Love is in the air today on the Graphic 45 blog. With Valentine’s Day, just weeks away now is the perfect time to create a Loveletter Box, perfect for storing your own keepsakes or giving as a gift filled with treats, photos, and of course a love letter. This video tutorial has been created for us by G45 Brand Ambassador, Larissa Fyodorovna. Larissa DIY box was inspired by our #G45Box – January Challenge, and we hope her project inspires you to join in the fun too!
Loveletterbox for Graphic 45
“On the topic of Seasonal Project, Valentine’s Day popped into my head immediately! The day of all people in love has led me to an inspiration full of romance. For this, the Alice’s Tea Party collection gave me the basis. The collection has a great matching color scheme and motifs. Materials from other collections/ sets have also been used, see the supply list and the information in the video. That’s how this Loveletterbox came into being. In the video, you can follow the step-by-step instructions. This can be used quite individually, from the classic storage of love letters and memorabilia, or as a photo box, or as a gift box.
Have fun with it.”
– Video Tutorial-
One of my favorite tricks is to incorporate three-dimensionality and multilayeredness into the composition in a simple way. For this purpose, cardboard spacers between the layers are well suited, as well as the use of hot glue, which is applied extra not flat, but voluminous.
The composition can look especially wonderful if you cut out and use the same elements from 12×12″ and 8×8″ paper sheets and use them together.
