Hello Kitty Valentine's Day Boxes

Here are some cute little boxes that I made using my die cut machines.

Here are the directions for the take out box:

Using a take out box die cut 2 take out boxes from scrapbook paper. I used the Sizzix take out box die. Assemble boxes.
Cut Hello Kitty holding a heart from the Cricut Hello Kitty cartridge.
Cut several hearts using the Martha Stewart filigree heart punch. Glue hearts around the sides of the box.
Cover one of the filigree hearts with glue and sprinkle Martha Stewart pink flocking powder over it. Let it set for a couple of minutes then shake off excess powder. Glue this heart over the heart that Kitty is holding.
Cover Kitty's bow with glue and cover with pink micro beads.
Using a die cut machine cut several flowers from felt. I used the Sizzix build a lilac die. Attach flower layers using a small brad. Highlight the flower petals using opal glitter glue.
Cut leaves for the flowers from craft foam. Glue leaves to top of box and layer flowers on top of the leaves.
Make a handle for the box using a red chenille stem and attach to the box. I twisted mine in loops in several places for a textured effect.
Attach a bow to the handle and glue Kitty above the bow.
