Birthday Bouquet for You - Gift Bag and Gift Box!

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to show you this cute little box and gift bag that I made a little while ago for my friend's birthday.  She loves flowers, so what better than to make these using the gorgeous Cherry On Top Cardstock and Cherry on Top DSP from the new Spring/Summer Catalogue as well as the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (from the Sale-A-Bration brochure).  The Sale-A-Bration is still running until 31st March, so be sure to grab yourself a last minute bargain by clicking on any of the links!

I punched out the Hearts with a Sweetheart Punch and the little flowers using  the Petite Petals Punch from the left over DSP - (waste not want not hehe).   Anyone else keep their off cuts to use on other project? ;)

As you can see the box is perfect to fit 4 small candles inside.  The gift bag was used using the Gift Bag Punch Board - a definite must for your crafty cupboard as you can make gift bags in just a couple of minutes :)  wayhay, extra time for crafting then! hehe.

Crafty Cupcakes Blog Hop - Spring 2016

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for joining us on our Crafty Cupcakes Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the Stampin' Up!® Spring/Summer and Annual Catalogues with the emphasis on SPRING. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Knowing the Theme that we were going to be using, all that was left was to decide what to make, and which of the fabulous products to showcase.  I decided to keep it simple and take advantage of Mother's Day falling on this weekend and make a Card together with a little gift box holding some tasty, tantalising choccies hidden inside :)  We all love to be spoilt now and again don't we!


As you will see, I have made a tiered card which when folded flat measures 6" x 4".  It would fit perfectly into an envelope (without the Butterfly), but I couldn't resist using the new Butterfly Thinlets Dies that arrived this week ;)

As I mentioned, I made a little gift box to accompany the card which I've filled with some tasty little choccie treats.....  perfect!

Thanks very much for visiting our Cupcakes Blog Hop today.  I hope you've enjoyed it and like what you see!  Click on one of the buttons below to Hop Along to the next Blog,
