The Petaloo and Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 2

  Box, Children's Hour, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (1)

Are you having fun on our blog hop yet? We sure are! Today, we have two beautiful ideas from Maggi Harding and Brit Sviggum using Petaloo flowers and products and Graphic 45. You will fall in love with these beauties!

First, we have this magical Children's Hour Valentine's box that holds special gifts! Take it away, Maggi:

"I love this sweet little box that holds Valentine coupons and a gift card.  The coupons are great to give someone a gift that they can "cash in" later like a movie date, or for a parent, a delivered home cooked meal.  A child would love a coupon they could cash in for an ice cream date or a trip to the toy store.  I've also included a couple pockets where you could tuck in gift cards.

I added a hinged lid to the box that opens to reveal the message, "Will you be my Valentine?"  Of course, nothing is complete for me without lots of flowers and I've used Petaloo's gorgeous Botanica and Chantilly blooms.  They compliment  my February

Love's Month box so well and add the perfect finishing touch!" ~Maggi
