"This project uses a small shoebox (less than 12" in width) as a base to decorate to collect Valentine's Day cards in. There are numerous ways to customize this box such as using wrapping paper, punches, foam letters, stamps, die-cuts, stickers, silk flowers, sequins, twine, ribbon and so much more. The example shown in the photo uses a special foiled paper, some die-cuts from steel dies as well as from an electronic die cutting machine."
