Started my Valentine crafting
I hunt for empty used heart shaped candy boxes throughout the year at thrift stores. Then I do a bit of collage work on the lids and sell them on etsy and in my booth at the antique mall. These two are the smaller size heart shaped boxes.
First I covered the lid with vintage sheet music, then a red metallic paper doily, then a tea stained white paper doily, then this ready made heart tag. There’s no real method or system to what I layer on top, or when. I just ‘play around’ with the assorted papers that I have and select what I think works best.
Trying to decided whether or not I need to ‘pretty up’ the side of the box too. What do you think? Is just decorating the top enough? Or should the sides be done too? Maybe just the vintage sheet music on the sides?
