Gorgeous Gift Boxes and Flower Tutorial

Well it's silly o'clock in the morning but as I didn't post yesterday I wanted something ready and waiting first thing this morning.

I was at a gig for my husbands band last night. They really rocked The George and Dragon in Princes Risborough! You can find out about other gigs by liking their Facebook page - King Loud

Yesterday I saw a great video by Stampin' Up! and fellow Pinkie - Lynne Fahey - showing us a gorgeous gift box made from a 12x12 sheet of card stock and a window sheet - so I had some miniature toiletries floating around and decided to make a box for them.

The box is Blushing Bride card stock decorated with Organza ribbon and the stamp set I used for the tag is Chalk Talk with the matching framelits - available as a bundle with 15% saving!

Here you can see the lid made with the Window Sheet just a little clearer.

Inside the box are tubes of Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Shampoo, Conditioner and a little soap. To fill the space above the soap I made a paper carnation using the large Scallop Circle punch.

You can just make it out - I used Rich Razzleberry card stock which is a lovely contrast with the Blushing Bride as you will have noticed on the label.

Here is a short video showing you how to make the flowers. If you would like instructions for making the box - please e-mail me and I will send them to you.

Have a great weekend! I know I shall be making the most of the sunshine! Sunday we have Pinkie Training - there will be loads of us getting together to craft and share inspiration - I'll post up pictures of my swaps tomorrow!
