A new Take on Take out!

Im hosting this thursdays meeting of the Hen House Crafters, and I have to tell you Valentines Day is my 2nd favorite holiday. I love all the glitter, and chocolate, the hearts and chocolate, and did I mention chocolate?

Well my guests will be in for a suprise when they see all the Valentines day treats I have planned for them. This sweet take out box is filled with...you guessed it chocolate. These boxes got a major makeover, and are a snap with the sizzix heart die, and a dry embossing folder. The best way to emboss the hearts is to cut them first and then put them in the folder. Use some dimensionals to pop them up

and layer them slightly to the side so they hang off the box a little. I stamped the love twice, once in going gray, then in real red I punched out the "o" and stuck it on with a glue dot. The handle is the real star of the show, its 2 of the largest heart sandwiched together to make the sweetest handle.I cant wait for the girls to see them! do you think they will be so grateful one of them might share her chocolate with me?
These really were easy once I decided on a design, I put them together assembly line style, but even doing one is a snap!

Try one...but be warned in 30 minutes you will be hungry to make another, its always that way with "take out"
