Creations, Decoupage Memory Box

 

I know Valentine’s day is so yesterday,

but it is still February,

and I had an idea about how I could enjoy my Valentine cards all year long

 

 

 

 

I found this wood cube in the craft section of Target and decided to decoupage parts of the cards on it

 

 

 

 

I cut some pieces and shapes out of a few of the cards, and left some whole

 

 

 

 

I painted the cube black with chalkboard paint, thinking I could add further embellishments on the black parts not covered with a chalk paint pen

 

 

 

 

Once the paint is dry, the fun begins!

 

 

 

 

Both cards {above and below} were handmade

so they were decoupaged on with out changing them

 

 

 

 

I used cut out parts of the cards that were too big to fit

and to add interest

 

 

 

 

Text pieces and sweet photos

 

 

 

 

Once it was dry I added a few XOs

 

 

 

 

There wasn’t much room, I was able to cover most of the 6″ cube

 

 

 

I am going to enjoy my Valentines all year round 💕

 

 

 

Thank you my friends for all the beautiful Valentines!

💕 ❤️ 🌺 🌹 💕

  10. You got VERY pretty cards and I love the idea of doing the deco on the box. It’s a nice size, too — Good storage for all that small stuff that somehow ends up on the desk!
