Heart Box Mini

Happy Tuesday friends :)  Today I have a fun little project that came to me in the middle of the night.  I often find myself thinking of craft ideas as I'm trying to go to sleep, which just keeps me awake!

Awhile back I did this post about Abie's Valentines for her class.  I had some of the boxes left over and I knew I could come up with a good use for them.

 Here's the outside of the box

 And the first page with a little pull tab to get it out of the box with.

 Here's a side view with all the layers!  It's like a leaning tower of lumpy hearty goodness!

 I pulled out all of my little pink embellishments ...

And went to town!

I used Valentine stamps,

 Lace and pearls,

 Punches and buttons,

 Anything that said Valentine to me!

 I mixed all different colors of pinks and reds, just whatever struck me at the moment.

To hold all the pages together, I made little tabs and wrapped them around each heart, adhering them as I went.  This is a side view of the "binding". 

This was just a fun little project, I didn't make it for anyone in particular.  That made it that much more fun! 

I hope you have a great Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by today :)
