Crafty Fridays- Valentines Heart Gift Boxes

Here are some gorgeous heart gift boxes that I made last year created from store bought paper mache boxes:

For this gift box I used JO SONJA'S matte acrylic in Napthol Red Light along with red ribbon, topped with red ribbon roses

This one was created with  Kaiser colour acrylic in white and finished with red ribbon and red rhinestones

 Using Napthol Red Light again with heart patterned ribbon. Love it!

Using Kaiser colour in white, heart patterned ribbon topped with 3 ribbon roses

This one is my favourite I think. I used both the previous mentioned paints to create this box and then painted the wooden letters and stuck them on top of the lid for a bold effect for something different other that using flowers! I think it turned out quite well.

I had so much fun making these, I can't wait to make some more for Easter and Mothers Day and try out some other colour combinations and larger box sizes. These gift boxes are quite small in size, perfect to fit a couple of choccies in or some jewelery.
