Eileen Hull trinket box valentine – here is the key to my heart

hello everyone!

today i am here to show you a little project i created for a special someone for valentines

so i once again used the Trinket Box, one of my favourite Eileen Hull dies, to create this project
i started out by cutting my pieces out of black mat board. i then embossed the front and back covers using one of Eileens folders. once that was done, using my finger i applied some metallic paint to the raised bits.   it was then time to assemble the whole thing.

on the inside of the front cover i attached the hearts sheet with a red felt backing. i then glued the whole thing together using some foam tape.

i then assembled the box and attached ‘lock’ that i had painted with metallic paint

then it was just a matter of layering things to the top. i had used some oxide inks to paint the flowers and the ‘girls’, and added some chit chat stickers.

for the final touch i added a brad butterfly from Emerald Creek to the final flower.

but wait a minute…. look what happens when you pull on the ‘key lock’

yes that’s right.. it is actually a little drawer to hold a special note and  the key to my heart!

SOCKS!!! i love love love socks!!!!

well that’s it for today from me!! thanks for stopping by

until next time my friends,
