Lay the oval template on top and choose a track SMALLER than your image(so it won't fall out when after cutting. I read this great tip a few years ago( don't remember where, sorry!) to mark the different tracks with different colored Sharpies, this makes it much easier to see and make sure you put your knife in the correct one. Here I chose the green one)
Insert the blade, cutting just up to the edge of the image, remove the blade, and start again on the other side of the image. Next you will needs paper snips or other small scissors to trim around the image to remove the excess CS from the oval, and you have a window!
Stamp your background paper as desired(don't these stamps make fun backgrounds?!), with a balloon just above the oval to the right to line up with the tail. Color. Score the CS at 2 3/4",3 3/4", 8", and 9". It is not necessary to add the ribbon but it lends some luxury to your gift box. Thread the ribbon behind the giraffe, bend the scores and attach the ribbon at back with glue dots.
Insert your CS into the box and draw a line on the box connecting the tail to the balloon for a "string" with a sharpie pen(see top pic). Stand the box upright and fill with candies* to just above the top of the window, then close the box and admire your work! You did it! (When no one is looking, open it back up and sneak a few out.**)
*Valentine peanut M&Ms , these look really cute with the heart shaped balloons and giraffe print, and are just so tasty
** Repeat this last step a few times, before ultimately deciding to finish eating the candies yourself, they're almost gone...Happy Valentine's Day to YOU!
