I spotted this idea on Pinterest earlier in the summer and KNEW I wanted to use it. I love sending mail and most of all, I like letting the people I love know how important they are to me.
What better way to say I love you than sending a Heart Attack? I picked up a gift box that I didn’t end up needing at Hobby Lobby so I decided a Heart Attack would be the perfect use for it. This one went to Brett’s mama and papa. We don’t see them as much as we would like and parents are pretty important people. You shouldn’t wait for Valentine’s Day or any other holiday to let them know how much you love them.
The best part of this project is that you almost certainly have the supplies on hand. I just used several pages of scrapbook paper.
Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut. Cut. I didn’t use a pattern. I just free-handed it. It took most of an evening, but I just snipped away while Brett and I watched Beverly Hills Cop.
Definitely write a love note at the bottom of your box! Dumping out the box really drives home the “attack” in my opinion.
I wrote some simple instructions, closed the box, and sent it on its way!
We hope they loved it as much as we love them! Don’t wait until Christmas- surprise somebody you care about with a heart attack!
