Self Mailing Heart Valentines!

Isn't this so cute!?
I saw this on Janet Wakeland's site and she said they demonstrated it at Leadership. I had never seen this before so I just had to try one! You can mail it just like this, the big heart turns into the envelope!
The paper in the center is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock and the outside heart is one 12" x 12" piece of DSP cut into a heart shape. You'll have to freehand this ladies, sorry! Also the paper I used is retired, I am trying to use some stuff up.
Here is a picture of it part way open:

Chocolate Fortune of Love

This is my little take out container and fortune cookies that I made for the Paper Craft Planet 3D48 'Make it to Go' Challenge. This is the first time I have done one of these so I thought it would be fun.
I used the retired So Many Sayings stamp set for the fortunes and Well Scripted for the heart. I also used Stampin' Up's old take-out container pre-cut boxes but you can get a great take-out template to print out by CLICKING HERE. I used the scallop edge punch, heart punch and the heart sizzlet from the mini catalog for the box.
Here is how I made the fortune cookies:
My circle is 2 1/2"

I even had mini clothes pins to hold them to dry!

Secret Heart card

I found a great template to make this card. I used the Well Scripted Stamp set and the Heart to heart punch.

Pull-out House Card

I thought this little card would be great for someone who bought a new house!
Here is how I made it:

The overall size of this card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". If you start with a piece of paper this size you then cut the bottom square part to 3 1/2" long and 2 3/4" wide. Then make the roof a triangle from the tip of that.

I cut Basic gray strips and then used the scallop edge punch on one side. Use a sponge with Basic Gray ink and ink one side. Tape the strips across the top to make the roof.

Once they are all on, trim the sides to the shape of your white paper.

For the piece that it slides into it is 3 1/2 tall by 7 1/4" wide scored 2" in from both sides. Tape this like shown to fit the house into.

I added a chimney and the door and you are all done! The card slides in and out of the pocket and fits under the first row of shingles.

Here is my new Pop-out Flower Card & Purse gift set. These cards are perfect for Easter or Mothers Day or for anyone who enjoys flowers that they never have to water! You can even change out the flowers with hearts for Valentines Day!
You can make cards with all of one type of flower or mix and match with different ones together. The Purse easily fits three cards with envelopes or more.
This project DOES NOT use any 12" x 12" paper, ONLY 8 1/2" x 11"!!

Carrie Gaskin came up with this type of card for Ustamp with Dawn and Friends and I have changed the sizes around a bit to pop out differently then hers.
