Valentines Box by Sharm

by Sharm Nidyanandan

Hello there crafty folks! In the spirit of Valentine's Day and all things sweetheart related :), I'd like to share with you a mini briefcase that holds all those sentimental, sweet little notes! This briefcase was assembled with a Silhouette cut file using the very dandy Doodlebug Designs Sweetheart Collection!

Being one that loves tonnes of layers, this project was nothing short of it. I first adhered some tickets on the top and further layered with a banner, a doodle pop & heart jewel. To add a touch of feminism to it, i added some washi tape along the top edge of the briefcase in a frilly manner. 

Doodlebug Products Used:

Patterned Paper: 4042 Bon Bons, 4052 Sugar, Sugar, 4049 Blushing Blossoms
Washi Tape: 4068 Endless Love 
Stickers: 3627 Valentines
Heart Jewels: 3607 Lily White
Ticket: 4053 Sweetheart Tickets
Doilies: 4065 Cupcake Doilies
Twine: 4067 Love Assortment
Fancy Frills: 4055 Sweetheart

Other Products:
Foam Tape, Silhouette Cut File

This is what the briefcase looks like closed. There's some layering on the top and some ruffled washi tape along the edges

That's it from me this time! Have fun crafting your perfect Valentine's Day memento!
