Valentine's Day Already?

It's that time again.  My friends and coworkers are asking for a craft day to create a Valentine's gift so I'll start going through some ideas.  In the meantime, I have been rearranging the Command Center and found this old candy heart that Kenny must have given me who knows how many years ago.  So...I kept it for a reason to UPCYCLE!  And now it's time:
I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with it now that it's made.  I guess I'll put some chocolate goodies and give it to Kenny or who knows, this may go to my friend Carole who is my Valentine Swap partner.

Red paper scraps
pearl beads
Black seam binding ribbon
metal spinner (Tim Holtz)
old ticket
stamps:  Love and Cupid ($1 bin at Michael's from a few years back)
portion of white doily
Tattered Angels pearl glimmermist


  1. Very cool! I love how you upcycled this box and the rolled flowers are perfect.

  2. Fantastic! You are the queen of upcycling. You make the cutest things of of something old.

  3. GORGEOUS!!!!! After you finish addressing and sending it to sweet Carole you can get started on mine! *giggles!!* It really is absolutely beautiful!! :)

  4. The flowers are so pretty and I love your wonderful recycled box!
