Heart Box

At Just Us Girls there is a challenge to make a Valentine Treat Container http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/. I needed a treat box for a boy so I went with nontraditional Valentine colors so that this could be used to store little objects all year round.



Started with a chipboard heart box and painted it with craft paint in blue.  Covered it with coordinating papers from Pebbles Inc. - Party Time Boy, using Aleene's Instant Decoupage in Matte finish.  Added 2 coats of the Instant Decoupage over the top of the dp.  Decorated the top with chipboard surfboards covered with dp and added Sakura Stardust gel pen accents/designs and letter D sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Riptide.  Stamped the palm tree and little Woody vehicle, colored with Prismacolor markers, then cut them out.  Layered onto Nesties die cuts and added the large flourish die cut.
Hope he likes it!
Thanks for looking!
