Lets get one thing perfectly clear.
On my birthday BRING PRESENTS!
I'm easy. Art supplies, plants, flowers, anything you make yourself, cake-food in general and if all else fails you check my Amazon wish list.
I never had a bridal registry-so humor me.
This weeks Created Byhand Challenge is Buttons/Orange.
Friday night was Ladies Night Out at my LSS
A Stamp Artist Place. Love the ladies, love the food, love the creative energy and sharing. We made gift boxes. I forget what Spellbinders die this is on the top. I mixed orange peel and paprika stickles to get the color I wanted. I got these button stick ons at a yard sale and they fit perfectly with the challenge and this box. All folds created by Scor-pal.

Lift the lid to reveal the butterfly popup and Happy Birthday tags. I used Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio two and one of the elements from the Nested Pennants. Lots more stickles, Stardust pens and distress ink. The sentiment   one of the new 10 tiny tag sentiments- was heat embossed using Versafine sepia and clear powder and Versamark and Ranger embossing tinsel powder.
Plenty of room inside for an additional presents-chocolate, small inkpads-I'm sure you'll think of something!

Thanks for leaving a comment-maybe you know what set the die on the top comes from- and please post your own entry!

  1. that's a really pretty box. Lots of very nice details, interesting colors.

    Beats me what die that is. It almost looks like a Boss Kut die or even a Sizzix die I'm not seeing it in my minds eye as a Spellbinder's die.

  2. this box design has been around a long time- might make a good QF project of the week
    I think the die is one of the elements in the pendants-it got separated from it's box.


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
