Ticket to be Creative

I made these at the rather last minute--darn that mega sale on conversation hearts! I covered the boxes in a really heavy weight card stock, a doily, heart sequin banner, a paper rose and two love tickets.  Then each received a somewhat random assortment of this and that.  What a great way to use up stash.  Love!

My new technique/product for this round:  gold leaf.   I stamped glue hearts on some of the boxes and leafed them.  Man, that stuff gets everywhere.  I do have a cool concept for a card using the stuff in the background but that's for another day.

The Details:  Sweetheart boxes of hearts, Ciao Bella 12x12 cardstock pack, BoBunny doilies, Whimsy Stamps The Fun Life Tickets stamps, Just the Ticket stamps, My Moments paper roses, Pine Cone Press heart sequins, Craft Medley cup sequins, Hero Arts Shadow Tide Pool, Memento Tuxedo Black, Brilliance Galaxy Gold, stash ribbon
