I had so much fun creating this LOVE train to fill with sweets. I took the Easter train blank from Pinecone Press and turned it into a Valentine train. The blank has a half circle attached on the side of the train so it makes it easy for you to attach the hearts.
The hearts were cut out with a Sizzix die. The paper and LOVE message is from our new "Love You" paper line.
Cut strips of paper 1-1/8" X 12". Wrap strip around box and crease along the corners. Adhere paper to box.
To attach the trains together,I cut a piece of chipboard 1/2" by about 5" in length. I covered it with red cardstock. Attach this strip to the bottom of the train with red line tape. Punch a small hole through end of this strip and attach two trains with a brad.
The wheels are decorated with cardstock and a brad attached for decoration. Glue the wheels to the box train as shown.
The engine is a milk carton box pattern. Click Here for pattern.
Don't forget to fill train cars with some yummy candy for your sweetheart.
Let me know what you think.
