Happy Valentine's Day! Heart candy box craft ~

Hope you are enjoying the day! Here is a little project that will use those candy boxes you might recieve today! It took me less than one hour and cost $2.37 for the scrapbook paper and die cut. The rest I had on hand.

I painted the red plastic with Folk Art "Spring Rose" to tone down the red. I traced the heart on scrapbook paper, cut out, inked the edges with Ranger Distress Ink (Vintage photo) and applied with a Double Stick Adhesive Duck tape roller. I also cut a long strip of different scrapbook paper, inked and applied (the lighter pink print). Then I cut some of the old 'lace' I found at the antique mall last weekend, using Aleene's Clear Gel tacky glue to hold it in place, because it dries clear. Added some felt ribbon off gift wrapping I received at Christmas. Painted a Heidi Swapp heart and glue on. Then added the 'Flirty Lil Girl Die Cut' bird.
Because of the paint, I won't be using food in my heart. I think it would be pretty in my bedroom or on any side table as decorations next Valentines.
I am OFF to Scott's Antique Mall this morning for a day of old stuff hunting! Enjoy your Valentine and remember to tell those that mean the most ~ you love them!
