Valentine Pencil Boxes by Debbie Fisher

Only a couple more days until Valentine’s Day! I have a sugar free treat to share with you today. I saw these cute Valentine pencils and remembered I had a fun pencil box pinned (instructions here) and decided to make these for some special people in my life. Because my pencils were apparently smaller in diameter than those for the tutorial, I had to adjust the sizes for the box.

To make mine, I cut the designer paper (My Mind’s Eye lt. pink; Fancy Pants dk pink) 5.5″ x 3.25″. I then scored 1/4″ from the bottom (short side) and from the side (long side) at: .25″, 1.5″, 1.75″, & 3″.

After I put the box together with Mono Multi, I adhered a paper doily around the box with Mono Adhesive Dots and then tied a ribbon around the whole box.

The little ‘tags’ are cut from a sheet of Paper Studio designer paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby last year.

This one is all Fancy Pants paper. The black check is a punch out banner piece and the ‘tag’ is a from a sticker sheet. All from the Love Note line.

The last one I made is from scraps I had… ribbon and paper.

Did you create any handmade treats for Valentine’s Day? We would love to have you share them with us with links here in the comment section and/or over on Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by,
