My Dear Friend

Hi all! I totally forgot to post this little project I did last month for the birthday of my best friend, Maria. I had the card done a while ago for a JUGs challenge, so I decided to use a My Time Made Easy template to make a box for her gift to go along with the card. Here's the complete project.You can see the information about the card here (but I will say the sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps). The box is made from the template The Flapper from My Time Made Easy. (I'm always amazed at how big these boxes are when completed.) I used perfect plum cardstock for the base and barely banana for the flap. The dp is the same as the one on the card.I used the floral image from So Sentimental to decorate the front of the flap, and a pretty pink satin ribbon to tie it up.I used a nestie on the top of the box and a sentiment also from So Sentimental . I swirled some perfect plum in on the inside of the shape and added some Prima roses that I also used on the card. I placed a Pandora charm inside the box. Such a pretty presentation and Maria loved it! We had a good laugh, however, because I put the card and this pretty box in the most ugly gift bag I had on hand! She couldn't believe I did that! LOL!!!

I have some other projects and cards that I had forgotten to post that you will see on my blog in the next few days. But tomorrow I have a special Just Us Girls post for our technique challenge. Please stop by then. I'll have some bridal shower favors to show you on Sunday that I made for a friend's shower. Too cute (but I stole the idea from another friend). I also made my friend's wedding invitations that really were beautiful, if I do say so myself! So make sure you stop by often! Have a great weekend!
