Simple Conversation Heart Box & NEW CATALOG!

Here's a simple Conversation Heart Box I made with minimal supplies. You don't have to put on the belly band, but it's a nice place to stamp a greeting, or write your "to" and "from" info. And the card stock used for the belly band is a leftover scrap, anyway. The written instructions for the box are HERE.

While you're here, please check out the Longaberger Baskets I have for sale. They make great gifts--let your sweetie know where to find them, and which ones you want for Valentine's Day :-) Your purchases help support my stamping habit, which in turn helps support my blog being filled with new ideas for new product!
