Time for some more Valentine inspiration from ScrapScene readers! Thank you everyone who has sent in a project. We still have lots to show you!
Christy Hoover made this pretty vintage looking Valentine box (see photos below). Christy tells us the following about her project, "This wooden box features everything romantic: pearls, flowers, a doily, cupid, and much more. Fill it up with chocolate and it’ll be a perfect gift! The box was first painted in gold metallic paint. I added patterned paper and a crocheted doily and embellished the top. The embellishment on the top is made from a resin frame (Melissa Francis), a vintage-inspired cupid, a spun-glass halo (found at www.blumchen.com ) a string of pearls, a valentine dresden greeting, glitter, and flowers to add dimension." You can see this Valentine box for sale in Christy’s Etsy shop here.
Teresa Schumacher came up with her idea for a mini Valentine book after reading a blog about recycling. Teresa tells us that she "decided to reuse the gift cards I had received from Christmas. I already had enough, however the good news is if you don’t (have any) these are free from most stores…." Teresa also says she was inspired by the new K & Co papers. "Its great because I already have one gift down for my supportive fiance who beams when he gets gifts like this…. Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it." You can see full project details here on Teresa’s blog.
Fleur Smith made this altered tin for her two sons. See photos below. Inside is an X’s and O’s game! Fleur tells us she "saw a similar idea using snowflakes and thought it would be perfect for Valentines Day!" To make her project, she used products from the Pink Paislee Sweetcakes collection and stamps from Hero Arts Whoo Loves You collection.
Take a look at this bowl that Jen Martakis altered for the Creative Memories blog. Love how she made the 3D paper balls inside as well. This would make a great decorative centrepiece for a romantic dinner for two! To see more photos and read about how Jen made this project, please click here.
