Monday with The Project Bin ~ Love Notes! ♥

Hi friends!  

And just like that ~ the winter holiday break is over!
 It's back to college(s) and middle/high school for our kids ..
 I'm suddenly humming the tune to Willie Nelson's  
"On the road again" ♪♫♯   
I've gotten spoiled by their constant presence in the house
and I truly love having them here so often.
Not a single one of us was looking forward to today's return to school(s) :(
 But in happier news -
It's Project Bin Monday!
Which means once again, Kelly² are the highlighted designers :)
The Project Bin stamps are so. much. fun!

I am in love with the In My Heart stamp and die set,
so I am showcasing it again today.
  For today's post, I made .......
Lunch box love notes! ♥

This idea was inspired by my daughter's super sweet boyfriend ♥
He packed her lunch for her and left it in the refrigerator
with a little love note on a piece of paper inside.
I, of course, had no idea but she told me about it later via text
and sent a little snapshot, too - cuteness!   

So here's how I made these:
I cut random scraps of cardstock in a variety of colors in 4" x 8" strips.
Using the score pad, I folded these in half to create little 4" x 4" note cards.
I ran a white piece of 65# cardstock through the Cuttlebug 
with a scallop edge die, then stamped out different sentiments 
 from the In My Heart stamp/die set directly onto the cardstock.
The hearts are die cuts from the coordinating die heart
which I ran through the Cuttlebug as well, 
and then glued those down with Tombo.
The inside of the love notes have plain white cardstock for messages.

  5. Aw, those are just too cute!

  6. So so sweet! I just love this idea : ) My Dad used to pack our lunches on occasion- and of course, we'd all be running late. We get to school and notice he had written a big (and then) embarrassing note on the outside of the lunch bag, usually in bog letters with crayone or markers! LOL A sweet note on the inside- would have loved that!!!

  7. Love this bits of love to tuck in small spaces. Most of the additions to my stamp collection this year will be sentiments. Gotta love these Project Bin designs!

  8. These are so cute and how wonderful to tuck them in a lunch box to brighten someones day.

  9. Great idea for the kids. I love adding a little love to their lunch box. And for her boyfriend to show such kindness? Makes my heart melt.

  10. How lovely Kelly - these are gorgeous!! I used to enjoy having my children home in the holidays, more so as teens - some couldn't understand it at all :-(.
