Little Boxes at Artful Times CH 49

Hello and I am feeling good today it has been a lovely spring day 
and me and the diamond have been out to the seaside for a lovely walk along the prom and then lunch 
I know I spoil him :) well it is his birthday today :)

Over at Artful Times they have all box mad and made some wonderful examples for us.
Now I just love decorating boxes so I couldn't pass this up hence 2 boxes

I  painted the heart shape box with gold inside and out 
then cut out the paper and distressed and inked the edge
sprayed the paper flowers to colour
and mounted on a simple black paper circle 
punched a tag and distressed the edges again
I wanted this box to be suitable for a man to pop his present inside :)

I then just had to go all girlie and covered the square box with this gorgeous paper 
inside and out, I then rubbed chalk ink around all the edges
added a die cut corner and a made flower.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving comments I very much appreciate it.

Hugs have a great week.

Hi Sandra and thanks for popping in to see me and leaving a sweet comment. I love both of your boxes but of course my favourite has to be the gorgeous girly one! Margie

They're both lovely, Sandra - gorgeous papers on the second, and I love the little flower trio on the heart shaped one.

I think the heart box is very nice but my fav is the second box, soft colours and pretty papers. Just so very pretty. A perfect choice.
