You've not seen me here really ....

.... because I am supposed to be doing really organised things like wrapping Toad's presents while he is out of the house but ..... just wanted to share this tiny weeny gift box with you that I made for a friend - she is after a new mobile for Christmas and whilst I can't run to buying the phone for her, I can at least chip in to the phone fund, so this is a sort-of money wallet in a box!



Looking at it now I can see that I managed to move the image slightly when I was putting the flowers on.  Bum.  Oh well, if I make sure she has a sherry first she may not notice!

Turned into a postage stamp with an X-Cut die
Box made from First Edition cardstock thanks to Martha Stewart scoring board
Flowers and leaf from Wild Orchid Crafts
Woodware self-adhesive cotton lace
Image painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Markers
Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Pumice Stone and Black Soot

Right, back downstairs to the wrapping ......

Hugs Sxx

Did you get all the presents wrapped then? I've learned that the PRESENT is the important part, 'specially for dudes. You could use tin foil as the wrapper (or an Amazon box) and they are just as pleased as fancy wrapping with a big bow!

Love your sweet gift box. I don't think your friend will notice the flowers being a wee bit off. I like the idea of liquoring her up first though just in case. Hee hee. Such a good friend you are!
