Living in a box




This, when complete, will be one of my mother's birthday gifts. I was given something similar to this (shop bought) when I was small girl and I think back now and realise that I have always loved pretty paper, ribbons and bows and never lost that little girl feeling when creating or receiving gifts like these.






And the inside when truly finished ( I will post soon) with some cards, tags and some note cards will, I think, look lovely.

Have a happy day & see you tomorrow xx

Stampin Up - Stamps: Fresh cuts and best yet (hostess set), card stock:old olive & pretty in pink. Ribbon: Regal rose grosgrain, pretty in pink taffeta & linen thread. Paper: Tea party designer series paper. Misc: hardware from hodgepodge kit. Other white embossing powder and small adhesive pearls from the paper mill shop.
