I have attempted to show case the dies I used in case anyone would like to recreate this little cutie! I am also linking this perfect little box up with my friends at Jaded Blossom fro their brand new July Jaded Blossom Customer Challenge!!!!  I apologize in advance but this post is super photo heavy!

Note holder.... could also hold A2 sized cards.... and sooooo much more!

Details and Dies Used: 

Cut two of the large pieces from the 
Using the small piece (shown in darker green) from the same die cut two pieces in red and 1 piece in white

Then pull out your next die set needed: 
Cut out 4 panels in a designer paper and 1 panel in a solid

Next up your letters... remember the possibilities are ENDLESS for what to put in this, notes, treats, gift, love, fun, you name it!!!

Cut out either what you need or a big ole piece that covers most of it and hoard the little letters in a baggie like yours truly :) 

And you end up with everything you need to make this fabulous little box...
