SUOC53 - Boxes and Bags!

I really had fun with this SUO Challenge, because now that summer is ending (it is going to end, isn't it?...soon?...please?), my favorite time of year is beginning - Fall and Winter!  And with those seasons come the opportunity to bake and make all kinds of gifts (both baked and crafty)....which gives me a chance to make neat little packages to put the gifts and baked goods in!

This was a quick box using a flocked window sheet from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP. I thought the Lacy Brocade embossing folder looked a lot like the flocked design on the sheets, so the Brushed Silver cardstock was embossed with it. Add a little ribbon & a snowflake tag, and there's a lovely presentation for the set of greeting cards inside!

HERE'S the tutorial.

  1. Gorgeous!! Every single thing about it is beautiful! I know that the sparkle in person is even more spectacular! Might need to get the deets on the box for CASEing.

  2. Wow! This is stunning! I love how you embossed the silver to match the DSP!Do you have a tutorial to make this type of box? Thanks for sharing it!

  3. What a pretty box. Love the embossed silver with the flocked window sheet.

  4. This is a gorgeous box, Cindy. Any chance of sharing the instructions? I just love the embossed top. This definitely makes a very elegant gift.

  5. Stunning! So elegant. The red flocking reminds me of the wallpaper my grandmother had in her dining room so many years ago. A great memory.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
