Trying New Things in 2013

New techniques are intimidating to me.  But I am going to try more new things this year because I usually love the results after I have forced myself to do them.  And many of them aren't as hard as they look.   I am starting out easy with a treat box as shown on SpeedyTV. 

I found a piece of DP cardstock in my stash that had squares of colors.  Many of the squares  that were 2 x 2.  Since the dimensions for scoring were at 2 inches - perfect.  I cut out two hearts from the box then cut out two more hearts to add to the ribbon.  The colors actually blend a lot better IRL.
Now all I need is some Valentine candy.  I hope to make a few more to have ready by Valentine's Day  for grandchildren.
