Hiya crafty friends,
I can’t believe it’s almost the end of January already. It only seems like yesterday we were taking down the Christmas decorations. But pretty soon love will be in the air with Valentine’s Day on the horizon.
And would you like to win the finished item? Find out how to be in with a chance at the bottom of the post.
I found this cute little wooden heart box at my local craft shop
I thought it would look lovely decorated, so I raided my craft stash and here’s how I did it…
Firstly I placed some strong double sided tape along the top edge of the box
and attached some lace all the way around the lid and secured the end with some more tape…
Using a glue gun I attached a string of pearls to the top edge.
Well, the paper ribbon I used I’ve had it in my craft stash for a long time and never used it. I trimmed one of the scalloped edges, which I then placed along the bottom edge of the box. As it’s sticky backed ribbon, it was very simple to attach. I put the remainder of the ribbon to one side, as I will be using it later.
I found this cute little frame and thought it would be perfect to add to my box.
I needed an image for the frame so I made use of the box that the flowers, which I’ll use a little later, came in. I traced the heart shape from inside the frame around the image and cut it out. To secure it in the frame I applied some hot glue around the edge.
To finish the frame I added some pearls around the bottom edge, using my glue gun.
I decorated with paper roses and a couple of pearls I cut from the string. They were all attached with my lovely new glue gun I got for Christmas (my mum knows me well 🙂
And I also used the remainder of the paper ribbon to decorate the inside of the box too.
I then adhered some white ribbon around the whole of the base before…
…adding some decorative ribbon too.
And here is the finished box
