Valentine Swap.

I recently entered a Valentine Swap and could hardly believe it when the name of my partner to send to was revealed as being Sherry!!! This was the other idea that I was mulling over for the 4 piece swap so now I was able to do both. I found this exploding box again in my 'Craft Stamper' magazine and had earmarked it for future use. The papers I already had from a digi download that I bought before my UIU pledge.
So lots more gluing and sticking went on but I'm happy to say they stayed stuck together. The shrink plastic 'wally button' was well hidden (no it is not on top of the box). Now what to put inside as my little extra gift? Well chokits of course, the felt not fattening type!!!!!
I was determined that Sherry would not realise that her swap was from me right until the last minute so 'The Doc' wrote the address label, I printed a vague return address label and then even went into the next county (we border two counties) to post the packafge from. Finally under the chocklits was an envelope revealing all.
I had a lot of fun making this too though for a different reason.
