Valentine Box

We are going to be having a Valentine's party at school on Thursday. We were suppose to each make a box to hold our Valentine's in.  I made my out of a tissue box.

My mom helped me cover the box in white card stock and add a piece of pink and white striped patterned paper around the top.  Then we added pink glitter ribbon around the box to hide where the white and striped paper meet.
Here is the front of my box.  I added gold stickers to spell out my name and added Tweety Bird stickers.  I drew hearts, dots and squiggly lines using glitter glue.

Here are the sides of my box. I added more stickers and more glitter glue.  See the bumble bee Tweety? I added that because our school masscot is a bumble bee.

Here is the back of my box. I added more stickers and more glitter glue but I also added "Valentine's Day!" 
Here is what the top of my box looks like. I added more ribbon (my mom helped me with this because it was hard to add the tape to the top of the box and I wanted to make sure it would stay stuck down).  After the ribbon was on I added more hearts and squiggly lines using glitter glue.

Here is my DT project for this week's challenge at 2 Sisters Challenges. Our theme is hearts and our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish.  I decided to alter a notebook this week. Here it is. . . . . .

I started with a mini notebook. I covered the front and back in heart patterned paper.  I added pink glitter paper ribbon.  I added a red heart die cut and added silver, pink and red gltter to it. I even added my initials (RLD) using glitter glue.  I added a white heart sticker to the red heart and a pink heart sticker to the top corner.
