Little Gift Box

Hi All,

Oh lordy, what a lazy crafter I've been - it's four weeks since I  last posted, oh well, I've no excuses really, just haven't had the inclination! (actually I've had severe insomnia which probably hasn't helped but fingers crossed I'm getting over that now).

Anyways, the reason I'm here today is for the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More.  Our hostess is Fiona who has chosen the theme "A FLORAL PROFUSION" (create something which showcases your handmade flowers).

I've made a wee gift box ....




I made two flowers to adorn the box ....



I used this tutorial for the ribbon flower and the cream felt one was made with the Tim Holtz tattered pine cone die. The felt leaves are TH Garden Greens die.

Our sponsors for this challenge are ...


I'd also like to enter my wee box into the Let's Craft and Create challenge, which is "Punches and Dies".

Hope you're all enjoying the spring weather, it's been a bit of a mixed bag here, still a bit cool for my liking, though hubby and I had a lovely little walk round Castle Fraser last weekend ...

ever get the feeling you're being watched!

think this must've been an old cold store


Sorry for the long post - I guess it's either a feast or a famine!!

Thanks for popping in.

Take care

Suze xx

Hi Suze. I would never have thought to use the pine cone die to make a flower. Right up my street. Used to live in Kemnay so know Castle Fraser well.
