If you’ve been a yamf reader for a while now, you know I can’t making theme packages as evident by my birthday in a box, guest welcome in a box and summer party in a box. So I’ve decided to start a new in the box series this year where I put together a fun array of things, box them up and share them with you. I’m already looking forward to summer Olympics in a box.

First up is Valentine’s Day of course with a mix of red and pink. To tell you the truth, I had a lot of these items already stashed in my craft/party supplies. And Ryan wonders why I need an entire walk in closet to store them.

sources: polka dot crinkle wheel from BHLDN, heart cups from Party City, be mine card from Egg Press, flower clip from ban.do, ribbon from Sundance, heart brads + heart hole punch from Michaels, clothespins + washi tape from local store – Talulah Jones

    I love everything about this!! I am a huge fan of holiday/party-in-a-box gifts, and like to surprise my friends with them throughout the year. Maybe I’ll need to start sharing them on my blog as well!

    Yours is much more professional, and totally inspiring:) Thanks for sharing!

    I already love this series! After years of doing it, you can do a super duper big one called “You Are My Fave in a box” and it will be a huge box filled with all these littler boxes. It will be like Inception. I think. I don’t really know. It was a confusing movie.
