Kindergarten Project - Valentine Box

I mentioned in one of my previous posts that we were working on a Valentine Box for Ashley. The box is now complete. We started out by painting the "tote", both inside and outside, with 2 coats of acrylic paint (Delta - Fuchsia). After that was dried, I applied the gorgeous Bo Bunny papers. The metallic trim was added and then the doily. I covered the chipboard letters (Making Memories) with more Bo Bunny papers and then added ribbon (SU - Celery and Light Pink) to each letter, and affixed with dimensionals. I added the two flowers (Bazzil -Bitty Blossoms) with the heart rhinestones and then affixed the teeny tiny dot stickers (Stampendous - Dot Sparkler) on the doily. Those were hard to work with as they kept sticking underneath my fingernails, but they do add a nice touch. I was going to add a thick decorative ribbon trim for a handle and make this into a real tote, but decided against it as I figured the girls could put this in their room, and it is more practical not being a tote. Although Ashley didn't do a lot of actual work on this, she did pick out what papers to use and where, the style of chipboard letters to use, the ribbon, the flowers, and the rhinestones.

I'll bet she had the best one there! We were the only ones that handmade our Valentines, and one mom got snarky about "the one with glitter all over the place" not realizing that I was the mom that helped her little boy do that.

I set her straight. Tee hee. No chocolate for HER!
