Valentine's Box - I love the fact that...

I'm not one to make any projects for Valentine's Day, so when someone asked me to make a box to hold cards which say "I love the fact that..." so that they could finish the statement on multiple cards I thought - okaaaaay I think I can do that.

I was told how the box should be made so that it opens easily (yes, really LOL). I made a prototype and didn't like what I saw, so decided to create my own (but kept it so that it would be easy to open). I really do NOT like red (the traditional Valentine colour) so I steered clear of that but tried to incorporate the "season of love" anyway. I think I achieved that, as well as it being ok to be given as a gift to a man on Valentine's Day - with the perfect paper collection by Graphic 45 "Le Romantique" - what do you think? You can watch the time-lapse video on how I made it on YouTube here.

Well, that's my one and only Valentine's Day project - next up is Easter! Yay for Easter!!! So much more fun don't you think?


Thanks for stopping by
