Mixed Media Monday: Valentine's Chocolate Box

We love this romantic idea from Anita Houston, made from a recycled cigar box.

1. I created a master board I loved that I can use over and over again. Craft Attitude let's me do that. How to create your master board:

2. You can scan or take a photo of your master board. I took the clearest photo I could.

3. I printed my master board digital image out on Craft Attitude using reverse image mode; as many prints as I wanted to use for lots of projects.

4. I lined the inside of the cigar box with the Craft Attitude print and edged with tissue tape.

5. I wanted texture on the outside of the box, so I dry embossed Tim's Swirls Texture Fade from Sizzix. I silver foil peeking through was wonderful. I love that Craft Attitude is embossable. 

6. I adhered the embossed Craft Attitude to the box, and lined it with Tissue Tape.

7. I used more of the Craft Attitude to make roses! I adhered it to Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art, and then die cut it with the 3D Flowers Bigz Die. I shaped them with my heat tool. These were so addicting! I made so many roses and rosettes. I LOVE this stuff!

8. I added wooden feet, lace and embellishments!
