Elegant Box to Give

Welcome to my blog! This is the 2nd project my customers will be making in my Gifts to Give Class. I love how this looks! I am not trying to brag, but there are times you really love how a project you make turns out. I guess I would have to say part of the reason I love it is because I really love these colors together. I really think it gives it the look of elegance.

I used basic black, real red card stock, and First Edition Specialty designer series paper. I used a stamp from the Fabulous Florets stamp set, along with staz on black ink, and stamped on the designer series paper. You need a Big Shot, the box #2 bigz XL die, little leaves sizzlits die, beautiful butterflies bigz die, vintage wallpaper textured impressions embossing folder, and the 1 3/4" scallop die punch to make this paper creation.

This view gives you a look at how big the box is. I decided that besides putting candy inside, you could use votive candles or maybe 2 small bottles of lotion.
I hope it has inspired you to make one. If you do not have these products you could always purchase them from my blog using the order Stampin' Up! online button.
Please tell me what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks so much.

Now go-n-stamp!!
