Today’s challenge hostess is Heather. Her challenge is to create something other then a card. I thought about it for a while and decided to try to create a heart shaped box. Since it was going to be a Valentine project, I thought Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Patterned paper.

I started by cutting two thin coasters with the largest  Classic Scalloped Heart die. I cut Neenah Classic White cardstock with the same die and one piece of Melissa Frances paper with the largest  Classic Heart Nestabilities The paper was sanded and stitched to one of the scalloped cardstock heart. The layers were adhered to one of the coaster hearts.

One of the sentiments from the new Heartlines stamp set was stamped in London Fog Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 3 die. The heart row from the same set was stamped underneath and Baby Pink Rhinestones were adhered in between each heart. Three Zva Creative Flowers were covered with Stardust Stickles were added  to the upper left side of the sentiment panel. The sentiment was adhered to the lower right of the heart with dimensionals and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were added to the upper left and right side of the tag.

Two 1 3/4″  wide strips of the Melissa Frances paper were adhered together. A 3/8″ line was scored on the long side of the strip and it was cut in about 5/8″ increments up to the score line. A smaller heart was cut out of a coaster and adhered to the bigger scalloped heart coaster, that had been covered with white cardstock. The paper strip was adhered around the smaller heart to form the walls for the box.  White Crochet Lace was adhered around the top of the strip.

I cut another heart the same size as the one that helped create the walls out of a coaster as well as out of more paper. The paper piece was sanded and adhered to the coaster heart. Two pieces of Crochet Lace were adhered to the bottom of the box top and the smaller heart was adhered over the lace ends. The other ends were adhered to the outside of the box so that the lid would stay on.
