My Creative Time-Made in Minutes

Happy Monday!! Today is Made in Minutes over at My Creative Time!

Here is what I came up with in 15 minutes!

I must admit that this was a bit of a challenge for me. I like to add a lot of detail and had to learn to simplify. Though I like how it turned out for being a quick project!

Step 1: I cut the little treat box from SVG Cutting Files: Mini Nugget Platform Bases. I then proceeded to fill the treat box with sweethearts candy. This took me about three minutes total to cut it out and put it together.

Step: 2:  I cut the large heart from MCT: Sweethearts & XOXO dies. Then I added an adorable Peachy Keen Stamps: Sweet On You face to it. I colored the eyes with Copic Markers and added chalk ink to the cheeks. This all took about four minutes. 

Step 3: I cut out 5 smaller pink hearts from the MCT: Sweethearts & XOXO dies and 4 smaller red hearts from MCT: 4x4 Journal Die & More. Then I adhered them to the box. This took around three minutes. 

 Step 4: I cut out a sentiment banner from MCT: Chocolate Greetings Stamp set and then added the sentiment from MCT: Once Upon a Time Stamp Set. Next, I cut out two more little hearts to add to the banner. This took around three minutes.

Step: 5 I finished the projects by adding pearl accents to the hearts and twine. This took a couple of minutes.
