Flower gift box


And welcome to another Monday morning, I am headed to bed shortly...I may have to take a short walk before bed - the weather is so pretty this am!!!!

I was planning on going for a ride on the motorcycle yesterday with the DH but overslept and didn't wake until he was about to roll out the door....he didn't want to wake me, knowing that I had to work last night.... both the kids were volunteering at a function for ROTC all afternoon, so I headed off to the craft room (well after sitting on the porch with my tea and the computer to check email and do some blog surfing - can you say Ahhhhh :).

So I did up this box to match a couple cards I made, both of which is for a gift. (I accually plan to do 2 more similar boxes this week - one for my MIL who has a Birthday coming up and while I am at it, one for my Mom for Mother's Day....).

This is a cigar box that I covered with some pretty DP. The main image is from Flourishes - colored with copics. I just love all the flower stamps from Flourishes!!!

I am entering this for 2 challenges over at Flourishes -

One - The Timeless Tuesday challenge was to use stitching.....Well my stitching is faux stitching and kinda , well not straight....but if I had to accually use the sewing machine then you would really see some messed up stitches.....(me an sewing machine don't get along so well :).

And the other is for this months release challenge over at Flourishes for 'a cut above' to use dies cuts or a cut edge or border. I used a Spellbinders die cut for the main image and a MS punch for the 2 yellow scalloped borders.
The inside of the box is lined with yellow felt and a bit of cream colored trim, which I also used on the cover and for the 'pull' to open the box.

All for today!!!!

Take Care
