Hugs and Kisses Candy Box Artist on the Block

 Wow...more love on the blog today using Eileen Hull fabulous Artist Block Die from Sizzix.
 I wanted to share with you how to make them using all those cardboard boxes that your might have laying around. To begin with just cut pieces of the cardboard to fit the die and run through your die cut machine. Once cut....fold at the fold lines and pull carefully pull off some of the paper from the corrugated insides. I took white paint and dry brushed over the cardboard and then formed my Artist Block before I decorated it.
 I stamped four hearts from my stamp set and colored them in using paint I had diluted, allow them to dry thoroughly and glue to chipboard, cut out and wrap with wire.
Place them on to distress pattern paper using pop dots. 
To finish off my Hugs & Kisses box I stamped my sentiment on my pattern paper using Black Indian Ink and die cut it out using Eileen Hull Label Die. Add to the top with pop dots once inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink, tie bow with tan twine.
