Love Hearts gift box

img_20170206_142356

So continuing the Valentines Day theme today I have made this really lovely ‘Love Hearts’ sweets gift box.

These sweets are one of my childhood favorites and are a perfect little gift to give to someone.

I made this box to fit 4 tubes of Love Hearts perfectly and I think it turned out pretty well.

I got the idea when I purchased last months ‘Stamping’ magazine which had this lovely ‘Truly Scrumptious’ themed stamp set.

There are loads of wonderful stamps to use and the ideas in the magazine are great too.

I used the Love Heart stamps as featured above and coloured them in with the closest matching colours from my Spectrum Aqua pens.

Here’s a short video showing the paper I made.

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of
    your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
    issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
