Loving Hearts Repurposed Chocolate Box for
the "Love Cast in Clay" Bloghop

Welcome to my project for the "Love Cast in Clay" Bloghop!!!
You should have arrived here from Edie's page...
Life, by the seat of my pants.
To get back to the top of the hop...please click here.

My project started out as a recycled paper heart chocolate know the Russell Stover one's. Mine I have had stashed in my paint drawer saving it for an opportunity for altering! Well here it is. I built up a layer of the Creative Paperclay® around the outer edge of the box to beef it up some - like a ceramic box would be. Then with Amazing Mold Putty, I cast a scrollwork heart frame ornament and also a scrollwork heart pendant. I used the molds I created to mold both of these in Creative Paperclay®. To finish it off, I painted over the Looney Toon's characters adorning the box and the edging of paperclay with red acrylic paint. Then over that, I decopaged a red heart doily using 3-D Crystal Lacquer.  Keep reading below about how I painted the hearts {sorry for tugging at your heart strings}. I added some twisty tri-colored trim around the edge of box base and finished off with a pretty green bow.

30 colors of Sakura Terri Sproul's Mixers are now available.
Contact your local SB store owner to get yours!!!
And here's the piece-de-resistance.....can I have a drumroll please....I painted the paper clay hearts with my three magical pots of the BRAND NEW Sakura Terri Sproul Mixers that get mixed into 3-D Crystal Lacquer!!! Ta-da!!!! My box is lovely and reborn. I will use this to send a special gift to my sister for Valentine's Day for her girls.
