The Whimseybox project community is bursting with all kinds of fabulous projects, and we love seeing each and every one of them. Here are some recent highlights. Be sure to read through to see how you can post your project to the community, and perhaps you’ll be featured here next week!

DIY Chalk Matchbox Valentines

These cute little chalkboard matchbox Valentines, filled with Red Hots, are adorable. (it also doesn’t hurt that Red Hots are one of my all-time favorite candies.) Check out Ciera Holzenthal’s tutorial to see how to make your own!

Notebook Pen Bandolier

When we were at Alt Summit, we talked about needing a way to keep our pens handy and right with our notebooks so we could take notes at a moment’s notice. This cool leather pen bandolier from Valerie Lafond-favieres would have come in very handy!

DIY Five Minute Heart Necklace

If you have five minutes and a few simple supplies, you can make this sweet understated heart necklace. Mandy Pelligrin shows you how!


Are you making fun stuff? We want to see it! Sharing your project in the Whimseybox Community is easy and fun, and takes just a couple of minutes. Don’t believe me? Here’s a video to show you just how simple and quick it really is. Will we see your featured project here next week?
