CottageCutz Altered Valentine Box

 Happy Valentine's Day!  It's Carol today with 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:
