Hello Everyone 🙂

Today it is me, Silje Kristin who stop by with some new inspiration for you 🙂

Today I thought I would show you a Heart Box, made with some lovely paper from Maja Design <3

This box that you see in the picture, was a large red box that I got in a Christmas present. I am very found of recycle or upcycle diferent boxes that I received or may have been a old packaging for something. And this project here is no exeption.

I have used pattern sheets from Vintage summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics.



I have decorated the bottom and the lid with two different patterned paper, where the patterned paper on the bottom is the darkest, while the lid is in a lighter color.

All the edges are inked with Distress Ink – Ground Espress, before I used a silver chain with shiny diamonds. This chain is very easy to attach with glue.

The heart that is on the top is made based on the shape of the box itself.

Here i have selected one pattern sheets that have both colors of the pattern sheets I’ve used on the box.

On the tof of the heart i have used several different flowers, most of the flowers are from Wild Orchids, while some of the flowers are from Papirdesign.

In between the flowers are a large button with a bow, pearls and two large silver leaf.

I have tried to place the flowers and the other details, as a heart on the top of the box <3

If you open the box and turn the bottom of the box up,  you can see that I have used a pearl string, now thw box have something to stand on.
