Follow Your Heart

Hey there! Happy Monday to you! I have a little keepsake box to share with you today that can be used for an anniversary, just because, or what ever occassion you see fit.  :-)
 I covered the matchbox with pattern paper and distressed with sandpaper.  Then I punched a label bracket from a stripe pattern paper and added my SRM Sticker sentiment plus two heart die cuts sewn together.  I added a strip of rhinestone to make it sparkle!  The ribbon is tied around the top of the box and a button with floss attached to the center.
 For the inside box, I painted it cream and then distressed to match the casing.  I added SRM border stickers on both the left and right side of the box as shown.   Inside I placed the perfectly sized "XO" sticker. How I love that SRM Sickers adhere nicely to any surface.

I created my handle with a stick pin and earring back.

I hope you like!
