Today the My Time Made Easy design team is posting their year in review projects. I chose to use the A Box is a Box template. I have a Christening to go to in a few weeks for my husband's cousin's adopted daughter. I haven't seen her yet, but I hear she's cute, sweet, and super tiny! I love this box because it has a cut-out in the lid. The original template has a tree, leaf, flower, or snowflake to choose from, but you can use any cut file that you desire. I wanted a cross for my gift box, so I purchased it from the Silhouette store. It worked perfectly! I edged the lid with a lacy trim that's a Martha Stewart punch. The digital paper I'm using on this project is from Grammy's Pretty Patterns.
The pretty bow was made using the Bow Tied cut file. I love that bow and the green polka dot paper! I finished it off with a pretty heart button.
While I was in the Silhouette store, I realized I had some money on a gift card that I got when I purchased my Silhouette. So I decided to purchase this card base. I saw it on this blogpost today, and thought it would be accompany the box nicely. The cross is the cut-out from the box. I layered it onto the Cornice Trimmed Oval cut file, and added liquid pearls. I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I stamped "Congratulations" from the Senitmental Occasions stamp set.
The entire team, including our four new members, is all posting today. Stop by these blogs.
Thanks for stopping by today!
