I made this gift box from an empty camembert box the type made from really thin wood type stuff stapled together it was a git awkward to cover but I got there. I made it to put a pressie in for my sisters birthday can't say what just in case you never know if she gets near her computer better safe than sorry. I used magnolia as I'd used magnolia on the birthday card I've made for her so I thought it would co-ordinate well and blue so its similar colours and as its one of my favourites turquoise. The flowers are from my newly bought bargin (see previous post) and I've added glitter around the petal edges and it just makes thm look a bit more special. I'm getting into flowery embellishments slowly, don't know why its taken me so long as I love flowers and have loads in the garden and house too. Well I digress again, Tilda is wearing a very special party top covered in shimmery glitter well it is the christmas party season and even the turquoise paper I covered the box in has giltter in it, my sis loves her bling , only she likes the real thing, don't we all?
The tag I made to match , not sure how or where to attatch it maybe I'll get her some flowers and attatch it to them but as its a matching set I can enter the challenge at secret crafters saturday challenge.
Easy craft projects have a challege to make something turqoise so as thats my predoninant colour I can enter that challenge too.
Magnolia down under's theme is bedazzle and I have a fair amount of bling if you look closely so I will enter that challenge too.
On the Magnolia subject I could enter this into the Just Magnolia monthly challenge as its a gift box for one and only special sister, and there theme is something for someone special.
Finally I will enter this set into the passion for promarkers challenge of something for christmas or new year thats not a card. Happy crafting and happy sunday everyone!
