Pixie Dust Paperie January Challenge

There's a 
along with a 
and I'm so thrilled and honored to be a member!

The first challenge for 
the year of 2012 is "LOVE NOTES", and I know you'll want to enter this one! Just take a look at our inspirational photo...

The challenge is for a 
Valentine's Day project or a project with heart(s). You can create a Valentine's Day card, or a project with the word "Valentine", or a project with heart(s)... the heart can be on your patterned paper, a diecut, a stamp, vintage images, a charm, etc!
Here is my project to 
give you an idea of what you can come up with...

Since I have a rather
large family and need lots of Valentine's Day cards and gifts, I thought it would be nice to make some mini pizza boxes that I can fill with candy.

I chose to use my
October 2011 Blue Moon Kit because of all the romantic papers it contains. I picked The Girls' Paperie Kitch "Geranium Stripe" DP because of it's beautiful floral stripe on the front side and red polka dots on the back side.

You need to cut your paper
to 11" x 6" and score it at 1" and 5" on the long side and 1", 5", 6", and 10" across... you can see the directions here.

After you fold, snip
and tape, your mini pizza box looks like this.

I made the band from
the American Crafts Pale Blue cardstock in my kit. The red cardstock, florals and stick pins are all from my stash.
I hope you'll try making
one of these mini pizza boxes... or a card or some other Valentine's Day or Heart project for the Pixie Challenge... please join us! I'm just dying to see what my fellow Design Team Members have created.

Thanks for stopping by today!
