Hail, The Queen of Hearts

Hey Y'all,

I hope you had a wonderful New Years and are looking forward to a great year.  This little gift box is for the King, Queen or princess in your life that loves hearts. Maybe you just want to make that someone special in your life know where they stand with you, so lets get started.

 Bring the Crown panel onto your virtual mat, using your knife tool cut off the circles on the tops of the crown. Now use the Heart # 4 from Romantic Flourishes SVG Collection. Size the largest heart for the center top at W 2.00 x H 1.501. Size the smaller heart for the other points at W1.158 x H 0.869. Place the largest heart on the point for the center top, do the same with the smaller hearts on the other 4 points that the smaller circles were on. Select the large heart, hold down the shift key and select all the smaller hearts, choose the crown last. Right click and weld these together.
I made the liner for the crown my subtracting the width measurement of the original crown from the width measurement of the liner to see what size it was being reduced to. Then I took that reduced measurement in this case it was W.0.216 and subtracted that from the Heart crown I just made and that made my liner. I tell you this so you can better understand how I adjust things to fit but here are the sizes of the crown and liner you will need to cut. Crown W 8.330 x H 8.318 Liner 8.114 x H 8.102.

 For the bottom panels for the crown, choose the #1 heart from Romantic Flourishes SVG Collection, size the heart to W 0.198 X H 0.154. Choose the bottom panels and size them to W.5.788 x 1.425. Click on the bottom panels and un-group then release compound path. Don't move anything yet.  Click on the cut settings so you can see where your circles are. You would choose the cut settings as if you were going to cut it.  Now duplicate your heart 8 times and arrange each heart over the circle. This will help you get proper placement of each heart. You may need to angle each heart so they look straight when it cuts. Now choose each circle and move them off to one side. You will know you have the right one to remove as the size of the circles are smaller than the hearts. Once you have placed all the hearts were they go choose the hearts and the band and click modify and subtract. You have now learned how to change the shapes in the crown. For those of you with "Frozen" fanatics in your house I expect to see crowns with snowflakes. LOL I used Cuttlebug Musical Flourish emboss folder on the bottom panels.  Delete the circles that you moved off to the side.

For the puffy part of the crown I used the top of the Cup cake container from Happy Birthday to You SVG Kit. You do not need to alter anything to get it to fit and it sets just inside the crown and is a pretty snug fit when the panels are on. It makes a nice gift box for that special person in your life. I think if you changed the colors this could work for that man in your life as well.  I decorated the lid and crown bottom with rhinestones and used Art Glitter's Christmas Red opaque glitter and Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. Do the glitter first though and then the rhinestones. The paper is from Echo Park, Happy Days Collection. I have paper I love in reserve and this was one I thought I could use quite a bit.
 There are so many great Valentines papers out there but I have yet to do some shopping. I hope you enjoy my little crown box and if you do make one please share your photo with my on my Facebook Page. I love seeing your ideas come to life to and you never know who your going to inspire by sharing! Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my blog. I wish all of you a very Happy New Year and Happy Craftin Y'all.
Blessings Sharalyn
