Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts. For detailed information and/or instructions, please click on their blog link.

Cindy from THE CREATIVE POINTE created this pillow box using her FREE SVG file that you can get HERE.  An easy to cut and fold box, it's the perfect way to pass out Valentine treats!  The box is decorated with paper doily lace, baker's twine and a diecut heart and cupid.  The cupid file is from VALENTINE SET.  For more details, please click over to her blog.

Octavia from T's CORNER FOR SCRAPPIN' created a Valentine's Day coupon book with the cover and pages shown in the photos above.  She used cut files from the VALENTINE set on each page.  The coupons were diecut using Nestabilities and she used her Cricut pen for the lettering.  A priceless gift I know anyone would appreciate!

Pam from MZLAVR2's CREATIONS made this Valentine's mailbox with a pattern from and used the butterflies from the Creative Pointe's GARDEN FRIENDS--SET TWO to embellish it. The mailbox opens so you can retrieve your mail. Papers used are Recollections from Michael’s and DCWV card stock stock. Pam also used Color Box chalk ink in Charcoal.

Victoria from PAPER SQUIRREL  went a little "grungy" with this Valentine project. She says:  "There was so much ink involved, I actually snapped on the ol' latex gloves.  This heart locket is from The Creative Pointe's VALENTINE HEARTS SVG set.  Visit my blog, for all the details on creating a cool metallic surface from something as plain as a recycled cereal box."

Carolyn from GRANNY MA's CREATIVE BLOG created four projects.  First photo above shows glass etching using hearts that she joined together.  Says Carolyn:  "I was into creating candles this  year, and etched a double heart onto opposite corners."  Next photo is a Heart Shaped Hanging Heart for treats.  Carolyn used the double heart file from VALENTINE HEARTS on the front of this Heart Box and placed a pink button in the center of the large heart.  The pattern for the heart box is a design by © Julie Mascarenhas.  The next Heart shaped box (third photo) is...a little different.  "I thought it was going to be a square box with a heart closure but turned out to be something similar to the Heart Shaped Hanging Heart.  I cut out the Valentine shape, resizing each heart to layer. Once again I used the same file from The Creative Pointe" she said.  Now last but not least, is a Lollipop cover...a small covering in the shape of a heart with a heart shape on the front and back that can be included with Valentine cards for school Valentine parties or for your little ones.  Carolyn added a bit of adhesive to the paper around the lollipop and attached to the cover

 Shelissa from SHELISSA'S CRAFT STUDIO created the four pillow boxes shown above for her son's class.  I'm sure the kids will love getting their Valentine's Day treats inside these.  Get the free Pillow Box SVG file HERE.

Tina from TINA'S SCRAP CORNER also created a cute pillow box.  She says:  "My first pillow box, got the svg from Images by Heather M and decorated the box with Creative Pointe’s FANCY HEARTS set (this is a really cute set). I used the border from the set to decorate the box. Added some glitter glue to the hearts and some twill to close it up. Now it’s ready to be filled with my hubby’s favorite candy."

Now it's your turn to show us your Valentine's Day (Not A Card) Projects!
