This cute little calling card box was created by Guest Designer, Beth Leintz. Beth has been a longtime friend of The Vintage Workshop and is a great designer that uses vintage elements combined with imagery from The Vintage Workshop.

Beth created this Calling Card Box using images from our Cupids & Doves Collection IE364. Be creative and pick your favorite Valentine’s Day image from our vast selection to create your own box following the directions below.
Using decorative edge scissors, cut a 1 inch wide strip of decorative paper to wrap around the bottom of a purchased paper mache box. You can age the edges of the strip using a stamp pad, or highlight the edges using a metallic paint pen. Glue the decorative strip to the box and glue rick rack on top of the decorative paper. You can also use The Vintage Workshop’s Vintage Wallpaper Collection.
Adhere a heart shaped doily to the top of the box. Glue an image from the Cupids & Doves collection to a piece of card stock or light-weight cardboard and trim with decorative edge scissors. Cut a corner off the edge of the image and glue the image to the top of the box at an angle. Refer to the picture for placement. You may want to use a small L-shaped cardboard piece as an “easel” on the back of the card to make it stand up straight. Glue a ribbon rose to the front of the box.
Until next time…
