Little Box of Love

This month For Love makes the world go round'  i wanted to make a tiny box for a valentine or other gift. I wanted it to Shout LOVE , so here is what i did...

 I began with a small oval shaped box and painted it with pinks and oranges for a mixed painted metallic look. 

I stamped a heart image on to a patterned piece of  pretty paper and then fussy cut it out.

I love using a stamp platform, its made all the difference to my stamping projects.Next I glued around the heart edges and added pink sparkly glitter for a cute outline

Finally I added some pink/beige flat back pearls all around the edges using larger ones at the bottom and smaller on the top. I made them more secure by using a strong glue for this.

Items used
