Gift Box for Mary!

My wonderful stepmom, Mary, just had a birthday so I made her one of my favorite little paper templates. The little 3" gift box. It is so quick and simple!

Inside the box I put a small gift, a photo of her new grandson, Owen!

The steps to creating this box are very simple.  Here is the template for the box. Use your score-pal to make the folds.

Then I stamped a tree image on the same patterned paper I used for the top of the box. You can either use your versamark inkpad or go over it with your versamark pen like I did. Then I sprinkled blue embossing powder over and heat set it. I used my awesome swivel craft knife to cut the tree out.

Next, I stamped a little scene with the supplies you see below.

For the top of the box, I used my nestabilities and die cut 2 shapes. I stamped a flower image with my versamark inkpad and embossed it with the same blue powder. I also stamped her name and added some pink stickles.
Then I assembled everything with my score tape and wrapped the little frame in tissue paper and gave it to her! She liked it a bunch!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been a while since I've posted and I'm sorry, but I have some really cool stuff in the pipeline that you'll get to see very soon!  I'm so excited to share it with you and I can't wait!  I'm working on 3 paper projects that you will get to see very shortly after Thanksgiving!  Then after the first of the year there will be a **big** surprise!
So for now, I wanted just to take a little minute to say Happy Thanksgiving!  Here is a pic of our (not so little, 17lb) kitty, Cornbread, sitting by the front porch!  He's our yellow coon!

See you after Thanksgiving!!  Meow!
