I’ve never really been a big fan of Valentine’s day. My sister calls it “Singles Awareness Day” and boycotts the holiday every year. I don’t take it to that extreme, but we really don’t do anything to celebrate it. Maybe just eat some little chocolates and give each other a card, but that’s the extent of it, and that’s fine by me.
But now with Ty in preschool, they are having their little Valentine Party on Thursday and our February Family Project was to make a little box of sorts for them to collect their Valentine’s in from their friends. Of course I took this one and ran with it. He didn’t really help as much as he has in past projects (i.e. Tom Turkey), but he did help me pick out some of the images we put on it.
I found this great Chipboard box at Michael’s for about $4 and saw an idea in Digital Scrapbooking Magazine to print things off onto this awesome Rub-Onz paper. So, I ordered some of the paper and gave it a shot. I think the box turned out pretty good!
Tony says it’s a bit girly, but who cares, it’s VALENTINE’S day, pink and red! I was really excited to make this box and Ty says he likes it, so frankly, that’s all that matters.
