Hello friends ~ I enjoyed a craft day with some friends last week and one of them brought us all a heart shaped box of chocolates. Oh, so thoughtful and sweet of her!
I haven't been given a box of chocolate for Valentine's Day in many, many years so this was a real treat for me, and I couldn't wait to do some thing crafty with it.
I started on my box that day with my friends, beginning with adding the crepe paper to the back side, ruffling it as I glued it on. Pleat by pleat..... fold..... glue..... fold...... glue........ you get the idea. ;0) Then I cut around the crepe paper trim using pinking shears. I added a lace heart shaped doily and traced out the top cover onto some vintage style scrapbook paper. I also added some silver Stickles to the inside edge of the heart. I've had this darling Pierret printed and cut in my scrap box and it was time to use her. She was the perfect size for the top of the box. She also got a dose of glitter on her hat and pleats of her outfit, but it's hard to see in the photo's.
These stickers are ages old and I almost threw them away during one of my recent cleaning binges. I'm so glad I didn't as the colors matched the background paper perfectly. The button is an old button that I attached a button sticker to. Part of the same sticker set. Cleaning out is way over rated!
To finish it off, I added a trio of mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Since this is heavy in the pink and red department, I'll be adding this to the following challenges:
Cupcake Challenges ~ Pink, Red & White
The Paper Players ~ Love
Color Hues ~ Red & Pink
Just Us Girls ~ Red, Pink & Neutrals
Happy Valentine crafting my friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
