Sherbet Love Altered Oval Box

Sherbet Love Heart Card and Heart Gift Box - designed and created by Jenny Pearce © 2009

Sherbet Love Altered Oval Box

This pretty gift box was created from an oval box blank and decorated using the Sherbet Love Paper Collection.

You Will Need:
Sherbet Love Paper Collection
Oval Wooden Box Blank (available from Hobbycraft stores)
Adhesive Gem Stones- Pale Pink, Bright Pink Large
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Textured Cardstock - Pale pink
Acrylic Paint - Bright Pink
White Pen


Paint the box with a layer or two of bright pink acrylic paint. Leave to dry. Ensure you have even coverage.

Draw a white dashed line around the edge of the oval lid and around the base of the box.

Mount a swirly heart from the collection onto pale pink card and cut around leaving an even border. Glue to the top of the box and outline with a dashed white line.

Cut a strip of 'I Love You' text from the printed sheet. Mount onto pale pink cardstock and trim leaving a slight border of pink at the edges. Glue around the rim of the lid.

Cut a number of swirly designs from the printed collection and glue, evenly spaced around the edge of the box. Alternate with large bright pink gem stones.
Decorate the centres of the swirly designs around the box and within the heart, with pink gem stones.

Place your loved ones' gift inside.
