I hope you have all been keeping warm and healthy. The flu bug came knocking at our door this week, and silly us - we let it in. So we are all stuffed up, tired and grumpy :( I did get a new box full of goodies though, so that helped my mojo along :) It also helps that the weekend will be here before we know it and I am so looking forward to getting some extra rest. I think hubby and I will take turns :)
Well it is Friday - and that means it is time for a new Playing in Paradise Challenge! This week it is my turn to host and I thought that with Valentine's day being just around the corner it would be fun to make something that is inspired by a loved one. I hope you will join in! You can make whatever you like using any product you like as long as it is for or about someone you love. I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations!
For this challenge, I made a heart shaped treat box.... from scratch. What can I tell you - it seemed like a good idea at the time! I am really happy with how this turned out, but it took a lot of efforting.
The box itself was made with bristol board and heavy shimmery cardstock. I covered it inside and out with pretty papers from Bo Bunny - Love Letters. The sentiment is a banner cut out from one of the Love Letter papers.
If you decide to be adventurous and make your own heart shaped box - the lid opening should be 1/8th inch larger than the base to ensure a proper fit.
If you haven't already been, pop by the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog to be inspired by the wonderful creations the team and our guest designer have made. Then link up your own Valentine or project inspired by a loved one.
Thanks so much for popping by and for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate them and love having the chance to visit you back. I am a bit behind at the moment with this ugly flu, but will be catching up shortly. I also want to welcome and thank my newest follower, Melanie! So glad to have you along :)
Hugs and Happy Crafting!
