A Special Valentine

 Only 7 more days til Valentines day.  So I decided I needed to get started on the little people I am sending Valentines to .  I need to get them out in the mail by Saturday.  Here is one I made today.  I used Calypso Coral for the color of the box.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot and used the Polka Dot embossing folder-#117335-$7.95.  My box does not have a lid.  I wanted it open so I could put in a box of conversation hearts and some sucker.  It worked out perfect. (I did put a little white tulle inside so things would stay put)   I used a doilie (pg 5 -Spring Catalog  #129399  -$2.95)  and one of the tags from the Pop-up Posies kit.  I did add Garden green c/s leaves to my flowers using the blossom Petals Builder punch # 121808 - $16.95.  The words are from the PS I love you Stamp set.
 This is the side view of my box.  I used sticky strip to tape it to the Whisper White c/s.  I wrote on the back of the card.  The flowers are from the new Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit-pg 18 in the new Stampin' Up Spring catalog.   It's a really cool kit.  Not only do you get pre-cut flowers (enough to make 9 flowers),-you also get embossed paper tags, 9 fabric brads, and Vanilla bakers twine.  The only thing you need is adhesive and ink.  The kit is $12.95  --  #131395. 
This is my box after I put the conversation heart box and suckers in it. 

I think it turned out cute.  Thanks for looking.  If there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to call me.  Have a fun week!
