Happy Valentine Weekend with Stampotique

There's plenty of love inspiration at the stampotique designer's challenge. As the design team has grown, the challenge posts are now split over 4 posts, so it's worth popping back and seeing all the creations.
Don't forget to take part in the challenge, and as it's the first challenge of the month you don't even have to use Stampotique stamps (and lets face it we all have something love themed in our collection) and you could win $30 worth of stamps!!

My challenge piece will be posted on wednesday, but you can get a preview here. I decided to make a simple valentine gift box. (I did see something similar to this on a blog recently and meant to credit it but can't find it, if you know where it is please let me know.) - I found it.... here

I simply chose the size of label die that fit my image and then made a really simple box, and used the diecut as a lid. I added a ribbon and a tag and fastened with velcro.

This would be perfect for holding chocolate or jewellery, but believe it or not actually holds 3 pairs of socks!!

stamps used 3019 bow heart
6119 hanging hearts

which are available direct from Stampotique or from Happy Daze in the UK
