Valentine Treat Tote

Good Evening!
Since I was just sitting here for the last couple of hours watching the Superbowl I figured I may as well do something constructive!
I saw this super cool Valentine Treat Tote on Andrea's Blog and wanted to give it a go. I stocked up on all those Martha Test Tubes last fall and I thought with a few alterations to height and width I could do it! I used some Amercian Crafts DP and the cute CC Designs set called Gingersnaps Hey Cupid!
Side shot!
Inside view....like the empty tubes? haha....we have no candy in the house!
ETA: It has been asked a few times if I could share my dimensions using these test tubes.
OK....for the front and back flaps ...they are 4.25 x 10.5
I then scored them at 1", 8.5" and 9"
The inside panel measures 3 x 7.75
I then scored it at 1" and 2" from each end.
That sort of slants inward because of the round tubes.
Hope I make sense....any questions...shoot me an email!
Thanks for stopping by!
