For a really Great Friend

November 12, 2009 at 9:56 pm 2 comments

I wanted to make a special thankyou gift for one of my dear friends, Tilly, who has been helping me out with lots of stamping lately!

We have been doing lots of stamping together and she has helped me make my swaps for Regionals and Team Day and helped me at a recent class as well, so I wanted to give her a little something to show her how much I appreciate her and thank her for how wonderful she is!

I decided to use the template for the gift box that we made at Team Day last week with my favourite stamp set – Great Friend. I reduced the template in the printer so it was a smaller box that fit on an A4 sheet. I made the box using a Cameo Coral sheet and decorated it with the Walk in the Park DSP.

I also made a Card Box using a design that the lovely and hilarious Bonnie, from the US, demonstrated at Regionals. It involved making a shallow box with some walls designed to separate the box into four sections. I made my box a bit larger than the one that she demonstrated – it is a 6″ x 6″ box.  Then I used the Great Friend stamp set to make some little 3″ x 3″ cards, which I put in two of the sections and some 2″ x 3″ tags. In the last section, I added some Kiwi Kiss ribbon to use with the tags. I wrapped the box up and tied it with some Baja Breeze ribbon and added a little tag with a butterfly with some half pearls to the front.

      Thanks Sarah! It’s always nice to make something special for a friend! I think she liked it too!
