Little Girl…Don’t Grow Up So Fast

My kids are a little too old to be exchanging Valentines in class anymore.

(sniff sniff)

teary-eyed-emoticonBut back when they weren’t and they enjoyed exchanging valentine cards, I put together a cute little valentine box for my daughter.

You’ll never believe that this Valentine suitcase is made from a cereal box.

IMG_3515aI mod podged some really cute valentine paper onto the entire box, cut a slit to drop the valentines through, added some ribbons for the handles and some cute little postage stamp tags and she was all ready to go.

Ironically that suitcase ended up being the last Valentines swap at school.

My little girl was growing up.

For soon that little Valentine suitcase will turn into a real suitcase.

And I’ll admit it…

Not one bit.
