Spring Blossoms Pagoda from SVG Cuts

I have had this file for quite some time. I made it a year ago and took it to a club that does raffles. People loved it. A needed to return a favor to a friend that had done me many favors. This is what she wanted. A year later I finally am fulfilling my favors. 
The red paper is from ColorBok from Walmart. The pink glitter paper is from DCVW. The flower paper is an Anna Griffin paper. The black and white paper is from DCVW.
I added some rhinestones I found in my stash to the Cherry Blossoms.





It can be a luminary or gift box.

Swing Cards from the train on Creative Kuts Posts

Cheryl Scappinmini has a couple of "train" sets going throughout the year on Creative Kuts Posts. It's not really a train but she calls the year-long commitment that. You also get discounts from her store website at http://creativekuts.com/

This is the first of the swing card set from the January card set I made. I will add more here as I make them. 

The flower was a flower I had in my stash. The skunk is from a Cricut Disney cartridge https://www.amazon.com/Cricut-Cartridge-Disney-Best-Classics/dp/B004GXACD2
The butterfly paper is from DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack http://www.joann.com/dcwv-12inx12in-premium-paper-stack-blossoms-and-butterflies/9604992.html.

I also searched for Tree, Easter, and shrubs to find the other elements.
The embossing on the tree is from Crafter's Companion https://www.hsn.com/products/crafters-companion-textures-embossing-folder-8pc-set/8167151?query=8167151&isSuggested=true. Other places have them also,

 The vellum allows this Love Hut to become a luminary.



 The flap in the back makes it easy to pull out treats, cards or elevtric tea lights.
 It can be a mailbox for valentine collecting.


For the following projects, I used The Ultimate Tool from Crafters Companion to make the bows. The Ultimate Tool does many other things as well. I LOVE IT!!!!
