Box of love and a finished wall or two!

Hello there!  Happy middle of the week to you!  I was putzing around in my stamp room this morning and felt inspired to make a little box that I could fill with love!  I grabbed some happy Valentine's Day colors and whipped up this little guy:

It uses one sheet of 8.5 x 11 card stock!  I stamped it with that adorable heart from Language of Love before assembling it.  I made the little skirt with the fun new fringe Scissors in the Occasions catalog and added a bow and a button! (Because what better way to dress up a Valentine's Day box that you are going to fill with love?!)

The heart is attached with a dimensional, but the ribbon and button are all just glued right onto the box!

I made the matte for this heart by punching out two hearts and cutting one in half.  I adhered the two pieces to the sides first and then added the whole one to the top to get this look!  Cute, cute, cute!  

I used the Label Bracket punch to create the top of the box.  I just barely put the paper into it and punched a tiny sliver and then worked my way around the whole box.  I sponged it pretty good to make it stand out!

Now all that is left is to fill it with some chocolate love and give it away! :) 

The details:
Stamps: Language of Love
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Blushing Bride and Whisper White
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar and Chocolate Chip
Punches and Dies: Large Heart and Label Bracket
Extras: Dimensionals and sponges

On a completely different note, I have a couple of photos to share to show where I have been spending all of my free minutes!  Finishing sheet rock has to be one of the most hateful jobs ever, but I am ecstatic to say that the sheet rock is now done in room one!!!!!!!!!!!  

Several rooms to go, but we won't talk (or even think about that!!) right now! LOL
Ok, I am off to work on our never ending addition!  Today there will be paint! LOL  Have a great day!
