Hi Peachy Friends! It's Joy from Joy's Life.com. Today is the last day of my Guest Designer week with Peachy Keen. I sure have enjoyed it! I sincerely thank Peachy Keen for choosing me to spend a week with them. I hope you've enjoyed it too! Today I've created a Valentine holder out of a tissue box. I chose a tissue box because it's something most everyone has on hand.
I used super simple tools to create this Valentine holder. Mainly, I used an Exacto knife and heart punches by EK Success and Marvy Uchida. You're going to be surprised to learn that I used Peachy Keen Monsters 'n More for the two heart faces on the bottom of each skewer! (I don't think they make that set now though. They do have some other cute Monster Faces.) I used Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment for the rest of the faces.
I also used an ATG gun, tulle for the ribbon, pop dots, tissue paper, black ink for stamping and liquid chalk for inking. Use a self healing mat when cutting with an Exacto/craft knife. It provides an excellent surface for cutting and you can press down hard with the knife without worrying about damaging anything. Be careful though!
I used the Martha Stewart fringe scissors and red tissue paper to make a pretty and fun lining for the top of the box. Zip Dry paper glue was used to attach the fringed tissue paper to the inside of the box top.
Look at all those cute Peachy Keen faces! I used DH's grill skewers so I could have something to hold the hearts. Poor DH. His bamboo skewers have been depleted for crafting uses throughout the year. LOL! The sentiment stamp is from Joy's Life Mother & Daughter stamps. I used a red Copic marker to color the skewer with the big heart and Joy's Life stamp on it. It blends in much better after coloring it red. I used a red liquid chalk to help tint the hearts with the Peachy Keen faces on them.
Thanks again Peachy Keen for having me as a Guest Designer this week. I had a GREAT TIME!
And now...time for a Give Away!!
AND THE WINNER IS...
