Love Exploding Box- Die Cut reveal-HEART

Hello Fellow crafters..  
Us girls over at SOUS have another Friday Die Cut reveal for you and for our challenge this week you are to use a HEART shape on our project..  
I have wanted to make one of these exploding boxes for the longest time now and today I was inspired to finally get one made..LOL
This is a little naughty box I made for my husband.. His birthday was last month and I didn't get him anything since he has everything.. So, this is a late gift, but I'm sure once he opens it up, he will be one happy camper, men are so easily ammused..LOL

So, here is my project:
 It turned out more girly than I had wanted it to , but I just could not think of what to add on to the top of the box.. So, I grabbed my stash of flowers and here it is..LOL

and for a few photos of the inside:
So, the hearts come in as they flutter when you open the box.. I have attached them to strips of acetate 
which are glued underneath the center..  Then added a big pink flower with a heart shaped brad that says "The One!".. Aaaaaaw..LOL

I found a bunch of  love quotes online today and printed them onto the white cardstock, then cut them down and glued them to a bunch of pull out tags.. and there is an added bonus to this box, there are also little naughty tags in there as well just for my hubby.. LOL

and for the supplies that I used:

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Cartridge: George and Basic Shapes (hearts)

white cardstock
papers by. Bringmann (romantic collection)

large pink flower: Prima
large white flower: Petaloo
small colored flowers: Petaloo
Leaves by: Iamroses
acetate strips
glue dots
light blue lace ribbon
blue shiffon ribbon
large heart brad
computer journaling

I think that about does it for me again for today... Do stop by SOUS and check out what the other design team members have created for our Die cut reveal..
