Valentine’s Day Treat Boxes

My 3 Tier Valentine's Day Cake

My 3 Tier Valentine’s Day Cake

So the second I got a Cricut I was sure to order the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge to make a paper cake for my kiddos for Valentine’s Day!  The hardest part was figuring out the measurements.  I set the base of the cake slices at 8 inches.  If you use Cricut Craft Room, there is an option in the layers tab to make the lid transparent so you can line up the folding edges so that the lid fits.  I tried finding exact measurements but it seemed as though no one had mentioned any measurements in the blogs that I had come across on Pinterest or YouTube.  It seems like for these types of Cricut projects you almost have to play around with them before you cut a bunch out.  Once I matched everything up I used a heart with angel wings from the Create a Critter Cartridge.

I used my Cuttlebug to emboss hearts into the icing for a Valentine's Day touch!

I had a hard time finding Valentine’s Day paper that was not going to cost me an arm and a leg.  I found the perfect Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to make hearts in the frosting!  If you own a Cricut and do not have a Cuttlebug I suggest you get one!  They are AMAZING!!!  They add such a great touch to cards, etc.

Each kiddo will get their own slice filled with some Valentine's Day goodies!
