I just LOVED making this box !

Click on the link to come and join in !

Polkadoodles and Studio 12

My daughter-in law is 40 soon !!
So I thought I would make a box for her pressie.
Of course its Jewellery !!!

I used paper to line and cover the box

AND I made flowers with it too !
The leaves are from a Marianne Die
The box itself I used a Martha Stewart punch 
to make the fancy edge to the top and bottom.

I used a Sizzix die to make the flowers.
Of course I glittered the edges of the layers 
and flowers with my stickles.
The sentiment I printed on my computer.
On all the edges and corners of the papers 
and flowers I used distress inks to make it pop.
A few gems and volia ! done !

I just love this box !! 


  1. I love the vintage feel to your gift box, Lizzie - it reminds me of something my gran would have cherished on her dressing table.
