Valentine Tag & Treat Box
GlueArts Designer: Linda Albrecht

Glue Arts Accent It All Vinyl-white
Patterned Papers- My Minds Eye
Trinket Pins- Maya Road
Rhinestones- Melissa Frances
Die Cuts- AccuCut & Provo Craft
Wood box- Michael's
Lace & Ric Rac trim
Cotton string
Mini clothespin
Paper heart doily

1. Cover treat box with paper using Perma Tac Adhesive, distress edges with sandpaper and brown inkpad.
2. Cut embellishments from paper and from U Cut It Foam. I like to apply paper directly to one side of the foam (slightly bigger than the pieces that I am cutting) so there is no room to apply the die cut paper incorrectly... especially with a shape that is scalloped or intricate, because the foam sticks like crazy! There is no taking it off to line up the edges better once you place it on the foam-- and that's a good thing, right? :-)

3. For the tiny flowers cut from the foam, remove one side of the backing and apply glitter to the sticky side. Remove other side backing as you apply them to your project.

Box embellishment
4. Cut "doily" from white Accent It All Vinyl and adhere to the box front then apply foam to the backside of a tag and place on top of vinyl doily.
5. Apply lace and trims with Ribbon Adhesive then wrap string around box and through the hole on tag then tie at the side.

6. Apply remaining die cut pieces, add a rhinestone to each flower, stick a trinket pin into the foam behind die cut, add a mini clothespin to the tag and clip on sentiment.

Tag Instructions

7. Cut tag from patterned paper. Fold a paper heart doily around the left side of the tag, but do not glue in place.
8. Cut a heart "card" from patterned paper that will fit over the top of the paper heart doily and sew machine stitches to the front. Apply Perma Tac adhesive to the left inside on the patterned paper heart card then stick the doily to the card.

9. Use Perma Tac to adhere the back side of the paper heart to the back side of the tag.
10. Add trims and foam cut embellishments to the center of the heart on the tag.

11. Stick trinket pins into the foam embellishments and add rhinestones to the foam flowers. Tie a fabirc bow at the top of the tag.

1). Using your Glue Glider handle with Extreme Tac cartridge, adhere paper to letters. Trim off excess. I left the back and sides bare.

2). Stamp all your images that you plan to cut out. Cutting them out with a kraft knife and inking the edges a bit looks great! I adhered various cut out stamps with the U-Cut it foam! I love the dimension it adds, especially with the hot air balloons, gives them a 'floating' look.

3). Add more stamped images directly onto the letters. 

4). Embellish with buttons, twine, etc. I used a Canvas corp paper kraft pouch along with hearts backed with U-cut it foam to give the look of hearts floating out of the envelope.

Also, a fun little tip, for more dimension LAYER the foam for extra 'pop'!
