Challenge #297 - Button Up~ Sure do Love you

Today I was making boxes for Valentine's day.  I Sure do the Love the framlit die with this set.  These boxes are adorable and could be used for any occasion.  I'm playing along with the challenge at: Use Your Stuff where the theme is about buttons.   So as you can see on the 2 boxes that I created I layered 2 buttons on the top of my tie dye heart.  (Love that techinque) That twine was a bit tricky to lace through the holes but I got it done. PHEW!   I think the boxes turned out adorable.   I plan on filling them with a few goodies for the kiddos.  Now below I used the same framelit but made a much bigger box.  This was my first attempt at doing this.  SO it's not to fancy decorated.  I had to actually add the polka dot washi tape on the bottom to help hold it together. Apparently the paper was not very strong.   I came across the idea here at the The Cow Whisperer  on Facebook.  It's really great.     I think I might use my box to put a small caramel apple in it for gift giving because the stick would be able to poke up through the center marvelously. I love it.  what a great project.

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit.

  2. What great boxes! Just in time for Valentine's Day! I didn't get the die cuts for this stamp set, so I missed out on the box. Now I wish I had ordered the bundle but one can't get everything!
