Happy Valentines Day!
We are getting close to the end of the red madness I promise guys, I am working as you read this on some nice, simple pastel stuff! Today's creation is on the picture on Monday however the group photo is deceptive as this box isn´t hanging.
I thought this would make a great container for sweets, flowers and all manner of gifts, also made in white or cream it would make a nice wedding favour or flower holder for the bridesmaids.
This is based on the same Sizzix die from earlier in the week however It can be hand made and cut without the die.
For this one I die cut 2 of the hearts and 4 of the side pieces however I cut off the folds from the side pieces and stuck 2 together. Next I embossed the hearts and rubbed white chalk ink over before making up the box. Once the 2 hearts are stuck to the sides it leaves the top open, the hanger is made simply by sticking ribbon to each side. This I did by punching holes in the sides and threading the ribbon through.
Finally I decorated this with the Marianne ivy die I featured last week however this time I inked the die with green distress ink for the veins. This was finished with a simple paper rose and the banner with TRUE LOVE sentiment.
In this final picture I have loaded some of the die cut and padded hearts (more to follow as these will be used for Mothers Day) You could fill it with flowers, sweets, chocolates whatever you heart desires.
