For the Love Notes:

Decorate the 2 5/8” x 3 ½” pieces of cardstocks as individual cards. Use stickers, stamps and scraps of other printed cardstocks. Fold a 1 ½” piece of ¼” ribbon in half and staple to the top of the card so that it is easy to take out from the tin. Place love notes inside of the tin.
