I hope you are all taking advantage of the wonderful sunny weather on this long weekend - I have to work tomorrow and Monday but it's beautiful out there today!
I have popped indoors from the sunshine to make this post as I'm hoping not to miss the Crazy4Challenges quest this week which is to make an Easter gift. My family have not exchanged chocolate eggs for a few years now but I wanted to make a little something for my Mum so came up with this...
I thought it was a good way to use up some of my little bits of stash. The template was a magazine freebie from absolutely ages ago but I'm glad I kept it as the box was so easy to make.
I've decorated it with a stamped sentiment alongside two Meljens Designs digital sentiments (coloured with Promarkers) paper flowers and brads from my stash and some sticky ribbon from the last DoCrafts goody bag.
The little flowers on the inside flaps were punched from the main paper and adhesive gems added to the centres.
My Mum loves butterflies so I hope she loves this, especially the treat inside!
My job for tonight is to make a significantly less girlie one for my Dad!!
I'm entering my little gift box into the following challenges:
