Valentine's Day project

I love sending my son, who's away at college, little surprises every so often, I know how much fun it is to get happy mail :)   So I made this for him for Valentines Day and will fill  it with chocolates, I may even stick some cash in there and really surprise him!!
The box is from the Tags,Bags, Boxes and More cut with the fit to page.  The scalloped hearts were made using the Nestiblities, I used MS white flocking on the big heart and sprayed Glimmer Mist on the red one. The heart on the top I heat embossed with red embossing powder. The paper, heart stamp, heart punch( the smaller hearts) and red ink is all from SU.  The ribbon is from my stash, my son is a Music Ed major so I thought it was fitting.
I entering this into a challenge over at Crafting with Cristina. The challenge was to make a Valentine project that was Not a card.


  1. I like this idea. I am sure he will love it.

  2. This is adorable. Your son is going to love getting a surprise from his mom. It is really nice that you do that for him, lets him know you are thinking about him.

  3. That is so sweet! He is going to love receiving this surprise goody. :)
