2nd post of the day, challenge entry, please scroll down to read my earlier post

Hi peeps,

Want to welcome new follower Dolly Daydreams - hope you'll find a reason to return some time soon and leave me comments . . . I LOVE to read comments!

This weeks theme, set today by the lovely Rosie, is BAGS AND BOXES so . . .  I set about making a gift box with my limited stash here . .

Front of my gift box

Angled view so you can see the shape
Materials used:
  • 29cm x 14.5cm sheet of heavy paper
  • Triangle (14cm) of black paper
  • Triangle (13cm) of DCWV Old World card
  • Magnolia image kindly donated (my thanks to the donor) and coloured using copics and Viva Decor glitter pen
  • Black card punched button (using my new Martha Stewart button punch) and threaded with turquoise ribbon
  • Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the sides of the gift box
  • Grey organza ribbon threaded through the holes and tied in a bow, to close the box

These boxes are super easy to make - ask Lauren as she discovered the instructions!!! And super suitable for small edibles - hence the choice of Tilda!!!

Well I see you have been as creative as ever while I have been away Kathy, and enjoying the Florida sunshine too with your pal. I can't believe you have made so many things, fabulous ATCs and great wedding cards and gorgeous photos.
Thanks for staying in touch.
