Does anyone else buy pack of craft things and keep the bits they think they'll never use?  I keep everything - even the sentimental hearts and teddy bear images that people give me or that are part of the really cool set I found at the dollar store.  I guess I finally found a use for them this month.

I made a valentine box to set on my desk at work this week.  I used a ton of stuff I never thought I'd need and found that my imagination kicked in as I filled up the empty spaces with other bits of odds and ends.

I like this color scheme of Red, pink, white and baby blue.  I'm seeing this combination everywhere from blogs to clothes and I had a great time digging through my stash to coordinate and combine these colors. 

This was a box for an origami kit someone gave me and so the slot was perfect for valentines and it opens so nicely to get to the goodies.  I hope I get lots of candy.

Lastly I put legs on the box - because my valentine box needed legs.  It wants attention.

haha Im sure I have a few things I think I'd never use stashed somewhere.  What I'm guilty of is saving paper from EVERYTHING.  No matter the size. I love this box though! And the colors, you wouldn't think it would work but they so do!  Baby blue, I'd never have though of it to go with reds.  I love all the little things you put on it, and the legs.  Loving the antique legs!  Hope you get lots of notes.

I now have 2 shops! Scandalous! Take a visit and enjoy Smiley

That is such a cool box. And the legs. I would have never thought of doing that but it turned out really awesome.

beautiful!  i hoard things like that too, although all of mine are still sitting in a box Smiley

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
