Good morning and happy Monday to you!
Today is Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party! The challenge this month is to create a Valentine's Day themed project.
I decided to create a coffee cup box to hold candy in that I can give to one of the gals at work.
I started with the coffee cup that was cut using my Silhouette.
(I will have to link later, as my Webroot Antivirus found a threat on the Silhouette site?)
I embellished it using this sweet heart image from Crafty Secrets. It is part of the Digital Heart to Heart Collection. I added a bit of ribbon, leaves, and a flower to finish it off.
And since I have no self control around chocolate, I had nothing to put in the box. ;)
Here's how I put my treat box together. (Minus the treats!) LOL!
I printed my designer paper from the Vintage Valentine collection. (The pink and blue was used for my flower for some subtle variances in color)
I gave the heart a bit of color with my Copic markers. On the second heart I colored the bird's nest and cut it out.
I popped it up using dimensional foam circles. I added glossy accents to the eggs. I decided after this picture was taken to sprinkle it with glitter. I couldn't resist the sight of glittery eggs!
To "ground" my image to the cup, I glued a doily to the front.
Then I stacked a Spellbinder's oval shape and the heart using dimensional foam circles.
I created my bow....
Then I decided to add a few feathers for a soft wispy look. After all it is a bird image right? ( Yes, I can be quite literal!)
I wanted to add a flower and some leaves. This is how I give the petals and leaves some dimension and shape.
My finished flower.
And here it is one more time all put together! :)
