Here's mine! I have had this little quote in my head for some time, and thought it was a perfect little secret to find inside a wee Valentine-y box...



I made the little box as I didn't have any matchboxes in the house, and then covered it in with red paper, stamped it and added the stitched heart on top.
When you "follow your heart", oooh what do you find...?





Inside is a magnet I made with a teeny print of one of my illustrations modge-podged onto a bamboo tile with holes drilled thru it, then I added a sparkley heart and beads and sequins wrapped thru the holes in the tile, like a little hug!

Love it, and its sweet sentiment. The little magnet is so cute; it's great you used one of your own illustrations!
