Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style-Red Hot Ribbon!

Repurposed Heart Candy Box
Hard to believe this heart is a repurposed candy box!  Yes, really it is!  Isn't it beautiful? This was another idea I saw over on Pinterest! Using bloomers of any color would work, but today is our Stamp Simply red hot ribbon inspiration! The gorgeous Red Velvet Ribbon adds that perfect touch too! It is 3/8" and comes in 12 rich colors!  The awesome green leaves are called mulberry rose leaves and are available at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store HERE


Heart Candy Box-Before Embellishment
This is what I started with!  I spread a layer of Aleene's Tacky Glue (bought at Michaels) on the entire lid. Starting at the heart bottom point, I attached the bloomers row by row, until the lid was fully covered!  The sentiment is from JustRite's Winter Words Clear Stamp Set. I just went to The Stamp Simply Store to link the set and saw it's on sale! Great shopping news!  Happy Valentine's Day is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink found HERE.

Hi Barb~

I have loved those blooms in ribbon since I first saw them...and now you have really encouraged me to get them! I just love the idea of recycling objects...and this one came out beautifully! I love all of the texture in this project. And, there are so many ideas of what could go in this special box now!

Thank you for entering me in the amazing collection being given away!

He IS Able!

OMG! Absolutely LOVE how you re-purposed that candy box. The bloomers are gorgeous, and I'm going to have to try this. (Much easier starting with a heart-shaped candy box rather than having to make the box.)
