Another little creation I made over the weekend.
Good morning 🙂
I have the Boutique Boxes Designer Printed Kit. It comes with 8 little boxes — perfectly sized for gift cards. Don’t you just love little boxes?? It’s easier if I just include the picture:

So this is the kit and it’s less than $10! Crazy right? It not only includes the adorable little boxes (8 of them! I mentioned that, right? lol) it also includes little note cards and a sheet of diecut shapes! Now my personality is more of the: Do the kit exactly as outlined and don’t deviate from the instructions no matter what! But… I’m 40 now *Gasp!* (I wrote that fast so I didn’t think about it for too long) and following the rules doesn’t have the same appeal anymore — midlife crisis? or maybe I’m finally loosening up? I’m getting off topic here.. Focus, fooocccus!
Ok, so I had the corners from my explosion box and decided to “wrap” one corner of the box, I added a butterfly using the butterfly punch (no kidding!) Decorative label punch for the label and overlay.
And then I got out my Fancy Friends Kit.. and here it is (cute, “eh!”?):
Fancy Friends Kit
I stamped the overlay using the ink spots (daffodil delight & old olive) that come with the kit (Fancy Friends, not Boutique Boxes) and I used the little flowers and the bling — gotta have bling! The stamps come from a limited edition Sale-A-Bration stamp set called, Bloomin’ Marvelous.
Which reminds me.. Sale-A-Bration is ending on the 22nd!! less than 2 weeks until it’s over for another year. Get your orders in soon so you can benefit from free stuff!! That’s FREE stuff people.. FREE — Hmm.. have I mentioned you get FREE STUFF when you order before the 22nd (and spend at least $60) — still FREE stuff! OK — I’m hopping off my soap-box!
Have a super week!
