Oh my – I have been away from my blog for way too long!  I didn’t mean too, but by the time I got ready to work on my blog it was time to go to bed so I would plan to do it the next day and then it happened again.  So bad me. I meant to post about Valentine projects the last few days. And since that didn’t happen this post will just include multiple projects for Valentine’s day.  Many of these are swaps and some I have used in my classes over the last week or two.

Ok here we go – these first few pictures were all ideas from swaps that I received at Leadership – most are from a Treat Wrapper swap that I participated in – it is always lots of fun to see all the fun ways people package up little treats.  A couple of these are pictures of my actual swap that I received and others I have made a few minor changes to and used them in one of my classes.  If I know the creator I will also try to add that information but some of them didn’t have names (or I lost them in transit at some point).

Cupid Box by Frances Wagner - this is the swap I received - it has an oatmeal cream pie or something similar inside.

Cute little envelope with a wrapped peppermint patty inside - this is one of the swaps I received and I did not find the name of the person that created it.

triangle treat - Designer Paper wrapped around a piece of Toblerone (my favorite) then wrapped in cellophane with ribbon tied ends - and a tag added to the front - this was the swap I received - I'm not sure who made it.

Dragonfly Treat - We made these in my Love is in the Air class on Friday - this idea comes from Connie Babbert and was her swap at leadershp. I didn't make any changes and she has instructions on her blog. Really Cute!

Strawberry Basket - original swap from Brenda McBride - this is a slightly altered version that we made at my Friday class - i changed the colors to Real Red and Lucky Limeade, and used the Sale-A-Bration Lucky Limeade ribbon for the strawberries. Those are dum-dum's by the way. The shreds in the box are made from the recycled paper in our orders. I also changed the ribbon and brads that I used on the box - its' made from two of the scalloped envelopes.

I received this little goody bag from my friend Shannon West. Inside were candy kisses, hugs and gummy lips!

One more project.  This one wasn’t from Leadership but I found it on a blog – it was created by Lisa Young.  She had instructions on her blog and i pretty much did exactly what she did.
