I just love the images in this month's challenge. So many things drew me in, I even made a silver tassel with the new silver cord from the Stampin' Up! 2015 holiday catalog. But alas, will have to save that for another project.
I decided to use the florals in my design. I loved the baby's breath and wanted to try to create them! I made small pompoms with white baker's twine and mounted them to the leaves from the Bouquet Bigz L Die from Stampin' Up! The orange flower was also made from the Bouquet Bigz die.
The added some color to the corrugated cardboard using a brayer and Tangeriine Tango ink. I also colored white cotton ribbon with Night of Navy ink.
The greeting is from the Endless Thanks stamp set and I die cut the label using the Notetag Punch.
The pillow box die is the new Square Pillow Box Die Thinlit from the Stampin' Up 2015 Holiday Catalog. I decided to use the Hardwood stamp image to give a rustic feel to the box and to make a nice backdrop for the flowers. I stamped the hardwood image using versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I like how the box turned out and I can't wait to give it to a co-worked who helped repair a necklace I bought!
Hope you enjoyed my gift box! I had a lot of fun making it.
I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
