Happy Friday morning friends,
I do hope that the weekend will be filled with lovely things to do and great weather to do them in. For those celebrating Mother's day this Sunday, I wish you all a fabulous day.
I made a gift box, but there is a story to it. As part of a DT assignment we were to make a gift box using the cutting file supplied. I was so happy to make one as I needed a gift for a friend. More than halfway through, I reread the challenge theme, yes you guessed it. It was to be a male theme....Ok plan B, I now have the template all sorted so no problem, but I didn't have enough paper for what I had in mind....So onto plan C and another card made from a car template. I then finished the box for my friend's gift.
The template for the box came from The Cutting Cafe I cut it out by hand and assembled it. The template comes with 2 options...a single box or 3 boxes as shown in the photo.
The paper that I used is from Michele R Designs
The range is called Vintage Shabby Flowers. Michele has gorgeous designs and if you subscribe you will get regular updates and she also has lovely free papers from time to time.
The flowers and leaves are all made from Marianne Design diecuts.
I added lace, pearls and ribbon to close the box.
I added a sentiment on the inside, which came with the papers and the Diecut is from Joycrafts..Noor design
