Hope you’re all enjoying the week. With the 2 bank holidays, it’s put me totally out as far as days are concerned – it’s hard to believe it’s nearly the weekend already! Have you any plans? The girls have a couple of parties so that’ll keep us busy.
Last Friday night I held an Open House event for the recently launch Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini, and since it was the Jubilee weekend I had a bit of a theme going with my decorations for the Open House. I forgot to take photos as always as I was so busy with my guests, but I did remember to photograph the little Gift Boxes I made for them as a thank you gift for attending:
Union Jack Gift Boxes! I was so pleased with how these turned out. The basic box is created using the Petal Con die, cut down to create a flat-based box. I cut these from Pacific Point card and made them up. I then made 2 Belly Bands for each box, the bands made from Whisper White card and then Real Red Satin Ribbon wrapped around it. I did them so you can slip both belly bands off and get into the box without trashing it.
I finished the second belly band with a little bow.
Too cute! I hope you like them. Tomorrow I hope to have the card we made at the Open House, fingers crossed!
Thanks for stopping by today. Val. XX
