Christmas Project Turned Valentine's...

I know...I know. Valentine's is over. I just didn't share this before Valentine's Day...but still want to share! :) So sorry! But obviously you could still do something like this for any other event. It's all about the idea...right?! Anyway...when I saw the Christmas advent calendar in the Holiday Mini (I know...you can't order these anymore. But maybe you did and never used it and want to do something with it now. :) ) I actually immediately thought of Valentine's Day. My daughter and I like making her Valentine's for her preschool class and I thought these would be easy and perfect! So I got a kit for Valentine's Day as well as Christmas. Anyway...flash forward to February...this is what we did with the "Count Down to Christmas" boxes...

Just added a few punches to the front and then her Valentine greeting on the top. We made over 20 of these in NO TIME at all! It was fabulous!!!! Here is one all by itself...
LOVE the glitter paper! Added the perfect pop to the box! And I kept with the red and green color combo...because she has lots of boys in her class. And 4 year old boys may not care if they have pink on their Valentine's...but we still kept them gender neutral. :) Here is a close-up of the fabulous glittered heart...
And that Designer Series Paper that is punched out with the Designer Label punch is from the Hostess Paper Pack that you can earn for free!!! Then had to show you my daughter's cute writing...
LOVE IT!!!! She just makes me smile! :) We had fun doing these and I hope her class liked them! Oh...I didn't take a pic of them opened up but there was some chocolate inside.
Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!!!
