Well the sun is shining in Wales and making me feel very springlike. Oh no does that mean I have to stop crafting to do some spring cleaning!!!!
Today I`m going to share with you an idea for a gift box for Mother's Day.
The box was made from the Crafter's Companion Sweet Treats embossing board. To decorate the edges of the box I punched some strips in grey using the Tonic Dotty Lace Intrica Punch. Because the sides of the box are sloping I was unable to wrap the punched strip around the box. So I cut four strips a little longer than the side of the box and trimmed them to size.
The handle was made from another punched strip approximately 12" in length. I glued this to the inside of the box. The top of the box is decorated with the 3 inner dies from the Intrica Dotty Lace die set. I trimmed the sides off the large die to fit the top of the box. I threaded ribbon through the holes in the small die.
The All my love sentiment is from the Indulgence Affections die range. I finished off with a few roses made from Petal Pairs punches.
Now all you have to do is fill the box with sweets or chocolates and I`m sure it will bring a smile to any Mother's face.
