One More Valentine Post

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved one(s). We had a long, busy weekend so we stayed in today and ordered take out.

I have one final Valentine post for you. This was the box I made for the two giant Hershey bars I bought for my husband. The card was one I put together in just a couple of minutes for my oldest daughter. The two went so well together, I just had to take a photo to share with you all.

And below are a couple more photos of the two boxes I made for my girls. I decided to use Nerds as the candy for the drawers. I was prepared to empty the boxes into some small zip lock bags but two of the boxes fit perfectly. So, I just wrapped them all in coordinating paper for a nice finishing touch.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Have you finished your holiday projects yet? If not, here is a little inspiration to help get you motivated.....Enjoy!

I made a treat box for each of my daughters for Valentine's Day (one of which was also a camp project from last month). I haven't decided what's going in them for sure, probably some sour gummy candies or Nerds. Those are always a big hit with my girls!

The boxes are made using 3 cuts of the drawer on the Matchbox die. The hinges are also from this same die. I used Chocolate Chip Taffeta for the ribbon closure.

I used the Sending Love Specialty paper on both boxes. The designer paper as well as the flower brads on this box can be found in the Occasions mini.

The following "half cut shape card" uses the Mover's and Shaper's die along with the heart shaped window die. This technique is a very simple way to make a quick and easy Wow card.

This is the card front.

When you pull the left and right sides of the card it opens up to this:

Here is one more version. This card was also a camp project.

And if you aren't too tired of looking at Valentine's, this is a little card I made last year. It is one of my favorites. The envelope is made using the Scalloped Envelope die.

This darling little gift created for a neighbor was another project from my January camp. The carrier holds four milk cartons that can contain all kinds of little goodies, like gold fish crackers, decorative office supply items such as paper clips, push pins, binder clips, etc., and of course everyone's favorite.... candy or chocolate.

To make this little treasure I used the new, totally cute Mini Milk Carton die, Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Good Neighbor designer paper (the images are cut out from the DSP and mounted on the Bashful Blue card stock) as well as, the Mini Tag Punch, Tiny Tags stamp set, mini binder clips, Bashful Blue satin ribbon, and Kraft taffeta ribbon. Hope you like it.

Please feel free to leave comments on my blog. I truly enjoy reading them! Thanks for looking!
