Box O' Kisses
Inspiration: "Diane von Furstenberg's lip pattern."
How you made it: "This super simple box was made with two letter size printouts of the DVF lip pattern, one sheet of pink construction paper, a bone folder and some double-sided tape. The box is made with folds, and then I used the tape to stick pink paper squares in the interior (a lining of sorts).  It took under 15 minutes to make."
If you could give your Valentine to one designer or fashion icon, who would it be? "I should say Diane von Furstenberg, but I'm going with Waris Ahluwalia. He's a hottie."
