Birthday... How I Love Thee...

How I love thee... Let me count the ways... 

Today I am so excited to share a project I made...
A Paper Mache Heart Box... For a Birthday...

I usually share cards that I have made...
But I really do make many other things...
And today is the day I get to share 
an adorable creation... 

I made this adorable heart box...
It is from Pinque Peacock.
They carry an amazing range of awesome items.
From hand made flowers, felt poppers,
paper mache boxes, books, hearts & shapes,
pins, embossing folders and so many other things...

I painted the Paper Mache Heart Box with Metallic Pink Paint.
Covered the inside, outside, top & bottom with my paper.
With the Ice White Pearl Pen I decorated around the bottom edge of box (pictured here)...

This is the lid of box. I also used the Ice White Pearl Pen to add 3 rows to give the look of icing...

The Paper Mache Heart Box is so easy to paint & decorate. 
It is sturdy and held up extremely well to 2 coats of paint, glue and the pearl pen...

My Adorable Heart Box...

I really enjoyed working with the paper mache heart box. 
I must say I am surprised at how it easy it was to create with it.
The paper mache is sturdy and handles very well. 
It is an awesome find at a fantastic price.
