Happy Valentine's Day

It's been awhile since I posted here, but I wanted to share my Valentine's Day box with you.  On top of all my other duties as a lead at work, I have also been assigned the task of Activities Director there.  It's a huge undertaking for 180+ people, but I will give it a whirl!  Our first activity this year was to design our own Valentine's Day box to share Valentine's cards in.  You know, like back at school.  No biggee.  YES it is!!
But not to be outdone, I put on my thinking cap and came up with this:

It's kind of fun!  Hot glue and a whole lot of conversation hearts!  I started with an old round wooden box I picked up at a garage sale for a quarter.  I cut a slot in the top and covered it in pink paper.  I used some washi tape around the slot edges.  Then I glued on hearts.  It really wasn't that hard of a project.  And it looks adorable, I think.  To finish it off, I sprayed the box with a sealant so that the hearts wouldn't crumble away (or no one would start licking on it).
With all the activities for Valentines Day going on at work I used my cricut to cut out a bunch of hearts.  I had all these sheets laying around my craft room, and look what my sweet husband did!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
