A Gift For My Sweetheart Blog Hop

Welcome to “A gift for my Sweetheart” blog hop.

Sit back and relax while you browse through 17 unique handmade gift ideas to give a loved one on Valentine’s Day. Each stop along the way has a gift they poured their heart into but that doesn’t mean the project contains the traditional Valentine heart theme.

The hop started at Christine’s blog.  If you didn't come from seeing Beth be sure to start at the beginning so you don’t miss out on the inspiring ideas.

For this hop we have 2 sponsors, in order to be entered in the drawing for the 2 prizes you must comment and follow each blog.

Hot Berry Designs
$10 gift certificate

Scraptastical Kreations
$15 gift certificate

You have Saturday and Sunday to hop and leave a comment at all the blogs for your chance to win. The winners will be randomly chosen Monday Feb 4th  and will be announced on Christine’s blog

So I decided to share a favor box that a customer requested for her daughter's Valentine's party.  I had to make 6 of these as she just wanted them for her closest friends.  She did ask that I make pretty basic but wanted a little sparkle...

The box came from the Silhouette store.  The pattern papers were different for each box.  The sparkly tulle came from Hobby Lobby.  I used Jaded Blossom Flag Die, Flag Die 2 and Got Candy? for all the boxes.

Thank you for stopping by the next stop is Jamie!
