Are you ready for my weekly Wednesday project. Today, I am following the theme for this month's challenge---hearts....Cheery Lynn has most beautiful heart shaped dies and here I have used the die Heart to Heart. The flowers are all handmade and coloured with Copics. I have tried a pastel shabby chic look for my box and I totally loved the result. Its all lacy and nice...There are several videos on you tube as to how to make these heart shaped boxes and I followed one of them. This whole box nearly took two hours to make , but its worth the effort. Let me give you a brief description of how I made this.
First , I cut a chipboard for the base of the biggest heart die. Then I marked a half inch boundary all around the dis cut. Then I cut a paper measuring 3.5 '' in width and measured it long enough to cover the boundary of the base. Then I scored the base at 0.5 '' and added a score tape on this and cut small tabs so that I can easily curve along the border.
I cut three lattice die cuts and put it on this border covering the edges with dancing doily lace and ribbon. For the top. again I cut a heart shaped chip board and attached it to the back with white washi tape.
Then I decorated the top with another heart shaped die cut and flowers. For the inside, cut another heart die cut and simply stick to the bottom to cover all tabs. Decorate the edges with blings. I hope I could explain the process. Please do ask me, if you need to know anything else.
