Flaunt It Fridays #6












Hi all! I think I am in the Valentine and Hello Kitty mood! :) I made this Valentine box for Flaunt It Fridays challenge this week which was the Hello Kitty in her plane. I made the box by cutting 2 scallop hearts from Twinlke Toes at 5 inches. I made a top and bottom box piece from a 4 in. square and 4 and 1/8 inch square and glued them to the top and bottom scallop hearts. I found a tutorial for the box here. I cut the pink heart out of Twinkle Toes at 4.75 inches and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder and inked white over the dots. HK was cut from HK Greetings at 2.75 inches and I added a white jem to the plane propeller using my I-rock and glossy accents for her nose and hair bow. The "be mine" was cut from Simply Charmed at 1.61 inches as well and the shadow. To finish I tied a ribbon at angle across the box.
I hope you all are having a great weekend!
