I love tea! I visit spots such as Teavana just to look at the beautiful tea pots and to smell the aroma of their flavorful collection of loose teas. I used this experience as my inspiration for my first project, a heart shaped gift box.
I loved this heart shaped keepsake box from Maya Road the first time I laid eyes on it! The beautiful sheer window allows the recipient to get a glimpse of the gift inside. I can just imagine a collection of gourmet teas and an elegant English tea strainer tucked inside.
I started by covering the lower half of the gift box with beautiful pink music note paper from Making Memories. I painted the lid white and added black pearls while the paint was still wet. Once the lid was dry, I trimmed it with ruffled fabric trim from Pink Paislee. I also trimmed the outer rim with soft pink roping. Next up, flowers, flowers, flowers! What would a gift box be without them! I finished my design with a beautiful swag from Melissa Frances.
