Heather and I got together to makes these boxes for our Valentines a couple of years ago. I wrote a letter and put it in the box to my husband for a start for his "treasure" box, for his Valentines present. The point of it was for them to have a place for all of the love letters we give them over the years. The next year I filled the box with 100 strips of paper and on each one I put a reason why I love him. That's about as far as I've gotten with it. Truth be told, it has been filling up with letter and notes that he's written me. He's a lot better at that than I am I guess. I need to do better so that the box can be used what it was made for.
Things we Used:
a box (we got ours from Michaels)
vinyl or stamps
any little scrapbook decorations you like that can spruce up the box, like frames or brads or anything else you can think of
Scrapbook ink to go around the edges
