Well this is what I came up with. Mod Podge Mail.
They're made from cut up pieces of cardboard from one of the many boxes that came into my house, plus scrapbook paper, stamps that I uploaded from a website called alltheweb.com, mod podge and address labels. The address labels I actually made and printed on cardstock. They have funny names like Brent Bacon, Grandpa Grumps, Cousin Cookie ... you get the idea.

I came up with this ~
I made them using popcorn boxes that I cut into 4's. The saying was made on my computer and after printing them out, I mounted them on red construction paper. Then I attached the saying card to the popcorn box with some white curing ribbon. To finish off the project I used packing tape to attach a mini bag of popcorn to the back.
I really love how they turned out and Brent can't wait to give them out tomorrow. Why tomorrow? Well, with the snow days that we had, his Valentine's party was postponed.

He's such a little poser. CK's mom, April is helping me start my photography business, by letting me use her children as practice. If all the people I photograph in the future are as good as CK, I'll have no problems.
I recently made two bracelets using these beads and a 1mm elastic. You can find beads at most craft stores and there's also "Bead and Glass" in Pitman, NJ that you can go to and make jewelry. I decided on my pattern and off I went.
This is what the finished product looks like. Very fancy! I kept one for myself and gave another one to my friend April for her birthday. She liked it so much that she's going to start beading. It's very relaxing and I find myself making mine while watching TV.
I think that the next few I make will have matching earrings and geared more toward Spring. We'll see!
