Anniversary Heart Box

Hello all!  I have some VERY exciting news to share with you.  I have been chosen to be on the SVG Attic design team!  I love the files that they have!  There are so many diverse themes that you are sure to find something that you can use.  I make a lot of cards, but I also LOVE creating 3D paper items as well.  It is so fun seeing the item take shape and the finished product is so rewarding.

For my first design team project, I made an anniversary heart box for my husband.  We recently celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary!   This box is a wonderful reminder of our wedding colors and flowers.
The base of the heart box was made using the Heart Shaped Box collection from SVG Attic.  I kept the box simple by using solid colored cardstock, then added a vellum trim from Erin's Scalloped Trims around the top edge.
Next is the part that I just adore...those roses on top!  Seriously, I think they are the most gorgeous paper roses I have seen!  I cut them using the rose file from the Be Mine collection using double sided K&Company paper.  A perfect match of my favorite flower with my favorite color :)  For the leaves on the roses I used the apple leaves from the Fall Harvest Favor Boxes kit. I used brown chalk around the leaf edges, then creased them down the middle to make them look more realistic.  For the final touch, I added some pearls that were on a wired strand for a subtle bling.
But wait...there is more!  I also decorated the inside of the lid!  I added a cream heart layer, stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment, then added the rose and leaves.  An unexpected surprise when the box is opened :)  I just loved the end result and I think it would work beautifully for a wedding, bridal shower, anniversary, Valentine's day, birthday or even a just because gift.  There are so many possibilities for this box!
Ok...I just have to share one more picture of those amazing roses with you.  They have such a refreshing summer feel to them.  You know you like them too ;)
Now if you liked this box, you will want to go check out the SVG Attic blog.  This and so many other wonderful design team projects are there.  You are sure to find something that inspires your creative side!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
