Everyone says thank you in their own way. Me, well I like to do favor boxes or cartons. A little bit of words along with a special treat. I always want to give something special and to be honest, the budget won’t often allow that. Hence my love of paper crafting. I always have more time than money, so my time can show my gratitude. It isn’t that people expect, I just enjoy doing it.
This carton was made with a whole sheet of sahara sand card stock. I pulled out the trusty simply scored scoring tool and it came together in no time. I actually made this one while having a lovely chat with my mom and dad. How wonderful summer can be to me. I did do my stamping first, because it does bother me when the stamping skips over the score lines. I know, not a real big deal, but it bugs me. So the stamping first with the Flourishing Phrases large floral image. I stamped and sponged in crumb cake instead of sahara sand to give a more vintage look. So adorable.
The tag was cut with from the frame from the Rose Garden Thinlits set. It it so much fun to put such pretty things together. The smaller floral image was stamped first, the thank you second and then die cut. Of course the whole project enjoyed lots of sponging. I wrapped the top of the carton with gold metallic thread, popped a tricky bow through a bitty hole I punched and topped it all with a large basic pearl. I refrained from putting those all over the box, I made myself keep it more simple. So there you go!
Have a creative day!
