I got this little box of chocolates at the dollar store. Mr OP ate the candy. Although it wasn't too tasty, it was chocolate. I had ideas running through my mind when I bought it.
After tracing the shape of the box, I covered the front and back using a glue stick, scrapbook paper, and sheet music that I photocopied. Using a walnut colored ink pad I inked the edges, then did the same with a black ink pad.
I used vintage crepe paper and made ruffled edges for the bottom and top, cutting the top ruffle a little shorter, after the ruffle was attached. It's easy if you just run a bead of glue around the edge then sort of gather and push the crepe paper into the glue as you work your way around the heart.
Did you notice the title of the song? "In the Middle of a Kiss," perfect for Valentine's Day!
I fussy cut this sweet cherub and added some Diamond Stickels glitter glue for a little bit of shine.
I used a bit of lace from a vintage wedding veil, some vintage pink velvet ribbon, vintage rhinestones and a sweet white millinery flower that I plucked from a vintage hat. How many times can I use the word vintage in one sentence?
It turned out just the way that I envisioned.
A few of you asked if I made the crocheted heart a few posts ago. Unfortunately, I don't know how to crochet. I got it this past summer on one of our junqing trips.
On totally different topic, is anyone watching the new season of Dallas? I watched the entire season On Demand this past summer. It took me awhile to get into it, but really liked it. I didn't see the latest episode, but plan on catching it On Demand soon.
I think that this post is full of enough pink to share on Pink Saturday. Don't you?
