The International Ambassadors are blog hopping

Hello friends

  Some of the Spellbinders International Ambassadors are having an
informal blog hop and as it is Valentine's Day the theme is
love, hearts and all that stuff!
I've chosen to use one of the new Die D-Lites appropriately named...
Hearts.  Four dies in the set, they are a little bit quirky which I love!

I selected a papier-mache basket and applied regular white
paint, light brush strokes for a distressed look.

While that was drying I die cut hearts, little leaves and flowers.

My idea was to apply a heart to each side but decided that front and back
was ideal.  I also cut a smaller heart to hang from the handle with some twine.

I filled the basket with some chocolates which honestly did not last long!
Simple to do, great for table decorations too.

For more projects please hop along to my fellow
Ambassadors' blogs -  have fun!

Take care friends and wishing you all a 'love..ly' Valentine's Day.
