Valentine's Button Box

Here's a gift I made for a friend for this Valentine's Day.

I purchased an inexpensive box from the craft store and painted it with salmon pink acrylic paint. To give it a "whitewashed" look, I lightly brushed some off-white acrylic paint over the pink and sprayed with gloss to seal it.


I glued felt on the inside bottom and shirt buttons in a heart shape on top (my friend is cute as a button after all). :)

I really like the idea of using some of my button stash. I will be tempted to put this on a mint tin or something using jewel-it glue. After sanding, I can paint the tin red or even pink before gluing on buttons for heart. Might even fill it with conversation or cinnamon hearts too. Good idea however you use it.
