Hi Folks! Just a few more days until Valentines Day, and counting! I mixed it up just a little with today's flip stand page. I thought this would be a great place for my family to record a few things we love. There are two little journaling spots that I added from my stash. How fun is that!?!
I liked this project because it is one of those that came together much more quickly than I expected. (That's fairly unusual for me, since I tend to tweak every project I find.) I used this tutorial and went from there. So let's take a look:
Here's My Ingredients List:
Scallop Oval Punch
Pearl Adhesive Gems
Score Tape (or other really strong dry adhesive)
The scalloped heart used for the top and bottom of the box is cut at 4 inches from Kraft Cardstock using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. I cut four of these and adhered them in pairs to make them sturdier. I then inked the edges in Cranberry Exclusive Ink. I cut a heart to layer from Jubilee paper using the same cartridge. I think it's about 3 1/2 inches. (I used my Gypsy [you could use Cricut Craft Room] to adjust the size.) I also cut the flower at 2 inches from Jubilee paper using Artiste. I inked the edges of the heart in Cranberry and layered it on one of the scalloped hearts. I then created a box and lid per the instructions in the tutorial. I centered the box between the two scalloped hearts and attached it with score tape.
To decorate the lid, I added some pearl flourishes, the flower and some opaque pearl gems from my stash. The sentiment is from the Holiday Tags stamp set by Close To My Heart. I stamped it in Cranberry ink on Kraft card stock and punched it out with my oval punch. I layered it onto the scalloped oval that I punched from Jubilee paper using dimensional adhesive and then popped that onto the top with more dimensional adhesive. I added a couple of pearls to the sentiment to set it off, and because you can NEVER have too much bling!
Here are some close-ups:
And here is a look at the box opened and full of goodies:
Thank you so much, Kim ! What a completely charming gift. !!
