First sand, wash off the dust and paint the house shaped box gold.  All items are attached using Sakura Crystal Lacquer. Add German Scrap foil to the edges as seen in the pictures. Adhere a page of text to back panel of the box, layering a doily on the text. Add a little bling to the doily with gold glitter glue. Attach strips of sheet music on the sides. 
Spray paint the Terra Cotta Cherub with a very light coating of Krylon Cherry Bomb Glitter Blast Glitter Spray. When dry gently wipe gold paint over the cherub being careful not to cover the Krylon glitter. Adhere heart bead and arrow.
Print Altered Pages Victorian Valentine images on matt photo paper.  Fussy cut and cover with a light coating of Sakura Lacquer to bring out the colors of the images.  To raise the images on the left, paint two dominos gold and wrap with German Scrap.  The image on right is on an alpa dice with a hint of gold paint toped with a Scrabble tile painted gold and wrapped with German Scrap.   

    To make embellishments:
  • Use Scrabble pieces to spell LOVE if you don't have an "O" a heart works in its place. Cover the letters with Sakura Crystal Lacquer mixed with Pink Mixers. 
  • Bottle cap cut an Eiffel Tower image with a 1" punch. Adhere  in the bottle cap with Sakura Lacquer then cover the image with the lacquer.  Let it dry for 24 hours. Add lacquer around the outside of the image in the bottle cap, add see beads. 
  • PARIS - stamp the word Paris in paper clay, let dry.  Use red and gold craft paint, coat with lacquer.
  • Clear Glass salt shaker painted with red Sakura Crystal Lacquer. 
  • Hand Made Roses made from red card stock and trimmed with red glitter glue.  
Once you have everything made you are ready to assemble. Have fun!
