Valentine for a Friend

Sometimes the sweetest gift from a friend is the also the simplest one.

A hug
A smile
A knowing nod

All for the purpose of showing someone we really do care. Love wrapped up.


Valentine for a Friend
inspired by Ann Voskamp's Ultimate Girlfriend Gift

Supplies:
12"x12" scrapbook paper (light colors work best)
ribbon
gluestick
hole punch
paper cutter
scissors
stylus (or a "dead" ballpoint pen)

Valentine for a Friend
  1.  Cut 12"x12" scrapbook paper in half on the paper cutter. You should now have two (2) 6"x12" papers from each full size sheet.
  2. Adjust your printer settings to our custom size of 6"x12". Print my free template onto your scrapbook paper.
  3. Cut out pillow box and gift tag along solid lines.
  4. Use the stylus (or an old ballpoint pen with no more ink) to score the dotted lines. This will make folding easier, I promise!
  5. Using gluestick, seal the length of the pillow box. You may need to hold this for a moment, depending on how sticky your glue is.
  6. Close one end of pillow box. Fill with your tiny gift or goodies.*
  7. Close other end of pillow box.
  8. Punch hole in gift tag. Thread ribbon or string through and tie bow around pillow box. 
  9. Make a Special Delivery to a Friend today!
*I printed Page ONE of these on colored cardstock to stick inside my pillow boxes.

Happy Valentine's Day!
