I started with an 18oz. empty oatmeal container.
Cut a 6 5/8"x12" piece of pink card stock.
Wrap around the container and adhere. There will be a small gap but we'll be covering that up next.
Cut a 1 1/2"x6 3/4" strip of black dot paper to adhere and cover the gap. This will be the front.
Cut another strip from the same paper measuring 2 1/2"x6 3/4" and adhere it on the opposite side of where the previous strip was placed.
Here I tried to show how the two strips are positioned opposite of each other.
Cut a 3 1/4"x9" strip of white dot paper - use a border punch on both ends before adhering centered over the smaller strip that is on the front.
Thread some ribbon through holes made with the border punch and tie a bow.
Adhere sticker letters to spell "LOVE NOTES" centered on front. Outline with black gel pen to define them. Add some stitching with a white gel pen.
Using the Art Philosophy cartridge, cut various shapes and stamp with the "Mad About You" stamp set from CTMH. I put brads from the CRD kit in 3 of the shapes.
Cut a 3 1/2" circle - (I used George and Basic Shapes) - to put on the lid. I cut it out of pink glitter paper.
Cut a 2" scalloped rectangle from Art Philosophy to mount on the matching chipboard shape in the CTMH bundle. Stamp Happy Valentine's Day and adhere two gems from the kit. Embellish with a black gel pen.
Mount label on the lid and do some stitching with a black gel pen.
Add embellishments! I used pop dots for some of them.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to make time to make something beautiful today! :-)
