Gift Box


Oh my goodness, it's been a busy week! I was so tired when I got home from work yesterday I fell asleep at 5:30 and didn't get up until 6:00 this morning!
I am posting rather late today. I decided my house needed a good cleaning so that is how I spent my Friday. I hope your day was more fun than mine.

Tonight I wanted to share something I made for a birthday present. I just love the Little Monkey stamp storage system and had a couple of the boxes for the system sitting around. I am one of those people that will hang on to anything that could be altered.
I covered the box with some retired SU dp and tired a bow around it. I used the background dots stamp from Gina K's Bold Flowers to stamp on Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and River Rock. I used the Marvy flower punched to punch out different sizes of flowers and layered them. In the center of the flowers are buttons with rust colored fiber tied through the button holes. The sentiment is also from Bold Flowers.

It is suppose snow this weekend so I am hoping to get in a lot of stamping.
Have an awesome weekend!

I am enjoying visiting your blog. This project is great and would you mind telling me where I might get the Marvy punch or punch set? You mentioned punching in various sizes but didn't say if it was one punch or more...thanks! I really like the flowers done like this. SNOW? We have 81 predicted for tomorrow. I don't know if you guys will ever get any Spring! hang in there. I 'm sure we will see some cards that you did while shut in! Thanks for sharing..
