Hello everyone how are you all? Well its our last weekend before santie comes.........are you getting excited? I am soooooo excited, you would think I was 5 years old lol.
Today I have something that my youngest son asked me to make for his girlfriend Nikita. Its a giftbox to put his present in. He's brought a beautiful gold & diamond necklace bless him, he's a good saver, he just gets his £20 pound a week pocket money & £5 goes towards his contract phone, I pay the rest as the Iphones are dearer.
Anyways here is what I made............sorry about pics, 1 of my daylight bulbs blew & only found out I had spares after Nikita had gone home last night, with her present, so cant take anymore pics :0(
I have used 2 Magnolia stamps as Jake didnt want it to be christmassy so she could have it as a keepsake all year round.
I have used 'Tilda With Cozy Heart' & 'I Love You' both from the Sweet Crazy Love collection 2012.
This is the inside, this is just a giftbox I had in my drawer, its a pink one thats gone into it.
The link for this fab tutorial is HERE. The only thing I did different was instead of using one piece of paper, I used 2 papers & a layer of card in between as I wanted a stronger feel to it.
Jake chose the sentiment to go in the bottom of the box part which I put onto a doily. The images were coloured with copics. I also thought I would show you a pic of the necklace he has brought her, its so beautiful. Not sure if she will be wearing it to school though when they go back lol.
All the flowers are from WOC. Lace & ribbon are from my stash. I also added a Pearl Heart in the centre of the 'O' & a Scalloped Pearl in the top corner.
The papers are Magnolia 'White Lace' Lazy Summer Days collection & 'Angel Love' Once Upon A Time collection, sorry cant find the link for this one, I've had this for a long time.
I also added some gorgeous 'Organza Rose' Trim along the bottom &some 'Cheese Cloth' behind the image. I also used a Magnolia 'So Wrapped Lovely' tag inside. The heart was cut from a Marianne die & I used a Joy Crafts die for the spine.
Well thats it I'm off to carry on catching up with you all before I go the hospital. So if I dont get round to you this morning I will be round tonight my lovelies.
Thank you for stopping by & thank you for all your support & lovely comments.
Take care & hope you have a lovely weekend mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
