Prince Charming's Conversation Hearts

 
Today I’m going old school.  Pulling out the Cricut cartridges and creating a Valentine themed memory box for my husband.
To create the box I cut:
·         2 pieces of foam core board 9 "x 9" for the top and bottom of the box
·         4 pieces 1" x 8" for the sides of the box
·         1 piece that was 1.25" x 9" to use as the brace for the lid
I then covered the pieces with blue cardstock and on the inside I chose a valentine theme paper to use as my "accent". It was a double-sided print so I used one side for the lid and the other for the bottom of the box.
For the cover of my box I embossed two sheets of white and red paper with the Cuttlebug hearts folder and then created my background square. Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty were cut at 7" from Happily Ever After. I didn't care for the way the eyes and lips cut so I painted those in and added some red glitter to Beauty's lips.
 
 
For the conversation hearts I cut a fry box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  The hearts on the box are from Doodlecharms.  The large one I cut at 3” and the smaller ones I cut at 1”.
 
 
To make the "conversation hearts" I cut hearts from Happily Ever After.  These were cut at 3" and then inked. To get the verbiage on them I formatted text boxes the size I needed in Word, did a 'test' print and then placed a small amount of tape on the paper, placed the heart accordingly and then printed to add my verbiage. The font I chose is from dafont.com and is called fontdinerdotcom luveable.

And now I'm off to enter my project into the following challenges:
