Sure Do Love You, Lots to Love Framlits, Valentine's Day Gift for the Birds, Weekend Project.

I LOVE making these types of Valentine's Day gifts.  No candy, nothing for someone to set on a shelf but bird seeds!  No, not for the receiver to eat!!!  It's for the birds. A Valentine's Day gift for the birds.  Every so often I make one of these. I LOVE giving them out and in February in Minnesota, the birds love the treat!!

I used the new "Sweet Soiree" Decorative Series Paper" to make this box. The "Lots of Love" Framelits are fun and easy to play with.  

I stamped 5 hearts from the "Sure Do Love You" set using Blushing Bride ink. I die cut them and glued them in place on the front of the box.  Before I assembled the box, I used a Window Sheet to cover the heart after I had die cut it out.  I saved that die cut piece and used it to attach the words to. I taped the words together and then punched a hole in the piece.  After the box was set I added the bird seed. I used a 3" x 4" plastic zip bag.  I wrapped some silver fine thread around the box and tied the heart in place using the ends of that thread.  Oh, about the heart. I typed up the words and used my Blushing Bride ink pad and slid it across them. I die cut the words and then I taped them to the die cut piece from the center of the box.  

I have a couple I made in the past that you can take a look at.  One is found here.  Another can be found here. And my favorite can be found here.  My favorite one is more for a class or group project.  You can find the poem for this project on any one of those links.  

This was a fun box to make. And now I'm on a quest to see what all I can fit in that box so I can make more boxes and have more fun!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
