Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentines Day!  
It is Nicole and I am so excited to share with you the valentines and boxes I made for my husband and daughter.... I am especially excited about the pillow boxes because I went green and made them out of toilet paper rolls.  Maybe some of you are in need of a last minute V-Day gift well this just might be the thing for you! 

 It is so easy to do... mash down a toilet paper roll until it is almost flat.  Next you need an embossing stylus (if you dont have one you could use an empty ball point pen).  Take a glass, lid or other round object using it as a guide make a half circle using the stylus on the ends on both sides.  Fold the ends in on score lines and there you have it a pillow box!

Here is my first Valentine and box that I made for my husband.  On the card I used a 16mm Black Stipple Silver Edge brad and a 8mm Silver Stipple Silver Edge brad.  On both the card and the box I used Clear Jewel Bling

I am totally in love with the new puppy brads... They are just so stinkin' cute!  My daughter loves dogs so I just had to make her a dog themed Valentine and box.  For the card I used the Puppy brads (of course) and Clear Jewel Bling and for the box I used Black Pearl Bling and Clear Jewel Bling Strips.

Thanks for letting me share my Valentines with you!
I hope you have a lovely day!
