Girly Gifts

Happy Friday,

Yesterday Sheryl posted her first tutorial and demonstrated how to make a small gift box. It was a great lesson- you can catch this tutorial by clicking here.

So after watching this I had to have a go. Here is my gift box to hold a small pair of earrings:

The front of the box has a small card attached to it and at the back I have made a small slot for a very small card:

And a side view of the box:

 And a back view of the box with the small gift card slotted in the pocket I made:

And both the card on the front and the small gift card at the back open up and are like this:

I think this makes a lovely present. I think I will be making a Valentine's gift box for Callum that has a few (just a few!) chocolates-watch this space.

I am going to enter this box into the following challenges:

Come and get it challenge -anything but a card
kaboodledoodles -something girly
scrap-creations -pink, red and white

Have a good weekend x


  1. Oh my goodness how SWEET this is!!! so glad Sheryl's tutorial inspired you to create this!!! Wasn't it an easy and fun one to make??!?! I LOVE the sweet colors, your cards and HOW SWEET to add a pair of earrings inside. That will make such a special gift!!!

    If you create a Valentine box, be sure to enter it into our month long love challenge at Freshly Brewed Challenges!

    Big Hugs!

  2. What a nice box! I like how you have the card attached to it on the front. So cute!

    I stopped by to thank you for your sweet comments you left on my blog. To answer your question, the sentiment on my card that says, "when I want to see LOVE defined I look at you". Yes, that is a Tim Holtz stamp. It doesn't seem to be in stock at CropStop at the moment though. I like it too so you probably haven't seen the last of it. ;-)

  3. Hi Sandie! I'm so very excited about seeing your pretty gift box for earrings! What a lovely presentation! I love that you embossed your cardstock! You are so very sweet to link my tutorial! Thank you!
    I'm looking forward to seeing your Valentine box!
    I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
    Warm Hugs, Sheryl

  4. Wonderfully done! Love that you embossed the card stock first to make your box!

    Thanks for joining us this week for the Challenge at Come and Get it!
