I love swaps in general, but I really love to do them in the beginning of the year. I always feel like I need a little jump start to get my creativity flowing after Christmas has been put away and a swap is perfect for that. I joined in on Vivian’s Valentine’s Swap and my partner was Joyce from Scrap for Joy.
Here is what I sent Joyce. I showed you the Valentine candy box I embellished here. I think I had more fun embellishing this box than I thought I would!
I used this box to put some little goodies in like Valentine themed ribbon clipped with a pretty clothes pin, a papered matchbox with Scrabble tile letters spelling out her name, two little pieces of fabric that have a paper doll theme (she likes paper dolls), a popcorn holder, a doily, and a Valentine themed stamp. Sorry, I didn’t take pictures of all the goodies, but I wanted to leave that for Joyce to share.
What didn’t fit in the box – a Valentine bobble head, some pretty napkins, a heart wall hanging/open-faced card, and a tag ornament.
I had a lot of fun making and putting together these items for Joyce and I hope she really likes it all!
