Fancy Box and Lantern with the NEW Quick Quotes Mulberry collection
Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia here today. I created a project with this month's challenge: hearts. My project is an example of how you can use hearts anytime, not just for Valentine's Day. I used the new Mulberry Paper Pack. I just love the deep purple paper and I have said before how wonderful my Cricut cuts Quick Quotes paper. It is especially obvious on an intricate cut such as this box.
On the first box I created I used the yellow paper for the inside to simulate light. I dressed it up with all kinds of pearls and ribbon and a nice purple butterfly on top! Of course, I chalked all the edges with a matching Quick Quotes Powderpuff chalking ink. I also folded the top of the box "in" on this version.
On my second box, I used vellum for the inserts and placed a battery operated tea light inside to create a real lantern. I turned the top "out" on this one and punched holes in all four panels to create a hanger with the fiber. I also added pearls to this version.
Here it is all a glow!
