Valentine's boxes for Mom
This year for Valentine's day, my mom wanted to give her mentoring ladies a small gift, so she asked if I could make small nugget boxes for them. Of course I said yes, so we went to the local scrapbooking store together and picked out paper. I made 20 boxes for her, 2x2 size (that's how many nuggets fit). For the top, I stamped on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock from Stampin Up. The stamp set I used if True Friend from SU, the background flower was stamped in Groovy Guava, and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip, I also inked the edges of both the mat and the WW with Chocolate Chip. The sentiment says, "A true FRIEND IS YOU FRIEND." I matted that onto a guava-ish paper that was used for the base of the box, then mounted it to the top of the slider part with SU large glue dots, to give it dimension. The nuggets are covered in a striped paper. These pics are of the basket of the boxes, so you can see how many I made, and then a close up to hopefully show a little more detail.
Today I'm going to be trying to make as many boxes and such as I can, I have a last minute craft sale opportunity for next weekend and I don't have much made for it! Time to make as much as I can as fast as I can!!!
