Funky Fairys Challenge #1

It's the first challenge this week over on Funky Fairys Challenge Blog and the theme is 'Valentines'. You can make a card or any other craft project as long as you use at least one item from Funky Fairys Papercrafts whether it was purchased from their shop or a free download.


I've made a 'Valentines' pillow box using the free download 'Loving It Simple' from Funky Fairy Inspirations. The wording is the 'Loved Themed Word Art' available from the Funky Fairys Shop. I cut the word art out using my square scalloped nesties and as there was a black lined box around the wording I went over theses with sakura stardust black and added more lines for a striped effect. I made the tag by cutting the hearts with the Fiskars shapecutter and layering them, punched a hole through top of heart threaded some black cord adding some beads and a little heart charm with jump rings. The three hearts to the other side were cut again using the shapecutter in the red paper from my scraps and matching paper to the pillow box from the download set.


Sorry about the shadow on the second picture, I just wanted to show the pillow box at a different angle.
