Hello from the Heart!

A Warm HELLO to you this Friday! For my project today I created another wooden heart shaped box for my granddaughter. The yellow and pink heart box received a new sentiment too! Most likely these will be used for tooth fairy boxes. The boxes were purchased at Michaels.

JustRite's A Warm Hello Borders & Centers Set features 9 Centers & Borders and fits 1-5/8” & 2" Stampers, the centers also fit 2" Square Stampers. The heartfelt sentiments are perfect for my heart shaped boxes, no?

I coordinated stamps from JustRite's Charmed Cling Set for the heart lids. Oh the possibilities! Not enough hours in a day! sigh ;)

And the Custom Spellbinders Charms Dies (now shipping) are to die for! (Pun intended!) For my hearts today I utilized the two largest heart dies in this set.

I used the papers, ribbon and gems from The Stamp Simply Delovely kit pictured above! There is enough goodness here to get some serious crafting accomplished! These colors just make me happy! They are delovely for sure!

The button is from JoAnn Fabrics, and fits nicely atop the die top tab. Papers are adhered to boxes with ScorTape, then edges sanded.

Another angle to peek at! Martha Stewart inks are used for stamping and shading around the heart's edging.

I added some gingham ribbon and button from my button stash. The yellow trim is added as well, I'm sorry it is so old, I cannot remember where this trim is from! Any small trim that coordinates with your papers could work. There you have it! Two heart shaped boxes for those precious granddaughters of mine! As you probably can tell I adore making items for them and always with heartfelt love!
