Heart Shaped Box Re-purpose part 2

For those of you that followed my first post on re-purposing heart shaped boxes here is the second part.

Tonight my daughter helped me with this one cause it is for her.

I found a really cute how to on the kodak website for a candy box photo frame. You can find it here.

Here is how we made ours.

I had my daughter pick out a cute picture of her and her boyfriend then used the box to trace the heart.

We carefully cut the heart out.

We used silver acrylic paint on the back side of the box and inside around the picture.

We cut out a stand on the back then hot glued the hearts together and glued the picture inside.

Sooo adorable!

I still have a couple more boxes I am going to re-purpose so be on the look out for it!

Heart Shaped Box Re-purpose ♻

Valentine’s Day is over and you are left with a few reminders like the cards and flowers.  You also have that heart shaped box that your yummy chocolates came in.  Last year I received this very pretty box from my husband. It was a velvety material with a white and gold rope around the edges.  The sides of the box where also velvet.  It was so pretty I didn’t want to just toss it in the garbage but I also didn’t want to have it sit around in my closet with other clutter I really need to start weeding through.  So I thought… What a cute pillow this would make!!

I started to carefully pull the material away from the cardboard. Once I had it all pulled apart I noticed the material and rope was all just glued together. So my second step was to carefully sew around the entire seam making sure I caught the rope too.

Although the heart was pretty as it was, I still wanted to add a little something to it so I looped it up and put it on my machine and embroidered an “A” in the middle with white thread.

Next I used the foam that was placed between the fabric and cardboard as a guide to cut out a heart from some scrap satin I had.

I sewed it together stuffed it and this was the ending result…


This year my box of chocolates did not have fabric on them.  I did see some really cute ones in the store tho!

I will be posting other Reusable ideas for heart shaped boxes!

Until next time.. Stay crafty and be green!!
