I love little valentine's day cards! Every year I have to check out all the stores to see what cute stuff is available for me , I mean, kids to exchange...this year the winner is Grumpy Cat!
A couple of years ago I thought it would be fun to have a Valentine's Day card swap at my work so I could add to my collection stash and craft up some fun ones for others. Above is the sign up sheet that I made and printed out. Part of the deal was of course you had to have something to put your cards in...a mailbox of sorts! I have such fond memories of making a valentine's box from a shoe box when I was in first grade (aluminum foil was heavily involved) and you better believe I was looking forward to making this one too.
Here is what I came up with. The outside.
I scanned several of my Ren and Stimpy cards, printed them out and glued them down. Along with adding some ribbon and stickers. Happy, happy, joy, joy!
These are the cards I made for everyone...creepy and cute!
I had plans on making some cookies with icing spiderwebs and a small spider with a heart shaped body to include but they didn't work out. I then opted instead for plastic spiders mixed in with little conversation hearts!
