I fantasize about winning the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes…and I’m quite sure I would spend every last dime on pretty paper packages. And Valentinos. And Swedish Fish. In that order.

Thankfully, I can make my own paper packages. I can afford the occasional package of Swedish Fish. The Valentinos though – those are gonna have to fall out of the sky. Here’s hoping for a patent leather pump thunderstorm. Size 41 please.

Let’s go ahead and make some pretty paper packages and check that off the list. Back in the day, I published this tutorial  showing you how to make beautiful petal envelopes for the holidays. Today, we’re stepping it up just slightly and making pretty petal boxes that are easy to make – and perfect for giving small gifts. Strap on your Valentinos friends – let’s get this started.

    Se you in my blogg when I have done that! 😉

  4. I really like this stepped up box. I bet a stack of these in pastel colors filled with some baked brownies would be spectacular! Thanks for showing us another way to use up our paper stash, Amber!

  5. I remember those beautiful petal envelopes, Amber. So glad you have altered the design and come up with these pretty boxes 🙂

    One day soon, I am sure you will have your Valentinos!!!
