It's time for another ELF Swap, this time the theme is Valentine's Day. We had to include:
a pocket letter, flip book or loaded envelope,
a handmade card,
2 handmade tags,
4 handmade embellishments
5 samples of washi at least 18" long
1-2 extra things.
I admit, I did a horrible job of taking pictures this time.
I was originally going to do a loaded envelope, but found this gorgeous vintage looking paper at Hobby Lobby and went for a flip book instead. I'm not sure why I always do the flip book, I have a hard time deciding how to decorate it, I'll probably do a pocket letter for the next swap.
Here's what I made:

The envelope is from my stash, the die cut someone gave me, I just stamped the jar of flowers on it, and added a tag from Hobby Lobby to it. I have this little doily like doll that I added a felt heart sticker to. This is one of my tags, I glued dictionary paper to a tag, stamped a rose on it and water colored the rose.
The cards are from the pocket below.
When you close the flip book:
I got this card in a loaded bag.
Here are the embellishments I made:
Apparently I forgot to take pictures of the handmade card, and the 1-2 extras. I remember throwing quite a few pieces of candy and sweets in the box.

I love what my partner made/put in the swap for me.
