I've been published in Craft Stamper!

I have a special project to show you today. I made this quite a few months ago now for a display at The Hobby House and it was submitted for publication with Craft Stamper magazine. I'm so thrilled that it has been published on page 15 of the February issue!!! I covered the paper mache heart box with papers by Paper Salon, available from The Hobby House. They are so gorgeous and coordinate beautifully!
Around the edges of the top and bottom I stamped three different swirl stamps from the Whiff of Joy Spring swirls set with brushed cordoruy distress ink. I have added a gorgeous chocolate satin ribbon with a double bow and then added lots and lots of flowers from my stash, all sprayed with glimmer mist!
All the leaves were cut with doohickey dies from the various papers and nestled among the flowers.
The swirls are a doohickey die too.

I punched butterflies with different Martha Stewart punches to dot around the swirls. The small one is the corner butterfly punch from the PATP set.
The oval tag is from a die cut sheet that matches all the papers. I have stamped Sweet Wishes from Whiff of Joy with brushed cordoruy distress ink.
The box is fully decorated inside and out. This is the inside of the lid.
A peep inside the box, ready to be filled with goodies. I also made some paper cases to go inside but didn't photograph them!
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
