Send Someone a Box Full of LOVE with Free Printable Love Note

Can you believe Valentine's Day is almost here!?! I have been doing my Project Life version of the 14 Days of Valentines for my kiddos for the last week. It has been a lot of fun! My kids love it!!

I know there are some people out there that are not huge fans of Valentines day- but I am NOT one of those people. I love Valentines! It was always a favorite holiday of mine growing up because my mom gave us kids a thoughtful gift on Valentine's Day morning every year. My siblings and I loved it! 

Now that I live away from home, I try to do something small on Valentines for each of my siblings to let them know I love them too. This year I thought it would be fun to send each of them a "Box of Love" since we all live in different states/countries.
Here are some of the things I found to put in the box for my sister... I found most of the smaller items in the Target dollar bin.
The gift I was most excited to include in the box for my sister was this Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition Collection on DVD. It was released on January 28, 2014- just in time for Valentine's Day.

 I was so excited when Warner Bros. asked if they could send me a copy, because if you know me and my sisters- you know that our favorite movies to watch together include all of the Nicholas Sparks movies. Our very favorite movie EVER being- A Walk to Remember! I think my sisters and I have seen that one at least a hundred times- and we still cry every time we watch it! ha ha We love it!

I absolutely love this collection... I think it is so great that it is all condensed into one place- easy to find and easy to store. The collection features 
Safe Haven 
The Lucky One
Dear John
Nights in Rodanthe
The Notebook
A Walk to Remember
Message in a Bottle 
all in one perfect box set! It also includes a special postcard set with images from each film and a letter from Nicholas Sparks. The set usually sells for $69.97 but right now it is on sale for $46.99 in the Warner Bros. Shop . You can buy this collection to own on DVD in the WB shop, or at any other retail locations. It is the perfect gift for Valentine's Day! Whether you are giving it as a gift to your leading lady to win her heart- or giving it to your leading guy to take advantage of the one night a year that he can't complain about watching a chick flick- You just can't go wrong with Nicholas Sparks in my opinion! ;)

So- for my "Box of Love" I picked up a medium flat rate box from the post office. I filled it with all of my goodies. Placed crinkly paper gift filler on top (found at World Market). And then I created this fun printable sign to put on top of all of the goodies so that when my sis opens the package she will know right away that this is a box filled with lots of love for Valentines! Easy right? Simple, but I hope it will pack a big punch! :)

This is a great idea for those loved ones that live apart/ long distance, but it would also be a lot of fun to have hand delivered to your Valentine's place of work, school, or wherever your love is as well. Can you imagine how special you would feel if someone sent you a box full of your favorite things on Valentine's Day? I know I would love it! :)

I am sharing my printable sign for anyone that wants to send a "Box full of Love" to their Valentine too! All you have to do is print! It fills a full sheet of paper- which works great for the size of the medium flat rate box- but if the box you are filling is smaller you could probably shrink the image when you print it.
(I printed mine on white cardstock)

Here is a link to the Printable Tag...All I ask is that you become a follower of my blog in some way- via GFC, FacebookFeedburner, Email, or Instagram.  BEFORE you print. 

Hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!! xoxo, Ashley
