If I couldn't have him, NO ONE WOULD!!!

For those of you have been following me might remember back in September I had displayed my Appalling Apothecary.  Well a piece of that apothecary was the heart of a (former) sinful boyfriend (in the jar to the right). 
Today I give you a little back story how that heart got there. 

My relationship with my former boyfriend was just like any other relationship, except I was in love with him but he was in love with someone else.  Once I found out about this, I felt that since I couldn't have him, NO ONE WOULD and I "took care of him!"

Here is how my memory box use to look like when were together:
Valentine's Day use to be a favorite holiday of ours until I found out that he was also planning to spend it with the other woman.  So I decided that Valentine's Day would be the perfect day for me to "take care of him!" 

I found a voodoo priestess and she instructed me how to make my very own paper voodoo doll.

Then when I knew he was with her, I did it!  I then claimed the heart that belonged to me and would NEVER belong to another! 

This was his hearts first resting place along side the wonderful memories we created together:

Now NO ONE will ever have his heart but ME!!!

I used these items to create my paper voodoo doll:
  • Wonderstrange arts Free digital image Voodoo Doll which I printed out on craft paper (to give it a burlap look) and altered by cutting off the candy cane
  • red Sharpie marker - for the heart
  • Silver Gloss paint marker - for the pins
  • white gel pen - for the heads of the pins
  • Glossy Accents - for the entire pin to give it a more realistic look
  • buttons - for the eyes
  • floss - for the eyes, mouth and around the heart
  • doily heart
  • ribbon
I am entering this Paper Voodoo Doll in the following challenges:
Ok, so obviously this is just a fictious story that I created to go along with my creation.  I hope I didn't freak you out too much!
