Love is in the Air!

Greetings all my Valentine swooning crafty friends!  Go on and admit it, we all love the opportunity to create some swoon-a-licious projects for our loved ones!!!

Over at Imaginisce, the Design Team were assigned various love themed projects to focus on.  What fun!  My assignment was an altered/home decor project.  After pondering a few different ideas I thought it would be fun to do something girly and all for me for a change!

This project gave many of the Imaginisce tools a workout and it was too much fun!
  • This started out as a simple heart shaped wooden box for $1 at Michael's.  It's hinged and has a magnetic closure at the point.
  • I started with a base coat of red paint, then covered it using some papers from Little Cutie and the pink pattern paper on the bottom is from Garden Party. 
  • The d-stress was used to sand the edges and helped me finish that step so fast!
  • The musical overlay is a Hambly acetate sheet which I trimmed to fit and then modge podged over the top of my pattern Little Cutie paper with their glitter Modge Podge.
  • The i-rock got a work out making a decorative edge of hearts along the bottom of the entire box.  It took a little bit of time but the effect was so worth it!!! 
  • The i-bond was used to hot glue the trim and for assembling all florals. 
  • Roly rosies and pop up posies were used to create the floral focal point for the top, along with a cute little tag and the stamped "xoxo" sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Designs stamps. Love that sentiment!!! 
  • A bit of Smooch pearly pink was added to give some sheen and flair to the big bloom.  The smaller flowers on the side were created with MFT dies.
