Frosted Design - Give a Gift challenge

 This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is 
"Give a Gift". 
You are free to interpret this how you wish. I've made two cute Valentine gifts - but what's really fun is what I've made them out of!

I took this packaging:

. . .  and made these Valentines!

Here are close up shots:

The paper I used is the "Love Birds" collection by Fancy Pants Designs. I am linking up at Word Art Wednesday where the theme is "anything goes"!
I hope you are inspired to create a card, layout, or off the page project with a "gift" theme and link it up with us at Frosted Designs!
Thanks for stopping by - I appreciate your comments!

You did a great job on this challenge! I love to re-purpose items, so this is definitely an idea I will try in the future!
