This week’s Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to make a project using hearts. How appropriate for Valentine’s Day. Don’t you think? I decided to decorate some fun heart tins with the Sophia Paper Packet. (My swapping buddies all received one of these goody boxes, so I had the honor of making 6 of them.)
I started with a large heart shaped tin from Papertrey Ink. Then I added a 2" strip of stripped paper around the bottom of the tin. I found that using my Xyron machine was the best way to get the paper to stick. Then I traced the bottom of the box onto the pink floral paper twice and trimmed them out. (I lined the inside of the box with one of them.) I took the other one and placed it on top of the lid and felt for the groove in the metal next to the window. Using an embossing stylus, I followed the groove to indent the paper. Then I trimmed out the center with my Micro-tip scissors. I ran it through my Xyron machine to add some adhesive to the back and carefully applied it to the lid. I was able to run my fingernail around inside the groove to get a closer fit. Finally I added some Hollyhock ribbon around the edges of the lid. I got the idea from Debbie here. She is a genius! *Ü*
The flower came from Close to my Heart’s awesome new Designer Ribbon Pink Collection. I simply cut off one of the roses and adhered it onto the lid with a glue dot. The leaves were made by folding some Pear cardstock in half and running it through my crimper. I cut a half leaf shape out and then opened it up to get the full leaf shape. I sponged some Pear and Chocolate ink on the leaves to add a little more dimension. The tag was made using the sweet Love Ya! stamp set. (Can you tell I like that set from all of my previous posts? LOL!)
In case you are wondering what is inside the box...I filled it with Hershey’s Nuggets. I trimmed some papers from the Sophia Collection to 1" x 3" and wrapped them around the nuggets. (You all know how I love my Hershey’s nuggets. LOL!)
Hop on over to the H2H Challenge Blog and check out the other Design Team members creations. Be sure to visit their websites and leave a little love for them too. After all, it is Valentine’s Day and everyone needs a little love on Valentine’s Day. Right? LOL! (I listed their links below as well.)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
