I am sharing this on both this blog and my musings blog because well it really does fit both.
My project for this year started as 365 Love letters to strangers and has evolved into what I now call 365 days of Love. I did not want to give up on the project for lack of things to write about or to feel pressured to come up with stuff all the time so I have evolved the project to include random acts of art and craft and well to just be whatever I need it to be on the day as such.
So for feb and march I created a wee box of Love, with everything from a Little album, mini paper bag of bath salts to a handmade heart cushion hangy thing.
Anyway here is the finished box:
the box before it was wrapped with a good view of the Heart cushions that were hand cut out, hand sewn and hand stuffed actually the 23 of these took me a rather long time to complete and I am sure between them and the other things I made more than warrent 2 months project time.
the 2″ square boxes I made from scratch:
the 1″ Paper Bags made from one of My fav MFT Dies
The Love albums that I had to fight with my cuttlebug to cut out (both the letters and album are quickutz)
The boxes ready to be wrapped:
and all finished with a Tim Holtz butterfly die cut and a pretty mulberry rosebud
They also include a turkish delight easter egg as its easter, and some have a small turquoise heart bead in them.
It was a lot of work to get these done, when I thought oooh a box of love for valentines day I had no idea it would take me so long to get them done.
I have to say though that I am really happy they are now complete just have to print a little label for them to say what they are about and give them away 🙂
