My sweet valentine find

The other day I just ran into an antique store, knowing I only had 15 minutes to look around.  I was so very glad I did, because I found this little box of do-it-yourself valentines, which I believe is from the '50s:
The outside of the box is charming, isn't it?
but it's the insides that made my heart sing!
Look at these heart doilies!  And die-cut stickers!
I think this may be in the top 10 of my absolute favorite finds, ever!
I'm just a little sad that I found it too late for this year's valentine swaps and all.
I hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as I enjoyed sharing it!

I think it may be in my list of your top finds ever too!! LOL! May I ask, was it less than an arm and a leg?

What a find! It reminds me of my elementary school days. If the box were larger, it could've been the "mail box" for the class's cards.
