OCC Valentine

Good morning! Sorry it's been a while since I posted- I've had the flu since Sunday. I was home from work, and reaaaaaly wanted to craft, but didn't feel up to it. I mostly slept, which is what I probably needed. Thankfully, I feel better today! I'm also visiting my family on Long Island- my grandfather's 90th birthday party is tomorrow. Should be fun!!

Well anyway, today is my first official week on the design team at Our Creative Corner! The challenge this week is to make a 3D Valentine's Day project. I've had this cute patterned paper for a while, and was really excited to use it-the soft colors are perfect for Valentine's Day! I covered 2 paper mache boxes with the paper, and glued the smaller on top. I added ribbon and a die-cut sentiment, as well as the paper flower and butterfly. To make the flower, I used a tutorial found here. Takes a bit of time, but it's definitely worth it!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you play along at OCC!
