Valentine Box #2

This is the top of the box that I altered. This paper is from the K and Co. line of Kelly Panacci. I LOVE this paper!! So adorable and sweet. I used an envelope box again, covered it with the paper, added a strip of crocheted lace at the bottom and the top, some silk roses and leaves, string of pearls woven throughout the roses and then used one of the larger die cuts from the Bo Bunny Smoochable line inked the edges with brown dye ink, added the saying strip with red brads and made it so it came up just a bit like a handle.
Also, the brads were too red and garish looking to go with this line so I inked them up with the same brown dye ink as I did the edges of the die cut in and it was just enough to give it a darker red look to match a bit better and not stand out so starkly.

The front of the box I used a wooden button with a wooden bead topped with a pink flower button and hot glued it all together to make a faux drawer pull. The dimensional sticker on the front is from Anna Griffin. Isn't it wonderful how well all the die cuts and papers went together even though they aren't from the same companies???

This is the right side and more Anna Griffin dimensional stickers. The edge of the box was done with a red/pink distressed paper from the K and Co. line then I used a border punch around the entire edge.

This is the left side of the box, Anna Griffin dimensional stickers.

Closeup of the roses. They kinda look peach here but they are pink in real life. The darker ones are a deep burgundy.

This is the inside of the box. I made the top into a hinged lid just for something different. So now the "faux" drawer pull on the front is actually not faux after all!!
