Love Struck Again & Again & Again

Hi there friends!
Today I have 3 quick little projects to share with ya. Do you have the Love Struck cart? Then you'll be able to play along if you'd like :) I call these simple little projects Semi-Homemade Gifts. Yes, kinda like the cooking show with Sandra Lee (luuuv).
So, let's say V-day is tomorrow & you need some quickie cute gifts. Here's what you can give someone:

Blech, not too interesting. But it was cheap at under $1.

or... take that same box of chocolates & Semi-Homemake it into this:

(side) so you can see the dimension & layers :)

What if that is just too "Romantic" looking for ya. Ok, how about something a little more... Sweet:

This one has a little more Spring-y feel. I used Prima flowers & Dew Drops to embelish. The white layer is glittered for sparkle :)

Too sweet for ya? Does it make your teeth hurt just looking at it? Well, I have something that's a little more daring:

Grrr, Gone Wild! but with style, of course ;) For this one I used black glitter paper & it looks fierce! Tres Chic!

For about $1 each, you can create some fab semi-homemade gifts quick & easy. All of these different looks were created with 1 cart---> Love Struck. You've seen several projects done with this cart so you know I luuuv it! Now, one disclaimer: Because the images on this cart are so intricate, it's best that you don't cut small images (1-3 inches). At a small size, it just doesn't capture the details of the images & you'll be disappointed.

I cut the 1st one at 6 1/2", the second heart at 6 1/4", and the third heart at 8". I recommend you test your cuts to be sure it fits well on your project.

Kristina has a special announcement from YMH:

  1. Karli you are so creative! Fabulous job redoing a plain candy box and you're right about the love struck cart don't cut it too small...learned my lesson :) I love all the boxes.

  2. Karli, your boxes are AMAZING!! My fave is the "Sweetie" one, probably cuz iknow my girls would go nuts over all those flowers. Wonder if you can save the boxes once the candy is gone?

    Oh, I'm a Sandra Lee fan too and you got that sign off perfect, I just want to know did you do the little double hand wave goodbye when you were saying it in your head (you know I did;))
