This set of cards in the cute little box is for JUGS - Just Us Girls #26...Template Challenge This was such a fun challenge as I don't normally make my own gift boxes- well sometimes - but not very often so I thought I'd like to make a small box using the free template My Time Made Easy LLC kindly has on the MTME website- thanks for that it is such an easy template to follow-as I think all of her templates are. And guess what JUST I found out I have WON one of her templates through Lesa Rapp of Paper Possibilities -Wow can you believe it- Thanks Lesa and Lauren for that great prize- now I just have to decide which to choose they are all so gorgeous.
Anyway enough waffling on and back to my project. I made the box using some Fiskars paper I seem to have had for ages a couple of years I think and then thought I'd make a few little gift cards to put inside it so I used up some off cuts from other projects and found some stamps to match the patterns on the box paper and went to it. This was such a quick project I am definitely going to make more of these- maybe for some friends for friendship day this year- or just because they are such good friends and deserve a sweet gift sometimes.
There are 4 pictures just so you can see the outside and the inside of the box as well as the cute little cards I made- I actually blurred a couple of the greeting stamps when I was stamping but will fix those later I needed to take the pictures so I could post them.
Most of the things I used are self explanatory but if you have any queries please feel free to contact me
Project Ingredients:- Box- Template MTME - see link above; Papers -Fiskars- Love Blossom set , Heart - heidigrace; half pearls, gold cord and flowers are from one of the dollar shops so not sure of brand. In hind sight I think I will take the 2 half pearls I used on the end of the cord off and replace them with a pearl bead- it should give a neater finish.
Cards- each card is just basic 200gsm cardstock and cut to approximately 17cmx 6cm(6 1/2' x2 1/4" ) -then folded in half along the long length. Inks - I used ink pads that I have had for many years and they have no name or colour but the closest I could describe the colours are-pale pink,rose pink,dark pink and maroon, aqua blue and a emerald green, for the greetings I used Stazon Timber Brown. Stamps are from See D's sets one was Garden of Friendship -not sure what the other set was called, the greetings all come from a variety of sets none of which are named-sorry. Ribbons- Francheville, Trim Craft, Value Craft and generic;
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy this project and please feel free to leave a comment as well as check out the other blogs mentioned to see their wonderful creations.
