My Valentine gift box

As I said in previous post before we are going to move to Loaded Envelope itself I would like to explore My Valentine gift box
This part of the project wasn't recorded, but I did briefly go over each element in the video
The heart shape box itself came for the digital kit called "My Valentine" from KSP with Luisa (it is third from the left in first row image, which you can print of 8.5 by 11 inch paper at home).

with the image of the heart shape box you will be printing a bow that you can assemble and use on the box itself or in any part of your project (designer thought out details of this collection: no wasted space & universal usage even though it has a valentine's day elements)
Plus this collection has heart shape greeting cards (third from the left in second row image) and unique envelopes (look under words "My Valentine") that fit into out hear shape box and can hold those greeting cards...
How unique and handy is that??? Very clever!!!!
So I took an advantage of those smarticle elements of the collection and used those

I printed out three envelopes:
- one is holding decorative tags ( that also come as separate sheet from this digital collection)
 I created a belly band using NSK cotton lace and topped it with Recollections decorative flower

- the other two envelopes I decorated with a doily layover and a hand made bow
inside I put cut outs from this digital collection 
But there are few more elements in this Valentine Gift Box
I took two clear Project Life envelopes/files with gold printed inserts and connected those with tussle from my stash and woven heart embellishment that I will be talking in details in the future posts

 Mean while I took two paper doilies and cut outs of pre printed sweet treat images and came up with
Decorated doilies embellishments:
Here is the first doily... I used image of ice- cream cone on the background; cupcake is on the pop up dot; I tucked mesh tulle under cupcake
 on top of the cupcake image I places word "enjoy" from Project Life collection and tiny ribbon bow
 so, altered doily goes inside the sleeve, just like that....
 on the back I decided to decorate doily with gold die cut (from my stash) & another chocolate appetizer....
 Chocolate is our friend.....

and because the chocolate is an EPIC treat I used that gold stenciled file/insert (which came with clear PL files)... I am already getting hungry - ARE YOU?

 But wait, its not it yet...
I made another altered doily... Which is yummy as well

 Isn't it so French? Macaroons and stuff.... LOL Of course "bonjour" is the word I would insert
Here few more pictures of both elements connected by tussle

and woven heart

And so it is, and such its done and loaded into My Valentine gift box....
But wait, Its topped with ice cream....
 0 calories, no sugar or gluten, none GMO.... I will take my time to share with you a recipe for that one later on.....
Hugs and Kisses,
