Yesterday I told you I was going to make a box for a variety of greeting cards I am sending my sister for her birthday. This is what I came up with.
This is a 6x6" box. I used one of the 6x6 Webster's Pages for the top. Strips from a larger piece of Webster's Pages dp were cut to decorate the sides of the bottom of the box. Mulberry flowers were arranged on top of a Martha Stewart punched design. I really love working with these flowers. Some vellum leaves I made, and a few green sprigs from a MS punch, were added under the flowers. Yellow vellum butterflies, from a MS punch, were added. Pink pearls from Kaiser Crafts were added. All these supplies are from Joan's Gardens.
A birthday greeting from one of the new JustRite stamp sets "Birthday Centers" and a border from the "10 Designer Centers and Borders" was stamped using black ink on yellow card stock. It was cut out with a Nestability. The edge of the lid has lace I received from a great friend (Thanks Eileen). A piece of narrow yellow twine was added to the top of the lace with ScorTape to bring out the yellow to the sides.
The box is filled with a variety of 5.5" square cards. I know she will love this gift so now I'm off to get it in the mail.
Thanks for visiting again today.
