Shadowbox Ornaments #3

Hello again!
Still on my mission to fill the bare limbs of my once Christmas tree, as it transforms into our family Valentine tree, and I'm back with the third of eight ornament designs.

Here's a couple pictures I took to explain how I made them.
Each starts with a heart box cut from a cutting machine and then a cut heart flourish type frame placed on top.
5 more Valentine shadow boxes ready to get started.

I had the cutting machine cut out several trees, fences and keys to decorate.  I also printed out and fussy cut several vintage Valentine images.
 
Here's 
Headed to Lover's Lane ;)

You're Hot!
You're a Dear
I Love You!
 Puppy Love
and lastly...
Squeeze Me!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for the visit.
I'm off to finish up my house chores and then watch more Dexter. Good grief, that show is addictive!!

Hugs n' Happy crafting,
Lisa x

Ornament #1 - Vintage Crochet Heart
Ornament #2 - Rosette Silhouette

Wow, wow, and then wow some more!!

I'm so enchanted by the notion that your Christmas tree becomes a Valentine's tree... what a delightful idea. And with these to decorate it - well, I think I feel another "wow" coming on!!

Wonderful idea of converting a Christmas tree to a valentine tree and these ornaments will make it look just WOW !! I loved the cute little scenes you have created in the shadow boxes a lot !

Cestina said...

Oh my goodness - the last thing Butterfly (my daughter :-) ) needs is the idea that one can redecorate the Tree for non-Christmas! But what a brilliant thought....

I too love the shadow boxes....

I do love your ideas Lisa. You always manage to put a completely different spin on everything and this idea of the Valentine's tree is such a clever one. LOVE these shadow boxes and I hope we will get to see the tree in all its glory when they are all done. Jenny x

Sorry so many comments all on one day. I like to come here when I have time to soak it all in. What a feast for the eyes. Your little heart boxes are amazing. I hope you have a beautiful boutique some day and can fill it with all these treasures - if you could part with them. They must be a labor of love because each one is original and different.

Holy CRAP!!! You are my hero!!!! I pinned a ton of vintage valentines last month and knew that I wanted to use them somehow and then I see this!!! I'm sure mine won't be nearly as elaborate or awesome!!!
