And the prize sponsor this week is Nikky who made these papers!! Before you get all excited and head over to her shop to buy these, they are actually not released until 21 July where they will be launched on Create and Craft - sorry for being a tease! And funnily enough, you'll be able to see this gift box on that very show!
I've made a gift box for a new baby - ideal size to put some titchy socks in or a rattle. I've used an old chocolate gift box from Thorntons as the template - I had to join two sheets of card together due to the pattern placement but this was easy enough to do. The backing papers are from the Doodle Tweets collection, taken from the soon to be released Candy Doodles cd, as is the little birdie tag which I've cut out, added an eyelet and attached it to the bag with some lovely mint green organza ribbon.
The 'frill' around the bottom of the box is also on the cd - you could say it is paper ribbon, already scalloped. So I simply cut it out and added it to the base. I don't think the photos show the glittery flower centres, but they are!
