Valentine Boxes

Making Valentine boxes was always one of my favorite things to do in school. I always wanted to make something really creative and fun.... Well, now that my kids are in school, they get to make boxes.... and now it's really fun because, I have all the scrapbook tools to make them extra cute! I asked Zach what he want to make? He said " A Pencil sharpener." Not really knowing how to make one I saw a box of Crayons on the counter and said "How about a Box of Crayons?"Zach liked the idea and next thing I knew I had all the scrapbook stuff out!!!!
We had a fun time making this project together! I would cut and he would glue and do all the writing... We copied the Crayon box to a tee! Our finished project turned out so cute!!!To be official we even made a color copy of the back of the box and cut and glued it on... (that was a lot faster)
The whole box took us less that two hours to make!
It was great to spend sometime together being creative...

It's been a while...

Sorry, for letting this blog go for so long. I was so busy during the holidays I kinda just let it slip by. I will try to better on blogging.... Wish me luck, (if you're still out there reading this!)
