Last Minute Monkeying Around!

My daughter and I were talking yesterday.  She told me that she and Paul have been together twelve years and that their first date was on February 13th - a Friday the 13th - to be exact.  I didn't realize that it's been 12 years!  They are the true high school sweethearts.

Valentines are always a big part of my show and store.  I always try to have valentines that work for boys.  It's kind of a fine line, isn't it?  I think this one would work for just about anyone.    This is the same set up as the daisy valentine I showed earlier.  The lollipop cover on this one is a scalloped circle with the envelope.

And, of course, it needs a bag of chocolate hearts!

The real star of this project is that adorable monkey postman.  He's a cutie, alright!

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Valentine Packaging and Cherub Image!

Wow!  Has my February been wonderfully busy!  And there's more to come this week.   The salon that I go to is having a big party on Thursday night and asked me to be a vendor.   I don't really know what to expect, but I think it will be fun!  I'm still working on all the previous valentine orders, have to get them all finished by Tuesday and trying to get Valentine items done for the Salon Party...whew!

I LOVE the this sweet fan shaped box.  I used SVG files from The Dreaming Tree.

I scaled it down a bit - I wanted to use 8.5x11 papers.  It still holds 7-8 chocolates.  It seems like everyone wanted one.  I've already made nine!

Aren't those little cherubs the sweetest?  You can download them HERE.

Have a wonderful week!

Mini Box and Heart Rosette Videos

Hi there!  Hope you've been great.  I've been super busy with getting out all the Valentine orders and the last of the kits.  This is one of my littlest Valentine projects.  One of my friends gave me a chocolate in a little box like this one.  I used it as a guide to create this sweet box.

I had so much fun making the heart rosette!  Isn't it pretty?  I have a pattern for you to download below.

Here are two videos.  The first showing how to make the box and the second how to make the heart rosette.


 You can download the heart rosette pattern HERE.

The third ChouxChoux Paper Art challenge (Valentines/Hearts) just finished!  The winner is Debbie Marcinkiewicz of Paper Sweeties.  (I just found out that posting the winner is the thing to do!)  Thank you for being patient while I learn about challenges!

So glad you stopped by!

Hugs and Kisses Doodle Heart Printable

Have you had a lovely weekend?  I've spent most of mine creating some new goodies.  Dennis worked on Saturday, so I had most of the day to play.

It's hard to beat Hugs and Kisses for Valentines.  Candy and the real kind!  

To make the tag, I printed the hearts twice.  Once on white cardstock and once on gingham paper.

I cut out the Hugs and Kisses part and layered it on top of the white cardstock heart.   You could print them out on solid colored cardstock or even color them if you print them on white.

You can download the Hugs and Kisses Doodle Heart HERE.

Don't forget the Valentines/Hearts Challenge is still open.  Link up your Valentines and/or Heart Projects HERE.  

Happy Hugs and Kisses!!

How to Make A (Super Easy) Paper Daisy!

I love paper flowers!  I have a vintage book from Dennison and also a new book full of paper flower how-tos.  It seems like I never have enough time to sit down and actually make any of them.  When I decided on a daisy sucker cover for this project, I looked through both of them.  The daisies are so very pretty, but kind of time consuming.   I was whining (I mean mentioning, of course) about it to Dennis and he remembered making these easy daisies in school.  Seriously???   I don't have a memory like that.  I remember very little about grade school and if I even remembered making a daisy, I wouldn't have a clue how we actually did it!

So are you wondering how to make the daisy?  Here's a video to show just how easy it is:

You could make a bunch of these daisies in no time.  You can make even bigger daisies than I show in the video.  Just use a larger rectangle.   I give a couple of tips in the video if you want to use the daisy as a sucker cover like I did.

If you're like me, you probably think the vintage valentine is really sweet.  I've got it for you to download below.  (The sentiment, too!) 

Valentine Kits became available today.  The I Pick You Treat Box is one of them.  If you would like to see all the kits, click on the Choux Box Kits Club Link at the top of the page and sign up.   When MailChimp notifies me, I'll send you the pictures and info.  You should see the darling Flair Tin PIns!
