieces except the one with the handle slots.  Fold on all the score lines then add adhesive to the tabs.
2.  Slide the ruffled heart on the handle (shown in later steps but it is easier to do here!)...then slide handle into the slots.  Adhere remaining panels on the basket sides.
3.  Next, grab the piece with single tabs on each side.  Place adhesive on the front center then adhere to the main basket.  Adhere side tabs in place.
4. Place adhesive on the remaining basket piece.  Adhere in place.
5. Adhere tabs in place.
6.  This image shows the ruffled heart on the handle...again this is easier to put in place in step 2.  Otherwise you have to remove handle from slot and slide it on here.
7.  Place the arrow through the small heart slots and adhere the heart in the center of the ruffled heart.
8.  Adhere the hexagon piece into the inside bottom to cover basket seams.
9.  Now your inside basket will look like this.
10.  Decorate/fill as desired!

Scallop Panel Heart Basket
This basket comes sized at approximately 5" x 5" x 3-1/4" (6-3/4" tall with handle included) when assembled making this one perfect for small gifts and candy!  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  This one follows the tutorial above.







Valentine Cupcake Holders

This is a little different than most cupcake wraps that you will find as it has a bottom portion that the cupcake itself sits in. You can see more images in my tutorial photos that will help explain! And, since it has a bottom you can also store candies, small gifts, and tiny cookies! The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 





Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the pieces and fold on the score marks.
2.  Place adhesive on the tab of the cupcake wrap and insert the tab in the slot and secure.  Next flip over your tabbed cut piece and place adhesive on the square tabs only.
3.  Flip that piece back over in your hand and lift those tabs back up then slide the open ring around the piece to cover the small tabs (that aren't lifted).  I prefer to place my ring around the small tabs from underneath vs. going over the glued tabs - but either way works as long as you get yours to look like the one shown in the photo.  :)
4. Place your cupcake wrap down over the tabs.  Adhere the tabs to the cupcake wrap sides.
5.  Flip the cupcake wrap over and place adhesive on the bottom. 
6.  Adhere the scallop circle to the bottom, centering.  Your project should look like this now.
8.  Place adhesive around your detail wrap.  Start along the bottom edge and begin wrapping/adhering the detail wrap in place.  Use a strong adhesive (like hot glue or Scotch quick dry adhesive) to secure it in place.
9. Fill with a delicious cupcake or other goodies!

1.  Assemble cupcake holder as shown above.  Curl the flower petals with a skewer.
2.  Adhere the smallest flower form in the center of then next size.
3.  Adhere that inside the next size form, centering.
4.  Adhere each flower inside the cupcake wrap using foam adhesive. 
This handwritten love comes with the thin love with connecting heart as well as the background mat as shown and five individually drawn hearts.  All items can be used on their own and can be sized to fit your needs.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

Window Lever Cards Tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your card pieces.  There will be two centers from the frame cuts.  You will not need the "frame" inside (red polka dots in photo above)...however, you need to keep the inside of the card base piece (the kraft color square shown above).

2.  Adhere mats in place.  The frame mat goes on the main card base then adhere the three panels on the inside card piece.  Fold the card base in half (as a normal card would) then accordion fold the inside card piece as shown in image.
3. Flip the inside card piece over and place adhesive only on the panel as shown.
4. Open the main card base then adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the card, centering well with a small frame around it as shown.
5. Fold the accordion pieces and press them down. Place adhesive on the two tabs as shown.
6.  Adhere the tabs to the back of the front of the card (back of the window).  They will adhere close to the center of the card where it folds and behind each frame piece.
7.  Now when you open the card, you should see something like this.
8.  Fold the accordion pieces and press them down again. Then close the card front.  Now place adhesive on the piece that shows through the window.
9.  Adhere the mat to the inside square piece that we kept from the main card cut.  Adhere this inside the window.  Make certain you have the card closed when adhering so it centers perfectly in the card window.
10. Now your card looks like this.
11. This image shows the card more open.
12. Next you will build the snowman.  Cut out all the pieces.
13. Layer the scarf, hat, and adhere the black behind the face piece. Then adhere the nose in place.  Place foam adhesive on the head and middle belly area as show.
14. Adhere the pieces in place, (I put the arms in between the two layers of the middle belly) your snowman should look similar to this now.
15. Place foam adhesive on the back of your snowman.
16. Adhere your snowman to the front of your card.
17-18. Images of what the card looks like now!
