Valentine for an 8 year old boy

I often get orders for special cards, and if you've been visiting my blog for awhile you will have seen these ones.  Apparently the 8 year old brother of that little girl was very jealous when she got hers, so I was asked by their Grandma to make him a special one too to keep the sibling rivalry at bay!  He apparently loves robots, so I hope this one will make him happy on Valentine's Day.  In the up-close pic you will see that the matchbox drawer slides open and inside it are lots of cute puffy hearts from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a little folded piece of notepaper for the love note!  It's not too 'girly', so I hope he likes it.

I had all the little embellishments in my stash - the silver frame (from a buckle), the phone (no idea where it came from, but I've had it for many years and just knew I'd find a home for it one day!), glass pebbles and rhinestones.  Matchboxes aren't easy to find these days, but luckily my DH used to smoke a pipe & cigars, so I have a stash of them, although he no longers smokes (thank goodness!)


  1. This is fabulous! I am sure he is going to be delighted.
