Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. To make your Valentine’s gift just that bit more special and personalized, why not put it in a box of love?
I was super excited to try Kassa’s Whiteboard contact paper in my Cricut, and I was even more excited when it cut beautifully and didn’t require any weeding or special tools. As a Valentine’s Day gift from Letter Me! And Kassa, click here for a free downloadable “LOVE” hand lettered by Letter Me! to use in your projects! You can import it into your die cast machine or even just print it out to make your own Valentine’s Day card.
So here is a fun and simple way of how I turned a boring black box into a box of love.
What you’ll need:
- Kassa Whiteboard contact paper
- Cricut machine or other die cut machine (if you don’t have a die cut machine, skip straight to Step Nine)
- Letter Me! free downloadable “love” lettering, or hand letter your own message 😊
- Kassa Clear Transfer Paper
- Kassa Liquid Chalk Markers
- Black gift box
Cut out a piece of Kassa Whiteboard contact paper, to the size you would like the word lettered on your box.
Download the hand lettered “love” or hand write your own message. Using your die cut machine and the Kassa Whiteboard contact paper, cut the word out to fit your box.
Remove the negative space from the cut out. Gently bend the Contact Paper slightly and remove the negative space from inside the letters o, v and e. It should come off easily without a weeding tool!
Cut out a piece of Kassa Transfer paper the same size as your Contact Paper.
Peel off the clear gridlines side of the Transfer tape and stick it over the “love” contact paper. Using a plastic scraper or credit card, scrape the transfer tape to ensure that it is stuck down on to the contact paper.
Gently remove the backing paper so that only “love” is stuck to the transfer paper. Be careful as to not touch the sticky side of the word as the oils on your fingertips will affect the adhesiveness of the word.
Carefully place the transfer tape with your cut out on it, on your black box. When you are happy with the positioning, use the scraper or credit card to firmly scrape the letters down on to your box.
Gently peel off the transfer tape to reveal your lettering on your box.
Now for my favorite part. Take out your vibrant and juicy Kassa liquid chalk markers and decorate your box with words of love.
