Sweets For My Sweet!



Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Last week I made a little folder card for my boys for Valentines and mentioned that I would be making them something else. Well, managed to put something together very quickly yesterday which they have probably demolished by now!


A little while ago, Alex kindly sent me two of these cute mailboxes and it wasn't until last week when I saw her submission on Stamp Something that I knew what I wanted to do with mine.








The second one is a bit more "pinky" so have given that to Sam as being the youngest he wouldn't mind so much - just interested in what's inside! I've filled them up with bags of jelly hearts and marshmallow hearts.






Both images and sentiment are from Elzybells and coloured with Promarkers with doodling around the edges. They've been matted onto Bazzill c.s. I've absolutely no idea who makes the papers as I've had them for a few years now. Used sticky ribbons, Papermania sticky gems and some ribbon from my stash.

Hope to be able to post something else later, time allowing, and must also apologise for not visiting your blogs but still experiencing the same boring ongoing problems! Will try and catch up tomorrow evening once the boys are in bed.

These are brilliant. Do you know where the boxes come from? If your boys are like mine then as you say the contents will be long gone!
