Meljen's Designs Challenge #43

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Show some LOVE!!  Meljen's wants to see HEARTS on your projects this week!
That should be pretty easy, huh?

I made a cute little set that I'm mailing out to my Bestie for her birthday next week... ummm... I hope she doesn't read this!!!  Yes, I know it's a little "Lovey Dovey" for a friend, but who doesn't love their bestest friend??

 I started out making this little gift box that holds those cute little hand sanitizer bottles from Bath and Body works.  I saw this tutorial at Pink Buckaroo Designs around Halloween time and wanted to make some then, but I never got around to it.  Finally I had the time and mojo to put it together!  I struggled a tiny bit with the oval punch sizing to fit the bottle, but I ended up just "making it work", she'll probably have to tear the box apart to get the bottle out!  Although, knowing her, she'll never take it out!  She still has a popcorn gift that I made her YEARS ago, with the popcorn still in it!!

Then I thought that the cute little box needed a card to go with it, so I colored up another Meljen's image, popped up the x's and added more heart shaped rhinestones.  I followed the same "sketch" that I had used on the box, to make them match.

All of my papers are Basic Grey, Martha Stewart border punch and ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique at Etsy (go order some, it's amazing!  And tell her I sent ya!)
