Purple Heart Box

My son & I were in the A.C. Moore a few weeks ago & he saw this box & wanted to get it. His Aunt Deanna's Birthday was coming up & she loves hearts so I said we could make it for her. I also picked up some metallic purple & silver paint, a clear glaze, some foam brushes, a smaller wooden heart for the top, chipboard letters & a sheet of glittered black felt. 

I painted three coats of purple on the inside & out & then three coats of glaze. The heart cutout got three coats of silver, a sprinkling of fine iridescent glitter & then three coats of glaze. It was then glued to the top. I flocked the chipboard "NANA" with purple flock, glued them on the silver heart & added the acrylic flower & a purple rhinestone. I cut a heart to fit the inside bottom out of the felt & glued it down. We gave it to her on Sunday & she really liked it.
