I am aware I am still behind in my posts re letters, cards and postcards. Life has been well life. So they will have to wait for another day. (though they are on my to do list so hoping I can get stuck in soon or at least catch up a few at a time)
However after 2 months of working my behind off on these wee 2″ square boxes and finally completing them I wanted to share them with you all, and also to let you know I had not abandoned my project just shifted it a little to make it more me rather than just writing or just creating I have chosen to combine both. And I will also be posting this blog on my craft blog where I have shared some of the pics of cards and postcards I have created for my project.
Anyway here is the finished box:
the box before it was wrapped with a good view of the Heart cushions that were hand cut out, hand sewn and hand stuffed actually the 23 of these took me a rather long time to complete and I am sure between them and the other things I made more than warrent 2 months project time.
the 2″ square boxes I made from scratch:
the 1″ Paper Bags made from one of My fav MFT Dies
The Love albums that I had to fight with my cuttlebug to cut out (both the letters and album are quickutz)
The boxes ready to be wrapped:
and all finished with a Tim Holtz butterfly die cut and a pretty mulberry rosebud
They also include a turkish delight easter egg as its easter, and some have a small turquoise heart bead in them.
It was a lot of work to get these done, when I thought oooh a box of love for valentines day I had no idea it would take me so long to get them done.
I have to say though that I am really happy they are now complete just have to print a little label for them to say what they are about and give them away 🙂
