Little Gift Box

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Thank you for pressing the button that brings you to my little corner of Blogland.  I hope you like what you see, leave a comment and come back again soon.
I got the idea for the project I am showing you today from the Blog of a very talented lady   If you get a chance pop over and see the wonderful things she does.  Lizzie made her box far bigger than I needed.   I adjusted mine to suit, which was very easy.
Elaine`s daughter Gillian has lived with her partner for a while, have furnished there home as they wanted with all the things they needed.  They requested money for their Wedding Gift.  They are Honeymooning in Florida so for us it was Dollars.  Right!! how do you make some Dollars look like a gift?  For me it was to make a box, here is what I did:-

I made the box to fit the Die Cut I used.  I got 10 of these Die Cuts on EBay some time ago and shared them with Hazel.  I have used them for standard Wedding Cards up till this one
Navy Card for the actual box, that was the colour of the Bridesmaid Dresses
White Organza Ribbon from Mieflower
The little inside box was made to fit the folded Dollars
I did fit a nice verse onto the inside front flap
The White & Silver Card for decoration was bought in the States.  60 sheets 4 of  each design, stunning card 280 maybe 300Gsm for $14.99. It is beautiful to work with  
Might as well show you the back while I am at it
I put it in a large Cellophane Card Bag,cut off the extra bits and made a parcel.  I tied the parcel with the White Ribbon and a nice Triple Bow.  Sorry no picture of the parcel, forgot to take it   ...   silly me

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  10. Not just a box Patricia but a work of art, so very clever and really beautiful too, making it a wonderful keepsake for the new Mr and Mrs.
    Lets hope Sue Wilson sees the same lovely card while she is visiting her Mom and gets the urge to import some via Creative Expressions for us all.

  11. This is stunning Patricia. Such a wonderful design, a great way to wrap some money. I love the wonderful die cut and beautiful colours too.

  12. Stunning - luv it - the die cut is beautiful but probably an economical way to purchase ready cut ones from e-bay rather than the die itself xx the card is absolutely gorgeous - worth another visit to the states to replenish and what a beautiful gift rather than giving the dollars in a money envelope xx bet they were well chuffed with it xx by the way love your personal stamp xx GailT xx

  13. This is gorgeous Patricia, beautiful colours and love the box/card..
