Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Its purpose isn't so much to show off my work, it is more of a way for me to catalog the things I've created. I hope you enjoy peeking at my projects while you are here!

Valentine's Day

I know this post is a little late, but I'm just now getting time to get it online.

This is a simple little project (time consuming, but simple). I made these cute little boxes for my students as valentines. I got the idea, well pretty much stole the project, from my SIL Ruthie over at September Ninth. See her cute project here. I used my gypsy just like she did to weld the heart (from Doodlecharms) to the front of the pizza box (Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More). I sized my boxes down because with 19 students, it would take a ton of M&Ms! As it was I used 2.5 bags! I sized my box at 4.59 x 8.15 and the heart at 2.53 x 3.27. They were just the right size to cut two out of an 8.5 by 11 sheet of cardstock.

I used the heart punch outs and glued them on the back of each valentine using the opposite color. I used Recollections cardstock and some yarn from my yarn box to tie the box closed. I wanted twine but didn't have time to get it because I made two trips to Michaels for this project and forgot the twine both times! I used 4 x 3.5 cello bags.

I'm hoping to get some other projects done soon.
