Valentine's Day card for hubby and box I put his gift in

Last week after getting all the Valentine's Day cards made to send off to Iraq, I figured I better get my hubby's card made. We bought him a (CANNOT SAY WHAT IT IS WE GOT BECAUSE HE MIGHT SEE THIS HERE OR ON FACEBOOK!!!). I had a mailbox that I wanted to decorate to put it in, however it was about 1/4" too big .. so I had some clear paint cans.. nope, too big for it as well.. so I found some white boxes that I had bought at Michael's a long while back..

I cut some designer paper for the top and around the sides, run some ribbon around the lid and punched out some pieces from a matching designer paper and put them on the top.. I had to hurry because Steve had asked me about a movie and I had wanted to pack everything together in one package and needed to mail it that morning.
I had lots of goodies (candy!) that I had bought to send to him and so I packed the box full of the box, candy, the movie and some black ankle socks he had also asked about.. and in the mail it went. I took the picture of the card, right before I put it in an envelope and into the box.
Inside the box I punched out a whoe bunch of red hearts and scattered them over the top.. I had also cut a bunch of thin strips of white paper and crumbled them up for padding in the box. I hope he likes it.. it probably won't get there until late this week.
thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
