Heart Boxes and the
Very Best of Pinterest Pins

First, I have some cards from my talented neighbor and friend:

Then my co-worker recently lost her 
beloved dog and I made this card for her:

From Stampin' Up:
Flourish Thinlets (Dies)
Simply Sketched (Saying)

I also made these Valentine's Day heart boxes using a unique way to close the lid which were modified after I saw a pin and blog post from Becky Roberts of Inking Idaho fame:

My measurements for scoring:

My 3" square box holds 3 rows of 3 Hershey's Kisses in each row, while Becky's box is a smaller 2" version. The hole to fit the heart through on my version can easily be made with the Word Window punch from Stampin' Up, while Becky cut hers with a craft knife. Here is Becky's verion:

PLEASE NOTE: I'll be taking a break from blogging to enjoy a wedding in our family. I love weddings and especially this one because I'm becoming a mother-in-law for the first time!
