A Heart With Love...

    I found this heart shaped box at Target in the dollar bin and I could just hear it calling my name. "Please, alter me with some Ribbons and Glue"....pardon the pun....LOL.

Don't you just love this paper lace?   Suzanne, a fellow design team member of mine at The Paper Variety , posted a tutorial on how to make this faux paper lace.  

Check Suzy's tutorial out HERE!

     To alter this box, I cut a 4" heart from Gypsy Wanderings and adhered paper lace behind the heart and on the rim of the box.  

     I then added a cute gingham button tied with twine and a stamped sentiment banner "With Love"  from K. Andrew Designs  It's Valentines stamps.

Thanks for looking!
