KURETAKE: Be Mine Heart Box

With Valentine's Day being around the corner, I thought I would share a KURETAKE ZIG® project using one of their box templates. It is also featured on KURETAKE ZIG Blog post today! Last time I showed this heart box template, I made a place setting that resembled a turkey! LOL!! This time I thought it would be appropriate to use as it is intended for (well, one of the themes - lol!!)...

Be Mine Heart Box by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - KURETAKE ZIG: Gift Box Template Heart, ZIG Brushable Marker (Spring Green), ZIG Fine & Chisel Marker (Pure Red)  and ZIG 2-Way Glue Chisel Tip; Patterned Papers - Authentique Paper (Lovely Collection); Stamp: JustRite PaperCraft (Ooh La La French Frill set); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-145 French Frills and S5-086 Bitty Blossoms); Black Rhinestones: Want2Scraps

First I traced Gift Box Template Heart with a pencil, cut the edges and scored along with the lines in the template. Then I assembled and adhered with ZIG 2-Way Glue Chisel Tip. After it dried, I used ZIG Fine & Chisel Marker (Pure Red) to outline the edges of the box.


Next I inked my image from JustRite® PaperCraft's Ooh La La French Frill stamp set with ZIG Brushable Marker (Spring Green) and stamped on to white background on the flip side of my patterned paper. Then cut/embossed with its matching die shape, S5-145/JBS5145 French Frills tag die. With my ZIG Fine & Chisel Marker (Pure Red) marker, I wrote "Be Mine."


After I cut/embossed my Bitty Blossom die and rolled the blossom, I assembled all my embellishment onto the box front. Now I need to add my...er, his favorite candy and I'm good to give away!


Here's a second look at the box :)
