Be Mine, Valentine!



I am off to my cousin's wedding this morning, but I wanted to share a quick project with you since I was M.I.A. yesterday. I was volunteering at school for both of my kid's teachers, cleaning house, etc. I made two of these matchbox Valentine's for my kids to give to their teachers. I started off using the yummy "Slumber Party" DSP from SU! I absolutely love that stuff! I have almost used the whole pack! I paired it with my go-to Valentine's set this year; Heart Prints from Papertrey, Ink. It was still out on my desk, so I used it! LOL!

I filled the boxes with some paper shred and then added some Dove hearts! Yummy! It was a fun, quick Valentine treat! I created the boxes by using the super fun Slumber Party DSP...this is one of the heavy weight selections, so it worked perfectly for this project. The length of the box is 6 inches, the width across is 2 1/2 inches and the side width is 1 1/2 inches. I just scored the paper, left enough room for a tab and used some adhesive to put it together. The box is simply 1/16 of an inch smaller to allow room to slide.



I also made the world' tiniest valentine card to fit inside. Just enough space to write To and From. I know teachers get so much stuff so I am sure it is hard to remember who gave what.




Supplies: Heart Prints Stamp Set by PTI
INk: Riding Hood Red, Palette Noir, Vintage Photo
Paper: PTI White, Slumber party DSP
Accessories: Scallop Edge PUnch, sponge, amuse twinkle sticker, SU! striped ribbon, paper shred and chocolate! YUMMY!
Thanks for fluttering by!
