Mum's Day

I know it is a few days early but I made my Mum a small gift for Mother's day on Sunday and wanted to share this with you.
I used the gift box tutorial by Sheryl here. It is the same one I used for my husband's Valentine's chocolate surprise here. This time I just changed the colours and added a die cut flower, gems, ribbons and pearls. I used this week colour combo at Colourq.

The front of the box looks like this:

And the back:

And I am now off to buy some chocs to fill it with!

I will be entering this into the challenges at:
Colourq (colour combo)
Allsorts (say it with flowers)
Mums Craft Shop (Mums the word)

Have a good day x


  1. Hi Sandie! This is LOVELY! Your mother is going to love it! What a great idea to use a die cut, and the gems are the perfect finishing touch! It's so pretty! I love the sentiment on the back too!
