A co-worker asked for a Valentine Milk Carton Box for her daughter. I just received my PaperTrey order and knew I wanted to use my new stamps on this box. I love the way this turned out and found it difficult to give away. LOL! Here's the link to Beate's tutorial on the box. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee...lk_carton_box/
My box is Real Red cs stamped with the smaller blossom from the Spiral Bouquet set by PaperTrey Ink. (It's a very pretty two-step stamping set.) I stamped the first part of the flower with White Craft Ink and then the second part of the flower with Basic Black. A dob of Crystal Stickles is in the center of each flower.
I stamped the heart from the Doodle That set with Basic Black ink onto Whisper White cs. It was punched out with my 1 1/4" circle punch, layered onto a 1 3/8" Real Red circle and again onto a Basic Black Scalloped Circle. I highlighted each scallop with a drop of Crystal Stickles. Each layer is separated with a Dimensional. I wrapped a band of white velvet ribbon around the box with Sticky Strip and adhered the heart layers with a bit more Sticky Strip. Finally, I filled in the heart with Crystal Stickles. Once dry, I colored in the little flower with my Real Red marker.
That's it. It's going to a teenager, so I hope she'll like it. TFL - Regina
