Hi all!

I had to share this with you! I didn't make this for Valentine's Day, but my partner needed a pick me up!

I bought a heart shaped box, and just decorated it.
No picture of the box before decorating, so here it is after:


And here is a pic of the inside of the box:


It is in Dutch, but you get the idea! I browsed the internet, looking for sayings and so about love.  A few of them:

  • A live without love, is like a landscape without sun.
  • Love is not for sale, but nevertheless the most valuable thing!
  • Love is a verb.

I glued them on the inside.

But there's more:


I made a few hearts: a felt stuffed heart, a golden heart (of plastic) and a key with a little heart-> you hold the key to my heart.

And more paper hearts:


Again, Dutch so, some translations:
  • love is the most difficult jig saw excisting, but still it only contains 2 pieces.
    You make my heart smile.
  • Choosing from the heart, gives you energy.
Some of the hearts are with a little drawing, those were from "Love is.."
  • Love is, making fun!
  • Love is, relaxing together!

Okay, so you wonder why I made so many hearts??

I will show you:


Maybe you noticed the little cloth spin on top? You can attach a heart to it! So you can choose a heart out of the box and then attacht it to the front!

My partner really appreciated this gift. And yes, he changes the heart on top regularly!  Cheesy

I hope it inspires you for Valentine's Day or to let your partner know you love him or her!!


Some of my translations might not be completely right, sorry for that!!
