Valentine Ripple Heart Box
Hearts, Hearts, Hearts...!!! Do you know I'm a heart person myself. I like things with hearts or anything that look like hearts even. On this share, I used my favorite Embosslits Die, Scalloped Heart of Hearts #117332. Not only does it emboss hearts but it also cuts your scalloped heart to fit your punch heart pieces :) It always makes a big impression on any heart project.
Another favorite highlight is the Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334!! I hope you get this tool because you can do more with 3d projects with ease and control :)
TO DO THE RIPPLE EFFECT ON THE EDGE OF THE HEART:
Take a 1-1/2" x 12" cardstock (I used the Very Vanilla on this project), then score them at 1/2" interval on one side and 1/2" interval on the flip side starting at 1/4". Then cut the cardstock at 3/4", length-wise, getting 2 pieces. Fold the scores to get ripples.
You will need to cut the cardstock in halves again by hand... if you are not confident about cutting them by freehand... you may use your cutter (but it will be hard since you already scored them). Don't worry about an uneven cut :)
Take your Scalloped Heart and glue one side of the heart with glue gun then position your rippled cardstock to go clockwise around the heart. You may need to do this process half side of the heart at a time since the glue gun dries fast. Remember to position the ripples close to the edge of the heart and position ripples apart from each other. Positioning these ripples around the edge of the heart may need practice, so be patient:) Don't worry, it's not as hard as it looks. Have fun!!!
I applied glue gun onto the tip end of the heart and the valley end of the rippled edge of the heart onto the box.
Here's another box color. It looks good at any color for any occasion or event :)
