Lisa Falduto swinging by with a fun Valentine project for you to create! There is nothing more enjoyable than adding a personal touch to the box of Valentine candy you purchase in the store. While some boxes can be very lavish and beautiful in their design, they come at quite a hefty price. Instead of paying for that beautiful decor I decided to purchase a less costly box and make it lavish and beautiful using my Cricut Imagine, Cricut Expression, and Cricut Craft Room!
First, I traced the box outline on a 12×12 printed sheet of paper from my Cricut Imagine and Cricut Imagine More cartridge. Then I trimmed it down to fit on the front of the box leaving some red border.
Next, I took some black sequin trim and covered the area where the paper meets the box to give it definition and sparkle. After that I created my cuts from the Victorian Romance and Flower Shoppe cartridges and added them to the center area.
My finishing touches include some pink lace, gem flourishes, ribbon, and a sparkly gem center for my flower.
So what are you waiting for? Grab that box of candy and start cutting! This may be the most creative Valentine’s Day yet!
