Class Valentine Pillow Boxes & Upcoming giveaway!

I made 24 of these adorable pillow boxes for my class. It took me a little longer than I expected, but did them in stages. I started with a toilet paper roll.  I measured around it to cut my paper. I used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder to emboss the paper then added it to the TP tube with my adhesive. (Maybe should have used hot glue because the paper kept coming off until I put ribbon around it.) I filled the tubes with some candy and heart-shaped erasers. I just folded in the ends and tied a cute little ribbon around it. Slapped a heart that was stamped with Happy Valentine's Day from the Happiest Moments stamp set from My Pink Stamper and called it quits! I did add a pencil that was disguised as an arrow, but forgot to take a picture of that. At one end was 2 hearts and the other end was the end of an arrow (both cut from the Sweethearts cartridge). Sad I didn't take a picture of the finished product. They turned out ADORABLE!!

Also I wanted to tell everyone that I will do a giveaway once I hit 100 followers. Remember a great way to share my blog with your friends or blog followers is to grab my blinkie on the side bar and add it to your blog.  Thanks for looking and check back soon for my first *giveaway*!!!!
