Altered box -Valentines


First of all I want to thank all of you who left such sweet comments on my blog, it has inspired me greatly to create more. I always make a special effort to visit all of you and be sure to comment.

Today I am showing you an altered box, it was once a Peter Puck candy box like the Life Savor boxes you get at Christmas time for a stocking stuffer.

Also I received my Peachy Keen stamps last week and couldn't wait to try them out...I used them on the hearts that I stamped and cut out... I loveeeeeee them!!!! You can find these stamps over at

PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment

I am entering this project into
The Dream Valley Challenge over at http://dreamvalleychallenges.blogspot.com/
There are so many creative projects, be sure to check them out for there is no shortage of inspiration there!

To know what techniques I used, read below each image

Now for my project

On the front I add the cutest little lamb that I cut out using a Sizzix Side Kick that accompanies the Cuttle bug. The flowers were made by using my flower punches, I punched them out of worded distressed paper, I curled the edges with a tooth pick and added a vintage button. The background was made with white card stock and inked over with Tim Holtz's distress ink pad ( Antique Linen) with a sponge dauber.

As you can see I used stickles on my lamb to create a more 3D effect , I also added the punched out heart and bow.

Here you can see the expressions used on my hearts from Peechy Keen Stamps! To order these go to the link mentioned above.

Here you can see the opening where I have put cinnamon heart candy as an added touch.

Hope you are inspired!

This little treat box is adorable, as is that cute lamb! You did a great job putting this together and I can imagine that similar boxes will be enjoyed by a couple of kiddos on Valentine's Day this year.
