Now for a cute Valentine box.  This vintage box was designed by Frances for our stamp camp.  Isn't it pretty?  This is one of Stampin' Up!'s Kraft Boxes covered with squares of Beau Chateau DSP, with a piece of 1/4" Early Expresso grosgrain ribbon tied around it.   We used a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim tied in a knot around the Early Expresso.  To finish it off we made a flower for the top out of Beau Chateau, Pretty in Pink and First Edition Specialty Paper punched with the Fancy Flower punch.  To make the flower punch 2 of each color/ print of paper, crumple each flower into a tight ball, open it enough to punch a small hole in the middle ( you can use 1/16" circle handheld punch or the punch from your punch pack)  Attach all of the layers together with a brad and smash it together and arrange it until you like the look of your flower.  Tip:  you can work your piece of paper by crumpling it and straightening it a number of times then put it through a crimper 5 or 6 times until it is distressed and the edges begin to split.  Pull the layers apart and you will have 2 faux suede flowers ( use the inside pieces from the split to the outside for the suede look)  Do this with all of your flower pieces and your flower will look softer and fuller.




Hope you enjoy making your box and please contact me with any questions.

Thanks for stopping by,
