It is that time of the year....well - it is super duper close but I know many of you do best working on a tight schedule! Even though my "peeps" are all grown...they are never to old to receive some "FUN LOVE" from Mom and Dad!
If you follow my blog (and I hope that you do), you already know that I adore these little boxes - they are just fabulous and I am thrilled that Stampin' Up! has continued to keep these available! I just love them.
The stamp set I used for this fun project is called "Hey Valentine" and I just could not resist! My oldest "peep" teaches little ones in Boston so you bet that I am going to send some fun and love his way for his class (I LOVED being the homeroom Mom when the kids were little....this way I can still have fun!)
I have a bunch of pictures for you.....(kind of "Show and Tell") - I know that you all enjoy pictures - please feel free to email me if you have any questions and I will be sharing with you more ideas of decorated little boxes! They are just so fun and there and many things to fill them up with!
I used the Blendabilities to color my little guy! I just adore these markers and remember, you can earn sets FREE as a pick in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog (I have been taking advantage if this)...remember to place a piece of paper behind your paper as they will bleed through (this is normal)
When I put the box together, I simply cut a strip of paper from the FUN Stacked with Love DSP Stack at 1 1/2" and then I started on a side and went all the way around (It covered all 3 sides and there was a bit left over but I snipped that off) My dear little Pirate will be on the front! (hopefully that makes sense!)
Isn't this a fun project! I do hope that you put on your creative hat and have fun! No worries if you do not have this stamp set...I am sure that you have many Valentines Stamps and/or hearts....perhaps this would be a fun time to call a friend and get together to create - sounds like a fun time to me!
I popped out a heart and did a quick stitch...this would be a great place to write someone name on it! I can remember getting these chocolate coins when I was young and felt so darn special. I would go in my room and count them thinking they were "real money"
Let's have a great day....today I go to get my weekly x-ray. I am super happy that I just about have the Stamp Club Kits almost ready to go out the door. My goal was before Leadership and I am real close considering my ankle! They look beautiful!
I will be offering a new kit next Monday, please remember to email me when I show them as I can only make "so many" - it is a labor of love that I know we both enjoy!
Stampin' hugs.....until tomorrow!
p.s. - quick tip - I like to place a glue dot on the bottom of the box to hold the ribbon in place to tie a simple bow...this way it stays with the box - a completed gift!!!
