Hi everyone! It’s Joann back with you today with a fun twist on a valentines box perfect for that special someone. This project uses your Core Essentials cardstock and some of the new patterned papers.
Here is a closer look at the detail of this lovely box.
Hinged Heart Box Supplies:
- Core Essentials Pastels Collection
- Core Basics White 110lb. Cardstock Smooth
- Coredinations Light Pink Plaid Patterned Paper GX-2300-52
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Darice Layered Heart Background Embossing Folder
- Spellbinders M-bossibilities Dainty Dots
- Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret Die HCD 727
- Liquid Adhesive
- Pearls, Glitter and Ribbon From My Stash
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1. Start by 3 scalloped hearts out of White cardstock. For best results, I would suggest using the Core Basics 110 lb. card stock. The larger hearts are 6 1/2″ x 7″ while the smaller one is 5″ x 4 1/2″ in size.
Step 2. Cut 3 solid hearts out using the Core Essentials Pastels Collection. The hearts measure 6″ x 5 1/2″.
Step 3. Using the same cardstock you use for the solid hearts, cut two 12″ x 2 1/2″ strips and score on the 1/2″ mark on the long edge. If you want your box deeper, simply make these pieces taller. Now, in order for these strips to take the form of the hearts you will need to make a series of relief cuts to allow them to bend. Once your relief cuts are done, emboss and sand your cardstock. Don’t forget to use your Dust Buddy to cleanup!
Step 4. Attach 1 strip to one of the solid hearts and the other solid heart. Make sure that you attach the strips to the opposite sides of the heart so that when you attach them together they will form the box.
Step 5. For one the pieces, cut the excess from the strip off and for the other piece only cut off the 1/2″ score. You will use the extra paper to attach the 2 hearts together.
Step 6. Flip over the top heart and attach the strip of paper so that the box will open and close. For a clean look, attach the paper on the inside of the box. Once the glue has dried, attach the last solid heart on the top for added strength.
Step 7. Finally, layer on your remaining hearts and decorate.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a Mother’s Day Project with you! I LOVE coupon booklets and so I thought it would be fun for my kids to give one to each of their Grandmothers with their present.
Mother’s Day Coupons
My kids and I had so much fun thinking of different coupon ideas. I had fun hearing what they had to say like this one, “Good for one trip to the Candy Store.” I said, ” Now we need to think about what your Grandmothers are going to like.” My daughter said, ” Oh my Grandma LOVES candy!”
To give the front cover of the Mother’s Day Coupons an aged look, I simple sanded the front cover AFTER I sprayed it. Since I printed onto 110 lb White Core, when I sanded the white came through and gave the pot an aged look which I thought was fun. We hope that our Grandmothers will enjoy this coupon book!
