another idea is make a heart pizza and put in the box after u fix it up..

a wonderful shadow box.......

line it with decoupage on the inside and lay your jewelry in there.........

keep sewing needles and such in them.........

use them also for a photo frame cutting the center out and putting in a sweet picture..

store love poems in them............

i have one that dh got me with two dogs on them so i'll be cutting the faces out and putting my pooches faces in them and hanging them up with ribbon..........

grouping several together with ribbon attached and have a neat wall hanging...

I keep them to use as trace patterns. I've also redocarated them using mactack paper. Super easy project and they make cute gift boxes for little girl gifts or new baby gift boxes.
