Every week for work one of us has to come up with an activity to start our Tuesday Meeting. Our lovely, Type 1 Emily came up with the great idea to make Valentine's Boxes and pass out Valentines to each other! I was so excited! I love creating, crafting and project-ing. We had one week to get it ready, soI decided not to think about it too much but just do what popped into my head first, which was: remake my 6th Grade Valentine's Box. So I went with it, but this time instead of a blond girl, I went with Brunette and made it me!
|The box was inspired by this cut out picture which was|
on the bottom of every Valentine.

All very "me!"
I thought I would win one of the categories (funniest, most creative, most true to Type) for sure! But when the other boxes started arriving I was less and less sure! I was amazed by the creativity and time spent on each box!!! I didn't end up winning a prize. My competitive side started to take over and Tanner reminded me it was just a silly box...yeah, right. Easy to say when you win...
Here are the amazing Valentine's Boxes!!! I hope you can get some fun ideas for your own (or your kid's) V-Day box.

|Nicole (Type 4)|
|Mandi (Type 4)|
|Chris (Type 2)|
He won Funniest - you push the button and it says, "Why would anyone want to give me a Valentine? I'm just a plain old box. Poor me." Haha! Totally a Type 2 Box.
|Sarah (Type 3)|
Won Most Creative
|Tanner (Type 3)|
He put Hand Warmers behind the paper, so the box was really HOT!
|Jon (Type 2)|
Well, you can tell we all had a lot of fun making our Valentine's Boxes! Like I said, I was BLOWN AWAY by the caliber of these boxes! It's obvious we are very passionate and dedicated people (in whatever we do)! I'm so grateful for the work team we have!
