I really liked this box opening and the great color and wrap and recycled squiggles.

The craft for this box was an upcycled wine cork heart!  The information card provided the instructions for the craft and was full color with complete instructions. The printing on this is high quality.

All of the supplies for this craft and there’s also a bonus craft, see it below the main craft!

I started the first craft like the instructions said and placed the corks following the pattern however they did not include enough corks.  I quickly made some adjustments and got it to work but I thought it was a little odd that they gave a pattern and told you to use it but then didn’t send enough supplies.

Here is my modified heart.  I was able to use the corks they provided and just line them up with the smaller heart of the pattern.

My finished heart.  I really liked this craft and was glad they included a glue gun. I would assume that most people have a glue gun if they are crafty but if you are just getting into it then it was a nice addition.  I also loved how we used the burlap from the package wrapping to put around the heart. It was a great way to use up some decorative supplies.

A bonus craft is always included.

This craft included the makeup pot and the sugar but I had to provide the oil and the toothpick.

This craft was super simple and you just mixed some of the sugar with the oil in the pot.

I really liked both of these crafts and the hippie feel of them. The heart is really cute and looks great already hanging on my wall.  It was an easy project to do and I’m already thinking of other projects that I can do with some wine corks.  I love a glue gun and they make crafting so much fun.
