Happy Valentine's Day! Here is an altered heart shaped box I picked up at from the Dollar Tree. I had a blast creating this sweet little heart to fill with Valentine candy. This box was originally red. So that the color wouldn't show through the pink and white paper I chose to cover the box with, I painted this box white. The paper is recollection and I cover the inside and outside of the box.
The Sweetheart Border die was cut six times, painted with Gesso and sprinkled with glitter. After they dried I applied them to the top and bottom of the box along with a string of iridescent pearl trim.
On top of the box I used the Flourish Love Heart cut from white cardstock and also painted with Gesso and glitter. For the vine between the roses I used the Sweet Flourish. The flowers were hand made. I was experimenting with distressing the edges of the petals. I love how much texture I was able to achieve on the petals. In real life it gives them a fuzzy look. I also painted the flowers with Gesso and sprinkled with glitter. The box is topped off with a butterfly from the Fiigree Butterfly Trio.
As promised here is my little mini album that coordinates with this box. Thanks for stopping by today to view my project. I sure do appreciate it. Happy Crafting. See you soon. Here are the dies I used:
