A Lovely Blog Hop

Good Morning and  welcome to
 "A Lovely Blog Hop"

If you are just stopping by to say hello and want to hop along with us head on back to my friend Jill over at
Every Day is an Occasion. 
If you have been following along with our hop then you should have come from my sweet and
super talented friend

By now you know the idea behind this hop is to share
 Valentine's day projects, 
so for my project I made some pillow boxes that will be going to my son's classroom for their Valentine's Day party.
I used the color combo from this weeks
and came up with these.....
My son is having a Valentine's Day Party and wanted cute but not cheesy saying treats to hand out :)
I think this about covers it...don't you??
I ended up making 16 total...4 of each design.
They were very easy to assemble and embellish...especially for a bunch of 6th graders who are just going to throw them out after they get the candy that is inside!!

So there is my Valentine's Day treat!! But before you head out I have some 
A magnet board w/Stand 
that is being donated by Jill for my followers!
All I ask from you is to.....

  13. Those pillow boxes are awesome!!
    They are absolutely PERFECT for 6th graders, not too cutesy or mushy! LOL!! I might have to scraplift this idea cuz neither one of my girls (4th & 6th) like to give out Valentines to boys if the sentiment is anything other than "Happy Valentines Day"! LOL! (but I am sure this sentiment will work as well) :)
