Be Mine Heart Box

Hello everyone!

Simona here with the Heart Box showcasing 
CottageCutz Be Mine (4x6)
from the Sweet Little Thing release.

I wanted to share this project with you for Valentines Day, but
unfortunately I didn't finish the heart box yet.
But here it is now. It can be used also for other occasions, 
not only for Valentines day... :).

First I made a heart box out of red cardstock.
To embellish the top of the heart box I used 
To see how I made the flower click 

I cut the  CottageCutz Be Mine (4x6) once out of red glitter paper and
once out of white cardstock. I sponged the edges with 
Distress Ink - Barn Door.
CottageCutz Leafy Foliage (4x6) was cut out 4x in white cardstock.
The edges of the leaves were sponged with
 Distress Ink - Pumice Stone.
The greenery was cut out 3x with 
out of white cardstock and sponged with Distress Ink - Peeled Paint.

To embellish the side of the top Heart box 
I used some lace from my stash. 
For the sides of the bottom Heart box I cut 2 long strips 
out of white cardstock
and used Martha Stewart punch and some 
red ribbon also out of my stash.

I hope you feel inspired by this project.
Thank you for looking and taking the time to leave a comment.

What a beautiful box. I go to an event every February where we are ask to wear a candy box hat for Heart Month. This idea will be perfect for mine next year.
