As Valentines Day approaches, I'm hoping you will find yourself surrounded by the ones you love. I love this month and it shows in the projects we make for our friends and families, (and in some cases just ourselves). So...in keeping that in mind I'm showing you a couple more projects using some of the sweet all-in-one embellishment kits, and the first is a little gift box, the perfect way to package that sweet little gift for that someone special. The box uses the Polka Dot Valentines kit. It has everything you need to embellish the perfect gift box. To make the gift box, I simply painted a round paper-mache box with white acrylic paint, then distressed it. Then it's just a matter of adhering the ribbon, and all the other little goodies, the puffed polka dot heart, the rhinestones, and the lips and heart brads. I hope you enjoy!
And the second little project here is a "Love" wall hanging. I used the Vintage Poppies Kit, for this one and who doesn't love the sound of the word "Vintage Poppies"? I adore these sweet velvety flowers and their rich colors, and the floral gems are fast becoming one of my favorite embellishes. To make the wall hanging, I simply took 4 wooden miniature wooden plaques, added patterned paper, then added all the fun embellishments from the kit, used glittered letters, added a little misc pom-pom trim on the bottom, then wired them all together forming a wire hanger at the top. I hope you enjoy!
Have a wonderful week everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
Thankyou all so very much for stopping by today. For a quick little project, I made a "Home is where you hang your heart", wall plaque. To make this, I first used a pre-made wooden home then decopaged some papers to the top, cut out a scalloped roof line, added a rub-on then glittered the whole thing. Then to finish the home, I added a pom pom roof line, and a white wooden fence. After that grab your favorite Creative Charms embellishments like the red ribbon, to adhere around the entire plaque, some gradient jewels to add to the pom pom trim and the chimney, a little red puffy heart, and some of those sweet red Braided Daisies for the perfect touch. I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by. :)
