Cheery Lynn Design Challenge #116 Sweethearts

Evening bloggers just wanted to post a little box I made to enter in the challenge over at CLD this week . This week it's all about sweethearts&love. I've admired these little Origami Boxes for some time now so decided to try making one . I saw a video tutorial over on Sandi Mclean's blog  that she had made . I used K&C pattern papers(since I own tons of it) to create my box . It was pretty cool to see how this was created with just folding the paper. For my lid I used spellbinders scalloped square and then layered it with CLD Italian doily ,flowers were made with spellbinders blossoms one. I decorated the box with MS heart punch , CLD Sophia's Heart Border B333.I then finished it off with hearts cut from glitter c/s ,red gems and red organza ribbon . I will be getting this to someone special filled with candy on Valentines Day.

Gorgeous box, Marilyn. Sorry about the name mixup. Love the floral arrangement on the top of your box perfectly set off by the doily. Good luck and thanks for joining in on the fun at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.
