Valentine Message Container

This posting is a bit late today. OMG - Finally, I had some fun today......I made these Valentine Message Containers - know what they are? Look at the Main catalog Page 203 Stampin Store Containers (item #103649). They're only $3.95 for 6!!!!! Wowsa - and look what you can make with them besides using them to organize your small embellishments. This was sooo much fun to make especially with the new Sending Love DSP - we LOVE it, don't we? It's RED!!!!! I made 2 different ones with 4 different messages. This can also be a candy container but a message is so much sweeter.

Here's the front of one of them:


Close-up of the 2nd version:

Container #1: opened

Box #1: message "I heart You". The letters are popped with dimensionals. The scallop punches are attached to the ribbon using sticky tape. Scattered punched hearts.

Box #2: Opened
Box #2: message "Kiss"..........maybe I should add "me"?

Box #3: Opened

Box #3: message "Love"

Box #4: opened

Box #4: message "Thanks"

Here's the back of one of them:

Hey Patti, I was at the regionals in Phoenix at the table just behind you and swapped 2 cards and was fortunate to get 2 of yours. I'm a new demonstrator and at the time I didn't know you were the Creations by Patti lady....found out from reading and seeing your swaps on your blog this and your super awesome creations are famous - should have got your autograph!! Anyway, I'm so glad I got to swap with you and be at the same event as you. Love to see what new things you come up with and enjoy reading your blog!! Mary L at

What a great way to use up the empty containers we all seem to accumulate as well! Thanks for the idea!
