Anything Goes challenge - Love You box......

Good morning everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge over at 

The challenge.....#3 Anything Goes!

Use any digi from My Artistic Adventures Etsy 
and create anything your heart desires...tags, boxes, cards, etc...
(sorry, no digital entries)

I made this mini matchbox.....


I started with a matchbox that I cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
To cover the matchbox I printed one of the Vintage Music Large Tags and cut it to fit the all the sides of the box then went around all the edges with some glitter (Challis) from Art Glitter 

To the top of the box I added mesh ribbon and a bit of crochet lace.

I then, printed a couple of the Romantic Focals Cupid Text box red hearts.
I trimmed one of the hearts to fit on top of the box, over the ribbons.
I added Wild Rose glitter, also from Art Glitter, around the edges of the heart.

Below you can see the box opened with a small tag I made using a small tag from the 
I added the same mesh and crochet ribbon to the tag and added one of the 
Conversation Hearts Image Card Bases hearts with Wild Rose glitter with a couple of little leaves tucked underneath. 
The bows on the top of the box and on the tag were made with my favorite new toy, my Bow-it-All.
Under the bows I added a couple of pearl trim pieces from my stash.

On top of the heart, the sentiment boxes are from the 
Romantic Roses Birds collage set 
and the little rose is from my stash.


I cut up a couple of the red hearts to cover the edges and inside of the drawer piece of the box.


Above you can see that I added a bit of ribbon for a little handle to open the box.
Below you can see I tucked that ribbon in under the paper that I laid inside the box.
