I made a new card and gift box. The thing is it is a card and gift box in one. I’m not really sure what to call it though --- is it a Card Gift Box? A Gift Box Card? A Gift Card Box? Decisions, decisions, decisions.
So, the idea came to me because I have been making hair bows, as well as adding the bows to my cards, using the Brilliant Bow Maker Classic Kit
. I wanted to do a card and make a box for the hair bows. Tada! Why not make one? So, here is what I came up with. I still have to do some refining but it turned out exactly how I thought about it.
So, here is the front of the card/box. I chose to use one of my Sugar Nellie images. She’s brushing her hair so I thought it was perfect for the hair bows.
I used a McGill butterfly punch and punched one in yellow and orange and then added Ranger Stickles
Here is a close up of my image. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black
onto Cryogen White Cardstock
and then colored her with Copics
I added a orange carnation, roses
, and leaves (another McGill punch).
Here is a side profile of the card box. I used my Scor-pal
to make this and assembled it with Scor-tape
Here is the inside. For my circles I used Spellbinders Big Scallop Circles Large
and Spellbinders Big Scallop Circles small
. The sentiment is a JustRite Stamper
I placed the hair bows on a removable piece of cardstock.
Well, what do you think? Would love to know what you would call this. I'll post the instructions in a few days for those that would like to make one. I want to refine it some, it has a few little kinks that I need to work out!
Thanks for stopping by!
