Gift Box

A very dear friend had a birthday over Thanksgiving so Sue and I bought her some beautiful jewellery  from Lord & Taylor and I made this gift box to make the present special. I have this tutorial in my sidebar (slider box), all my instructions are free so please use them and leave me a comment so I can come and see what you've made.

My only alteration was to make the card insert for the earrings and necklace. I cut my cardstock 3 7/8" square and scored in 1/2" on all 4 sides, then just cut away the corners so when the edges were folded down, it made this little insert. The flower on the sleeve was made by stamping two flowers, then cutting them both out. The flower underneath is glued flat to the cardstock and coloured quite roughly. The top flower was coloured with more care and then curled with a bone folder for added dimension. There's some dazzling details around the pearl for a little extra pizzazz!

Stamps : Fabulous Florets
Ink : Lucky Limeade, StazOn
Cardstock : Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Shimmery White, Floral District strips inside the box
Accessories : 1/2 Pearl, Dazzling Details, Blender Pen & Reinker
