The Book of Love!

Hello friends, on Tuesday I shared this wonderful Book of Love full of gift boxes to fill with gifts and sweet treats.

The Book of Love! Valentines Gift Boxes

This is a requested tutorial and something inspired by the Advent Calendars I saw in many of the big brand stores over Christmas.

I think this would also make a wonderful gift to give someone who lives away from home and missing some home comforts or they may be in the hospital and need cheering up.

The smaller boxes will also fit a Tunnocks Teacake perfectly…just saying!

I used velcro to attach mine, but as I mention in the tutorial you could easily make the boxes with separate lids.
