  22. I’m nervous y’all wish me luck I went and spent my life savings at Hobby Lobby today on supplies for my fiancés huge strictly made with love handmade Valentine’s gift (well basket full of love is what I’m calling it) and this box is one of my projects I’m tackling! Let’s say a quick prayer and cross our fingers for me that I’m successfully going to perfect this beautiful little love box. Because now I’m broke and I only bought enough pretty cardstock to be able to get it right the first time lol. Either way he’s getting the end results whether it’s a box or a pile of cut paper with notes and pictures all over it 🙂 I gotta make this real good to compare to the new engagement ring he’s getting me. Anyways I’ve got a lot to do before tomorrow wish me luck ladies lord knows I need all I can get with all I’ve got to get done in time!! xoxoxoxl

  26. Hi Tania….love love love this and your directions were clear and easy to understand for me! I am helping to start an art therapy group for bereaved parents of infants where I will assist them in creating one of these as a memory box for their baby. May I use your first pic on our invitation flyer as an example for parents to understand what we are making? I would include your website. Ty!

    • What a wonderful thing you are doing Kelly, sure you can use my photograph. Most of my ladies are “visual learners’ and pictures help so much . Enjoy xx Tania

  27. Two questions: What size/kind of corner rounder did you use? Where did you get your paper from? My team’s thinking about making boxes for this year’s seniors.

    • Hi Phebe

      The papers are scrapbooking papers, I have a scrapbook store, so used the ones from here, but you could use any scrapbook card and papers.

      The corner rounder was an old Carl Punch, which they no longer make, but you can purchase a corner rounder to do the same job by Becky Higgins Project Life or EK success.

      Have fun!

  28. What a fabulous idea! Thanks for sharing 🙂
