[past projects] The Love Notes Box

This project is too fun not to share again for Valentine's Day. About a year ago, we had to come up with a gift for under $10. We managed to stay under budget and were very pleased with the outcome.

The Love Notes Box

What You'll Need:
  • an unfinished wood box (got ours at Hobby Lobby $4.99 but on sale for 50% off. about $2.50)
  • metal handle (from Hobby Lobby too $5.99 used a 40% off coupon. about $3.60)
  • spray paint (we used Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze about $3.00)
  • the following free downloads...
      Download Lovenotes
      Download Lovenotescards
      Download Lovenotestags
  • ribbon (from our stash)
  • 3" circle punch (or you could trace the top of a cup)
  • 3 3/4 " white scalloped circle (cut with the Silhouette)
STEP ONE: Gather all of your supplies and print off all the downloads. Cut or punch out the 3" tag and back with the scalloped circle.

STEP TWO:  Spray a few coats of paint on the box.
STEP THREE: Once dry, attach the handle to the top of the box. (We used E6000 glue)

STEP FOUR: Attach the 3" round tag to the front of the box. (We used glue dots) 
STEP FIVE: Tie the instructions tag onto the handle with ribbon.

STEP SIX: Fill the box with blank love notes cards.
STEP SEVEN: Make one for yourself. Your family will have so much fun leaving each other random love notes throughout the holidays and every day after.
