Hello Crafty Friends!!
Larissa here today to get you INSPIRED for Valentine’s Day!! There’s just over a Month left to get those SPECIAL LOVE Projects made, so I thought it would be FUN to show you how to use some of the NON-Valentine’s Day related items in you stash to create some SWEET Valentine’s Day Tags & Pillow Boxes!!
Let’s get Started!!
First I Die Cut my Pillow Boxes from some “Hello Valentine” Patterned Paper from Echo Park using the NEW Pillow Gift Box Die Set!! When I’m creating multiples, I like to create in assembly line style!! So I’ll Die Cut and Score ALL of the Pillow Boxes and Assemble them, then I’ll set them aside while I move on to the next Step!!
Next I Die Cut 4 Tags from the NEW Slimline Tags Die Set from some Chalkboard Patterned Paper!!
TIP: When I using Patterned Paper for Gift Tags that I’ll be Decorating, I like to Die Cut two and adhere them back to back for a more STURDY Gift Tag!! If you’re using Cardstock you can get away with just one Layer but I still prefer to Die Cut two and adhere them back to back!!
Then I Stamped and Embossed the Gift Tags using the NEW Holiday Tag Helper Stamp Set!! I Stamped the Front of the Tags with the “With Love” Sentiment using Versa Mark Ink and Embossed with WoW Bright White Embossing Powder!! Then I Stamped the To: & From: on the Back Tag using the same Ink and Powder!!
I decorated the Gift Tags with some BEAUTIFUL arrangements!! I think its FUN to use different Textures when creating Floral Arrangements and there are SO many options out there, but for todays Projects I’m using Glitter Paper and Felt!! SWOON!! I think the different textures really ADD to the Design!!
I Started by Die Cutting the Hearts using the Heart Die from the NEW Pillow Gift Box Die Set!! I Die Cut one from some Memory Box Glitter Paper and another from some Benzie Design Felt!! I LOVE the Pantone Color of the Year for 2022 Very Peri, so that’s where I started with my Color Palette!! Then I added some Foam Squares to the Back of the Hearts for some Dimension!! Next I Die Cut several Leaves and Flowers from the Wildflower Clippings Die Set!! SWOON!! This is one of my FAVORITE Trinity Stamps Die Sets, its so versatile!! You can use it all on its own to create STUNNING Designs, or air it with other Images/Dies to create one of a Kind Designs!! After Die Cutting the Images from some White Cardstock I used Copic Markers to Color them!!
Leaves: YG61 & YG67 Daisies: N0 Daisy Centers: Y11, Y15 & YR23 Bluebell: BG10, BG45 & BG49
Then I added some Fine Iridescent Glitter to Center and Stamen of the Daisy using a Glue Pen and finished off the Flower Centers with some Luminous Lemon Baubles using Zots Bling adhesive Dots to adhere them to the Flower Centers!! I adhered the Flower Arrangements together using the Hearts as the Center Focal and then adhered them to the Center of the Gift Tags using the Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension!!
I LOVE the Large Daisy with some Greenery to balance out the Design!! Then I added a White Silk Bow and adhered the Gift Tag to the Pillow Gift Box using more Zots Adhesive Dots!!
Now it’s ready to fill with a SPECIAL Treat or Gift for Valentine’s Day!!
I added a Bluebell Flower and a Few of the Mini Daisies with Greenery to finish off the Design!! Then I added a White Silk Bow and adhered the Gift Tag to the Pillow Gift Box using more Zots Adhesive Dots!! Now it’s ready to Fill with a SPECIAL Treat or Gift!!
I hope I’ve INSPIRED you today with these SWEET Valentine’s Day Tags & Pillow Boxes!!?? These would make ANY recipient SMILE, but they could also be used for other Occasions too!! Think Birthday’s, Anniversaries, Thinking of You or Get Well too!! When it comes to Flowers you can use them YEAR Round and the Color Combinations are ENDLESS too!! Personalize them to the Recipients liking or to what Scraps of Cardstock you may have on hand if Coloring isn’t your Jam!! I CAN’T WAIT to see what you create!!
