I made a little box for Valentine's Day by layering and gluing a stack of paper hearts together, sanding it and applying a glossy coat. To make it extra special you can write your sweetie's name or a romantic phrase on the lid.

Step 1: Materials and Tools:

  • Old magazines or catalogs
  • Coloured paper; reds and pinks (paper with colour on both sides works the best)
  • Heart punch (I used a 2 inch one)
  • Dremel/ sandpaper
  • Glue (the white stuff that dries clear - ie; Weldbond, Mod Podge)
  • Small plastic container
  • Brush for applying glue
Love it!

Ya, coating it with glue makes look almost like plastic.<br />
&nbsp;Thats a perfect little project! Keep it up.
