I decided to do a 3D project -- a "Love Jar"
I remember long, long ago, in a land known as my childhood, making Valentine boxes out of shoe boxes at school to hold Valentines from classmates during Valentines parties. I thought it would be fun to make the Hubs his own little Valentine jar of love notes. Hopefully, I can make one tiny note a day everyday of February to fill it up.
I've been wanting to make some 3D projects since I cleaned my craft room and I had forgotten I had some recycled items had cleaned and tucked away just for this purpose, in my Cropper Hopper no less! LOL! Anyway, I used a peanut can for my jar. I cut a slot in the plastic lid so I can slip the notes in easily. Yeah, I could take the lid off but I was going for authenticity of yesteryear.
I covered the can with 12x12 patterned paper, which actually was about a 1/2 inch too short. So, I cut an extra strip to match up in the back. Next time, I may try some wrapping paper since it's longer or even some extra wide wreath type ribbon. The black hearts are a set of plain chalkboard chipboard hearts I got at Michaels. I stamped them with various stamps using Versamark and white emboss powder. The envelopes and bird are all stamps fussy cut. The circle on the XO heart, the xoxo and the red arrows are all dies. I cut a small strip off one red arrow to place on the top of the T0/From heart to emulate the arrow going through the heart.
