Valentine Giftables

Today's post will show how you can use the adorable white plain "french fry" container from the February Project kit, items from the February Main kit, some non-traditional scrapbook products, hot glue, your stash of ribbons, and some other items possibly laying around your work table, and create a couple of festive and out of the ordinary Valentine containers for your Valentine.

While the box was still flat the Grey Flourish pattern paper from Echo Park was adhered to the container.
The Martha Stewart chipboard doily was then hot glued to the paper. Hot glue is my very best friend these days. It will guarantee the chipboard stays secure.
Then a piece of the Winter Wonder by Bella Blvd was punched and layered with a piece from the snowflake garland, and a heart punched from the Grey Flourish chevron side.
On top of that was added a phrase sticker from the Jillibean Soup cardstock stickers.
Using a corsage pin and another of the cardstock phrase stickers a little flag was created and tucked in between the other embellishments.
With seam binding, ribbon, yard and tulle a little junque bow was added to the top to add texture and appeal to the whole gift.

Could not resist going non-traditional with that fabulous chevron pattern from Bella Blvd.
As before, the paper was adhered to the flat french fry box.
Book paper was punched in a scalloped square shape and used to anchor all the rest of the embellishments.
A heart was die cut from the other side of the Bella Blvd Winter Wonder Icy pattern paper.
To tone down the vivid stripe, vellum was also die cut and layered on top of the heart.
A small heart punch was used on more of the chevron pattern, and the same as the grey box, a pearl top pin with more of the Jillibean Soup cardstock phrase sticker was used to make a little flag.
Using dimensional tape, the smaller heart was popped on top of the larger heart.
The flag was tucked behind the heart.
In addition, paper shreds were tucked in behind to add a festive feel to the yellow chevron Valentine gift.
The "you melt my heart" cardstock sticker from the Bella Blvd Winter Wonder collection topped the whole project with the perfect sentiment.
A junque bow was constructed from book paper, seam binding, tulle, gold trim and paper shreds and added to the top.
