Heart Shaped Box

Nicole here today with a fun project I made for Valentine's Day.  I made heart shaped boxes for all 3 of my daughters and had fun decorating them with some 3 Girl JAM ribbon.  Here is one of my boxes where I made a flower using some of the new 3 Girl JAM "light and bright" lace and a vintage button.

Here is a closeup of another flower I made using some of the 3GJ "Distressed" lace, 3GJ Vintage button and some Aqua Splash crinkle ribbon.  This time I glued the ribbon in the same manner as I did the lace in the previous flower but I only glued one layer of lace on this flower.

To create my lace flower I used my hot glue gun and glued the lace to a circle I cut out by hand. I started at the perimeter of the circle and worked my way inward and then glued a 3GJ vintage button in the center.  For more details on my heart shaped box and to see the two other ones I made, please visit my BLOG.  


  1. Nicole, the box is so pretty, but that lace flower is fabulous! And no sew? Woohoo! Maybe I can do that!?!

  2. Nicole…I love all three of these boxes, so different and SO beautiful. I have tried {and failed} at the lace flowers…guess I need to be more determined. Your projects are a great motivator! PS….Aqua Splash is one of my FAVs!

  3. So so so pretty! Love the lace / ribbon flowers. Beautiful way to dress up your boxes!
