These are just some of the recipe ingredients from Dorcas' project that I elected to use to create this gift box...
Patterned Paper – Stripes and mini print
Colors – Blue, Brown and Green
Embellishments – flowers
Tools – Border punches and die cuts
Techniques – other paper box
Theme – Spring
Shapes – Circles scallops
Miscellaneous - Gift Box
With all of the talk of recipes and ingredients, my inspiration happened to come from the kitchen pantry. My project begins with an empty salt box...
I carefully cut off the top and stripped it down to nothing...
added a cover of designer paper...
cut into the extra top piece to cover the lip of the box....
and secured it in placed with sticky tape.
After creating a lid for the top out of nesties circles and scallops (sorry, I didn't pictures of this step), I covered the edges with a coordinating designer paper and created a bouquet for the top with various Prima flowers and stems.
It's just the perfect size for homemade cookies... yum-o!
