10 Things I Love About You Gift {Monday's Cup of Creativity}

For Valentine's this year, I made my sweet husband an alternative Valentine. Naming only 10 things I love about him seems a little lazy, but I really wanted to use a fabulous Watchmaker's case I found a while ago. So, I printed 10 things I love about him, printed my favorite pictures of us in mini size and grabbed my scrapbook materials.

Here's the front:

Here's the inside:

And here is an example of what each one looks like close up:

Each circle is less than an inch in diameter to give you an example of the actual size!

Many of you asked where I found the Watchmaker's Case. I bought it at this store online. 
You can buy them in sets of 10,12,15,20 and up to 40 or 50.

Delightfully Creating,

  6. This is so adorable! What a cute gift! :D

    Tnx so much for linking up this cutie at my party! :D

  7. Hello. I love this idea. Do you mind sharing where you found the 10 tiny little containers? Thanks!! (I thought this might be a good Thanksgiving thing, too. 10 Things I'm Thankful For kind of this.)

  8. Yes! The cheapest I found were from this company, which I bought mine from online:,43326

    They are called Watchmakers cases and you can buy them in the tin cases like this in sets of 10,12,15,20 and up to 40 or 50 I think.

  9. So cute! Question for you--How did you print in mini size?

  10. Good question! I should add that to this post! from my computer (I have a PC, so I used the Windows photo printer), I hit "print" and then selected "contact sheet" under size selection. The contact sheet size is perfect for these little containers.

  11. Wow such a creative and sentimental idea! I wish I was crafty enough to put something like that together, nice work!
