Vintage Heart Pocket Box

Hi everyone! I am back with a Valentine’s Day project that I created for ClearSnap! 

I started by placing the Matboard on top of the Heart Pocket Diecut only covering the whole heart…not the pocket. I cut two hearts from matboard and two hearts from patterned gold cardstock. I placed the matboard hearts, one at a time, in the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and run through diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Tutu Blends Ink and added water and painted both matboard hearts. 

Once both heart diecuts are dry I lightly inked over the embossed areas and edges of both hearts with Blush Pigment Ink and adhered patterned gold cardstock to the back of each matboard heart.

I placed patterned pink cardstock on top of the pocket of the Heart Pocket Diecut and ran through diecut machine. I adhered the tabs of the pocket diecut to the front of the embossed heart. Next I placed Adhesive Sheets on the front and back of a piece of matboard before placing patterned pink and gold cardstock on top of the matboard. I placed the covered matboard on top of the smaller “wall” of the Box, Make it 3D Diecut (retired) or you can use the walls/sides from the Bag, Coupon, Mini Shopping Diecut and cut two “walls”.

I folded the tabs of the “walls” and adhere to patterned gold sides of both hearts and glued gold trim around the walls.

I cut a paper doily in half and adhere to pocket along with lace to the edge of pocket and three buttons to the lace.

I cut a small heart from the matboard and from the Tiny Dots Creative Cards using the Heart Pocket Diecut. I adhered the Tiny Dots on top of the matboard and inked the edges with Petal Point Fluid Chalk Ink Pad: Soft Pastel-Rose Coral Chalk Ink and adhered to pocket.

Next I cut four flowers and leaf sprigs from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. I inked the glass tray with Melon Blends Ink, added water and laid all the flowers diecuts in the ink mixture. Once dry I added a drop of Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of flower and placed the other flower diecut on top and pinch and shape. I completed the same steps for smaller flower. I finished off the larger flower by adding a gem to the center and adhered to the corner of the small heart on the pocket. I inked the glass tray with Shamrock and Citronella Dyestress Blendables Dye Inks, added water and laid both leaf sprigs in ink mixture. Once dry I glued the sprig underneath the flower on pocket, added Tulle, pearl sprig and gold Ric Rac to corner of pocket. 

I added the smaller flower and one leaf from the leaf sprig to the bottom side of the heart and I added loops of gold thread underneath both flowers.

I punched a hole on both sides of the pocket and threaded 12 inches of seam binding through each hole, knotted and tie off on each side.

Now all you have to do is add candy for that special someone and tuck a small card in the pocket and it is ready to give as a gift and once it is empty it makes a nice wall hanging. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes: Weeks #372-#373
Crafter’s Castle: February Challenge #14

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is great and enjoy creating!
