This week at SweetSassyDiva's the theme is "Not a Card or Layout" so I decided to finish a project I started earlier. I saw something similar several months back and created a file in my Gypsy right away (so I did not forget) and never even did a test cut! I was thinking this would be cute for Valentine's Day.
I started with this box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and welded this layer of an ornament from Christmas. The box is sized at 10.90w x 6.88h and the layer of an ornament is sized at 4.81w x 29.12h.
On a side note, the layer of the ornament can be used as a wine bottle tag!
I cut out my box in red card stock.
I scored and creased on the fold marks and used my ATG to adhere it together.
I found an image from my Holiday Vignettes program and printed it out on white cardstock. I cut it out.
I had to guess at the size of the image and it turned out pretty well!
I wanted to put a doily behind the image, so I opened up Lacy Labels and found an oval shaped doily. I rotated it 90 degrees and sized it to fit the front of the box (4.91w x 3.47h).
I grabbed the "XOXO" from Sentimentals and sized it to 2.74w x 1.12h.
I cut both out of cream colored card stock.
I inked them both with Antique Linen ink to age them.
I wrapped some wide brown ribbon around the middle of the box and adhered the doily to the box. I pop-dotted the image to the doily. Now I just have to wait for my Valentines to be delivered!!!
