I l.o.v.e. this time of year.
Rainy days, hot popcorn,
catching up on movies,
Right around early February, I invite friends over for a Valentine's craft-fest, also known as Creative Therapy! I provide inspiration and all the supplies they need to create an altered art project.
Starting with a plain tin "take-out" style box (which comes in red, white and silver), I added an "only YOU" rub-on to the front of the container. Then I glued a wooden red heart to the clasp that locks the lid in place. I found some puffy stickers, and adhered a "Be My Valentine" sticker on this heart.
Ribbon adds so much color and texture to a project. I gathered a combination of red, white and black ribbons, and tied about a dozen 5" strands to the handle.
Then I stamped "sealed with a kiss" onto a circle tag, embossed it, and tied it to the handle as well.
The last step is adding the chocolate kisses! I lined the bottom of the tin with shredded paper, and then filled it to the top with red & silver Hershey Kisses.
The best part of these craft-fests is that everyone has their own style when it comes to choosing their ribbons and embellishments. This means that every project looks different, making it truly unique. I love spending a few hours together with my friends while we relax, chat, and craft. Creative Therapy is just what the doctor ordered!
