Happy New Year! I hope it has started out well for all of you. Once again thanks for all the comments about my favorite templates I made last year. They really mean a lot to me! Today I went back to look at the resolutions I made last year and discovered most of them didn't happen but some of them were out of my control so this year I have decided I am not going to make any and just see what transpires. I have decided not to do a video every month anymore. I have been doing them for 2 years now and have started running out of techniques that have not been done before. I will continue to make videos when I have something new to share though. Emilia and I also plan on continuing our cupcake posts, we have decided that we are not going to limit ourselves to just the recipes in the book though.
Today I am sharing my first Valentines project of the year with you. I started it last week for a challenge on Papercraft Planet but did not get it done in time. I finally finished it the other day though so now I can share it with you.
I started with Lauren Meader's Free Cutesy Cover template which I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. Next I added the mat pieces using a sheet of digi paper from this paper pack. After that I sewed them on with my sewing machine. When I was done with that I cut the doily using this SVG file then I cut a felt heart using the Nestabilities heart dies and added a small circle. Finally I added another small heart from the Love Lives Here Die and a tiny pearl. To finish it off I added a piece of Raspberry Fizz Satin ribbon that I tied in a bow. I also added a piece of Velcro on the inside flap to keep it closed. These little boxes would be great to hold gift cards, jewelery, or even candy. A small box of conversation hearts fits perfectly.
That's it for now. I hope to be back soon with more to share. Until then thanks for stopping by and I hope your first week of 2011 is a great one!
