I also wanted to show you that gifts don't have to be expensive to be beautiful and that with a little hand crafted packaging, it can mean more than something that cost £50...I created these little containers using just a basic box shape later this week I'll try to create a tutorial to show how i did it... I used SU Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie CS for the box shapes and Certainly Celery for the Scallops and So Many Scallops Stamp set...along with an Old Olive Craft Ink pad. I used Nestabilities to create the circles and scalloped circles and just a little ribbon and twine from my stash..Every body commented on them saying it looked like I'd gone to an expensive flower shop... i was chuffed that so many made positive comments at work, now I'm going to create packaging for all the gifts i buy... it shows you've thought that little bit more about it all.... and Stampin Up is just perfect for creating gift packaging as well as cards and scrapbooks.. On to more happy news.. thank you so much to the girls who wanted to create one of the little trinket boxes there weren't many of you but that's ok.. Mark picked out two from the list and here they are.. Ladies let me have your details and I'll get the boxes and little bits and pieces into the post this week..
Your box is just darling. So beautiful and elegant. I'd love to give this a try. My daughter loves treasure boxes and I think I'd decorate one up for her to keep her treasures in. Have a great day!

I get the feedblitz email from your blog and dived straight over from seeing what you have done: It is a beautiful box and I would love to have a go. I'm trying to stretch myself to other things than just cards and this would be a wonderful project for me at the moment.So glad you are on the mend and that Gizmo is still giving you the run around!
