Heartfelt Box

I’m leading a table of gals for Believing Jesus by Lisa Harper. I’ve created this sweet little box to share with each gal the first day of class to help them know they are loved and the importance of making declarations over their life. We’ll begin studying together on Thursday, January 9, at Woodlawn United Methodist Church, Joy Bible Study.

Project Recipe:
Stamps: 
Heartfelt (151417)
Card-Stock:
Real Red (102482), Shimmery White (101910), Flirty Flamingo (141416), From My Heart Specialty DSP (151189) 
Ink: Real Red (147084)
Accessories: 
Heart Punch Pack (151292), Layering Circles Dies (141705), Stitched So Sweetly Dies (151690), Tear and Tape Adhesive (138995), Dimensionals (104430)

After Jesus ascended into heaven, the disciples were required to risk everything to establish a new community that would change the future world. After all these years later, it remains the same.

I created the tag by typing the info and setting the Real Red matching color using the Hex Value Color Chart and then die cutting with the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The box is triangular shaped and works great for keeping the message at the fingertips of the receiver because it serves as an easel. I found the directions for putting it together at Chick’ n Scratch with Angie Juda. The directions can be found by following this link. I used a magnetic closure and put 7 Dove chocolates in the box, one for every day of the week until we get together again the next Thursday. Hope you’ll consider creating your own custom design and sharing with someone you love!

Happy stamping!
