We made valentines and valentine jewelry, tonight. We ate chicken noodle soup because Vivi wasn’t feeling well. She persevered to get her valentines ready for school tomorrow. No store-bought cards allowed.

I have, in fact, gone paper and glue crazy!
This is my latest magazine page envelope.
I have lots of ribbon…
so I added a bit!
It’s finished (when it dries!)
It took days, but I didn’t have to buy a thing.
I had the paper, the glue and the spray paint. Amazon supplied the box. I was pleased to see that the box came from Carolina Container in High Point, NC! I was still shipping (shopping) local!
The ribbon trim still had it’s 75 cent Hancock Fabrics Clearance sticker. I am not a hoarder. I am an investor!”
Recycling an Amazon Box
I am not entirely sure it’s worth it.
I have all the supplies, including a pack of what I thought was a variety of scrapbook paper. 25 sheets of the same thing. I usually buy scrapbook papers in 2’s. I have plenty of this.
I already had the gold spray paint I used on the inside of the box, and of course, I have lots of glue. I’m trying different kinds, including basting spray. Elmer’s Extra Strength Craft Bond Glue Stick is the current leader, but I’m about to run out (second stick.)
Overall, it’s not costing me anything new, but it is time consuming.
My plantar fasciitis is back with a vengeance, so while I’m staying off my feet, I may as well watch glue dry!
