This is a sweet and fun little project for that very special person in your life (like your lovely mom, grandma, friend, well basically anyone important to you), that you want to tell how treasured they are in a very personal way!
First, we will decorate the cute heart shaped boxes. Next we’ll fill them with notes, on which you’ll write down why your dearest is this fun, charming and beautiful.
It’ s a perfect diy to do with your kids too: smiles all around, I guarantee, especially from the person this treasure box is made for!
Things you will need:
* Heart shaped little boxes
* colored paper
* scotch tape
* fabric or washi (pimp) tape
* scissors (plus some buttons and glue for the button box)
Roll them up, and secure them with a small piece of scotch tape.
This is the time to start using the decorative tape. As you can see in my photos, there are several ways to do this. For two of my boxes I cut small strips from one roll of tape, and used them to decorate, in combination with another kind of tape.
On to the lid: after you’ve taped each strip to the lid, you’ll cut away the leftover tape with a sharp pair of scissors: the edge is your guideline.
