I love my newly revamped old Valentine boxes...this one has the sweetest valentine of a pussy cat.
I want to show you how easy it is to do it yourself!
Here are my ugly boxes....a pink one from goodwill...$1.
There was dirt and marks on it....making it sort of sad looking.
And this one is alright...but just advertises Russel Stovers.
I gathered up supplies...like my party streamers.
I LOVE party streamers because they are usually dirt cheap at thrift stores and are easy to work with.
I just took my white party streamer and started gathering it up with my fingers and pressing it down to keep the gathered shape.
I then started hot gluing it to the edges...making it evenly hanging over the edge a bit.
I started at the top middle point of the heart.
Lucky was helping ...like a good tabby cat.
He put his paw on things I should try next...no kidding...he is amazing.
I kept going around in layers.
When going around curves...just tuck to go around.
I wanted another color to be added.
It was addicting to keep on going.
I love the sweetness of it...reminds me of Marie Antoinette.
While I was working on this....I took my old valentine ...glued it onto cardstock and then added glitter. I let it dry.
This is the kitty valentine I used.
I covered it up alot.
All these pics were taking while watching tv...so I am sorry the pictures are a little crazy and dark.
I also covered up the little red box.
I added white too.
I glued the kitty valentine on the center....glued ribbons under it (with a heart button) and added a few stickers.
I put a dog valentine on this one.
They are sooo cute and corny at the same time!
Now my boxes are not sad...
I can proudly put them out and enjoy.
Here is my last tip:
Don't put party streamers in the sunshine...they will fade...
but maybe you want it to fade? It would look vintage if it was faded....lol.
Have an amazing day!
