About a year & a half ago, I bought a kit from Close To My Heart called "Who's Your Valentine". I thought the Valentine Treat containers would be fun to make for my grandchildren. It was not yet close to Valentine's Day when I ordered the kit, so I laid it up when it arrived, and then forgot about it until it was well past Valentine's Day 2013 & I was cleaning/reorganizing my craft room! I can just hear many of you saying..."Oh Yeah"...I've done that before!! Anyway, when I rediscovered the kit, I was aggravated at myself that I hadn't used it, so I laid it on top of my craft room desk and would not move it until I used it this Valentine's Day! The kit came with some Valentine colored papers, a cute set of Valentine/Love stamps, 12 tubes, 12 prescored boxes, and some general suggestions of what to do with them! I've really never made a project other than cards & scrapbook pages, but I set about creating these treat containers no matter what, and ended up enjoying myself in the process. The kit came with 12 treat tubes, and I completed 7 of them, one for each of my 7 grandchildren. I think I'm going to complete the other 5, fill them with candy, and set them out around my workplace for my coworkers to enjoy. Below is a picture of five of my favorites! Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
