Stampin up on board heart box

Here are the colors for this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  CLICK HERE TO PLAY ALONG!



  • The box top and bottom are each chipboard hearts from the On Board Heart Book.  You can make four chipboard boxes with one Heart Book.
  • I attached card stock/designer series paper to the chipboard hearts with Stampin' Up!'s 2-Way Glue Pen and trimmed away the excess with Paper Snips.
  • The strip in between  is 1 1/4" wide and scored at 1/4" the long way.
  • To get the strip to adhere and wrap in the shape of the heart, I cut tiny tabs into the 1/4" section of the strip.
  • You will need more than one strip to complete the heart.  I used a 11 x 1 1/4" strip first, scored it at the center (the short way) and began to adhere with the center score at the bottom point of the heart.
  • Use Sticky Strip for the best hold.
  • Optional:  Cut a heart slightly smaller than the chipboard base/top to fit in the box for a polished look (and to cover the tabs).
