Gift Box and Card

Hello, fellow . I used the crafters! Jeanie, DT, with another project for Paper Temptress! I had fun making this, as it was a little addition with my card…a little gift box! I can’t take credit for the originality of this box idea. It came from a craft book called Score, Fold, Create! by Diana Crick, Penny Wessenauer and friends. Lots of good ideas and techniques inside! The only difference I did on it was to use a magnetic closure rather than a ribbon. After making the box, I made the card. I used the Skinny White Columns paper to make the base card, then colored it with TH Victorian Velvet distress ink so the paper would match the Coral Mica/Metallic .  I used in the box. I made both flowers from the Cryogen Iridescent paper, but before I put them together I used the same TH distress ink to color them in. For the image inside the box, I simply saved my colored image to my pc, then resized it to fit the box. I used the Feathered Mint ribbon to decorate it and make the handle for the box. I also used the White Velvet as a mat for my card image.

I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did in making it! Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis – Scrapbookingmamaw
