Heart Box Altered Project

This is design team work I did for  This is their altered project kit for February!! I had such a fabulous time with this kit!! Here is the top outside of the box!

The first thing I did to the Maya Road Heart box was to glimmer mist it with Tattered Angels Scarlet Glimmer Mist.  I took the papers from the kit and punched out little scraps with a Postage Stamp punch. I layered the punch outs haphazardly around the border of the box.  Also the "Cherish" was included in the kit. I layered it with Gesso and then misted it with Tattered Angels Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist.  The next thing I did was cluster the roses and pin from the kit in the upper left corner.  Here is a close up of the flower cluster and pin and the Cherished Chipboard:

Here is a close up of the side of the box.  I placed the lace from the kit around the side of the top of the heart box.  For the bottom of the box, I cut 3/4" squares out of the different pattern papers and applied them in a quilt like pattern around the entire outside of the bottom of the box.

When you take the lid off of the box this is what it looks like:

And here is a closeup of the inside of the box:

Inside the box I cut some of the beautiful Authentique papers to fit in the bottom and then I created 2 mats for my photos.  I chose to include 2 of my favorite photos from our wedding.. They are the photos of us exchanging our rings.  I took a few more of the flowers from the kit and glued them to the bottom of the heart.  The stamp was  one that I had in my stash from Technique Tuesday.  I distressed the edge of the pp with the stamp on it with Vintage Pink Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.
