MY SWEET VALENTINE with TUTORIAL, MONDAY SNS Design Team Challenge and MONDAY Mail Call!

Hello! I hope you are having a WONDERFUL day! I am trying to get reacclimated into my home after being away and you know how EVERYTHING seems to PILE up. Well, I am working on my attitude. I REFUSE to allow the enemy STEAL MY JOY! I keep saying - don't sweat the small stuff, no matter how much it annoys me. :) KEEP ON SMILING. What good does it get to get mad and hold on to the bitterness, anger, etc. The only one it TRULY hurts is yourself - so for today, I choose to SMILE.
Forgive the paraphrase here...
Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD has made; I will rejoice (regardless of my circumstances) and be glad in it!
Now on to my project! This week's Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Challenge is to create a Valentine Treat Container...I am including a small tutorial. I hope it makes sense!

Cardstock is cut at 6 3/4" x 5 3/4"

With your cardstock facing long side in front of you Score at 3/4" , 3 1/4", 3 3/4", 4 1/4"

Turning the opposite direction Score at 3/4", 1 1/4", 5 1/4"

Trim up to the 3/4 inch lines, creating flaps.

On the top portion trim off HALF of the double flap, leaving the other for the closure.

Using adhesive, tape the side flap and on one side of the bottom flap.

Dont't forget to hop on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and the other Design Team projects...
Do not forget today is MONDAY MAIL CALL DAY! I am going to mail my BLOG CANDY out - I am late in doing that and 2 other cards. How about you!?

I am praying you choose JOY today too! Do not allow others to STEAL your joy!
I hope you have a blessed day!
