Card & Gift Box In 1! ❤ Valentines Series 2020 ❤

Hello friends, so sorry for the delay in posting this week, I went away for a long weekend, and although my videos were all scheduled I hadn’t got the blog posts prepared, so I have been catching up on everything this week.

On Monday I kick-started my Valentines Series 2020, I thought this was my 3rd series but it’s actually my 4th…where are the years going!!!

I shared this wonderful Card & Gift Box in 1 and so many of you have been sharing your versions already, like most of my projects this can be made for many occasions, not just for Valentine’s.

Unfortunately, I have limited photos of this project as all of the photos I took before I gave these to friends were corrupt and I lost them all, so my friends sent some photos which I’ve managed to edit a little and I took a couple of how I displayed them on each of their beds.

  1. Wonderful way to use up the scraps Sam. I do have a question, if I do not have the large sheets could I use the 2″ double sided tape & place the strips close together as possible and attain the same results?

  2. OOOPS, If I would have rewatched the whole video I would have heard that you did mention that we could use the double sided tape as well!
