Valentine Gable Box!

Top of the Tuesday morning to you!!!

It's my day to post over on the Jaded Blossom blog and I have a cute gable box to share using a technique that I have never tried before - stamping on canvas.

I took a kraft gable box from Annie's Paper Boutique and cut a red canvas sheet to make some panels for the sides. Before adhering them, I used some Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped on the design to the canvas using the new JB Heart Splatters stamp set. I then took the JB Luggage Tag Dies and cut the back layer using a sheet of kraft paper and cut the top layer using the red canvas again. I took another stamp from the same JB Heart Splatters stamp set and again stamped a background. Then I stamped the heart from the same set onto another piece of kraft paper and fussy cut around it. I adhered it to the tag with pop dots. The love sentiment was die cut from the new JB Alphabet Dies and glued on to finish off the tag and then it was tied to the top of the box. I also added a sentiment to the box using the JB Simple Sayings Valentine Edition stamps. This is a great box to stuff with chocolate treats or a small gift. And I am so glad that the stamping on canvas was a success for me. Yeah!!! I really like how it turned out.
