Today I wanted to create a Valentine's gift box in non traditional colors. I came up with this ....
The box itself is created by using the envelope punch board ( love this board ) . Using a 8x8 piece of cardstock punch and score at 2" all around. Flip over cardstock and punch and score again at 2" all around. Crease all your score lines. Bring in your corners, fold a adhere together and there you have it a pretty box.
The box is held close with a belly band ( park lane DSP). So this way your recipient will not have to destroy the box when opening.
The embellishments are created by trimming down the tea lace doily to slide under band. A loopy birds nest of thick backers twine in baked brown sugar, then a 2" circle punched out and embossed adhere with dimensionals, scallop circle punch out of silver glimmer paper on top of that is a punched out hearth and a banner made with the teeny tiny wishes stamp set. A clothes pin because it's cute :o)
I really enjoyed making this one!! Hope you like it!!!
