Flowering Fields Gift Box and Cards
Todays project came about due to my new love of colouring in (see this post) Due to ill health, I often have to rest, and colouring in is a great way to keep occupied. I will stamp a whole lot of images (using Archival Ink, perfect for colouring) then over time colour them in. The only problem is finding a use for all of the stuff I have coloured!
I decided to use some of the Flowering Fields images that I had coloured using Stampin' Write markers to create some gift cards. Kraft provided a great base cardstock.
I was thinking they would make a cute gift, so made a little matching box.
Because kraft comes in 12 inch size, it is easy to make up a simple box and lid using two sheets, you just need to make the inner "square" of the lid about 5mm bigger than the "inner square" of the base.
I decorated the lid using the coordinating Wildflower Fields paper, and the lid is held on with a band of cardstock decorated with a different design of the same paper series. The "for you" sentiment is a clipped version of the largest stamp in the Botanicals For You set.
The box holds 10 gift cards, and makes a cute little present! It is also made with 3 FREE Sale-a-Bration products; the Wildflower Fields paper, the Flowering Fields stamp set and the Botanicals for You stampset! The only cost is in the cardstock and ink!
