We are so excited to be able to spend Valentine's Day with my family this year. Living states away usually means we don't get to spend special days together, but it just so happens that we will be visiting during this fun holiday!
Most of my family will be able to get together (and we will be sorely missing the ones that can't be there), so I decided it would be fun to make some treat boxes for the kids. I started by die cutting these pillow boxes with Sizzix's pillow box die. Then, I decorated each one accordingly.
For the "hedgehugs" boxes, I stamped some hearts on the background using Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. Then, I blended in the background using some Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. I added some detail to the hearts with my white gel pen. For the sentiment, I cut some scalloped circles and stamped Lawn Fawn's Sending Hedgehugs stamp set on it. I used some more Distress Inks to color in the hedgehogs.
For the skunk boxes, I colored the backgrounds using Tattered Angels' Lobster Glimmer Mist and then stamped a Fleur de Lis using Canvas Corp's Be Beautiful stamp set. Then, the sentiment was stamped with Simon Says Stamp's Stinkin' Cute stamp set and colored with watercolor pencils.
These cute Yeti boxes were cut from some patterned paper Ive had in my stash forever. I used Distress Inks to color in Lawn Fawn's Yeti, Set, Go! stamp set to coordinate. To finish all the boxes and to securely tie them shut, I punched two holes on each side of the scalloped circles and ran some white string around a number of times, and then just knotted it in front.
I ended up making 10 of these for the 10 kids that will be present for our Valentine's Day party. Eight of them are filled with Hershey Kisses, and two have some girly baby headbands for the younger girls who can't have candy yet.
Just can't wait to pass them out!
