Valentine Angels and a Meow


Valentines.  Angels.  They certainly go together.  These old valentines are so pretty.



I used these angels a couple of years ago on top of a fan-shaped candy box. 



You can see that I basically cased myself to create this card.  I love the box, so why not a card?

The download has the angels on white and also on gorgeous old ledger paper.

And if you love that heart rosette (isn't the gold and pink glitter so pretty?), I have a video from a couple of years ago on how to make them.  



The little bon bon box is also from that time.  You can see more about it HERE.  



You may remember me talking about how Louisa loves to "RAWR" and that I made THIS Valentine card for her.  Well, she also loves to "MEOW!"  



When she's here, she meows at the top of her lungs and follows kitty around saying "Hi, Kitty!"  When she saw me a couple of weeks ago, she asked, "Kitty? Kitty?"   I had to tell her No, that Kitty did not come with me, that he had to stay home.  So, I made this sweet black kitty valentine for my mom and dad to give to Louisa.  






You can download the Valentine Angels HERE.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you. 


Happy Valentine's Day!

Easy No-Tabs Heart Box



Heart Day is coming up soon.  If you're still looking for a darling gift idea, I've got you covered!

This heart box is super easy to make, the printable is super cute and I have a video to show just how easy it is.  



Included on the printable (and in the video) is a bonus project idea:  a partial pop-up card.

I believe this partial pop-up is the way she was originally meant to be.  You could use it for a card or a place card for a valentine party or maybe a valentine cookie party.



I show in the video the basics on putting this together.  The download includes a back piece to make her more polished.  Then I added a white scallop writing panel just to dress it up a little more.



I thought this vintage image would also made a super cute heart box topper.  The box is large enough to hold three chocolates. 

I like the way this heart box goes together.  It works better for me than dealing with all the tabs that come along with most heart boxes.  The video included all the tips.

The download comes with a template for the top and bottom hearts for the box.  You don't have to use my heart templates to make a heart box this way.  This  method also works for heart dies or hearts that you have cut with your electronic cutter.

Here's the video:
