Pink & Brown

I saw this cute box idea on a blog
I follow and went to SplitcoastStampers.com
and got the tutorial, but can't for the life
of me remember who I got the idea from :(
If it was YOU - thanks bunches!!!
It's another easy-peasy fun to do project.
Again, I made it simple as it will
just be my "prototype" for a
possible future class project.
I plan to do more boxes and those
I will make a little more elaborate.
I always try to make something a little
more "plain" the first time out
of the box (no pun intended LOL)
so that I have it for a sample to work from.
Here's my prototype.
The box was created using pink and brown CS from SU.
I attached the pink and brown decorative panel
together and then used a Sizzix (SU) embossing folder
to give it texture.
The greeting is also from SU from the Oval All Stamp Set
and punched with the SU Label punch.
The brown velvet brad was from Creative Imaginations.

Here's a close-up of the embellies.

The inside of the box has space for candy!  Yippee...
The tutorial shows 5 Hersey Kisses,
but, unfortunately, I ate them all before I made the box.
The greetings are more SU images
and as you can see, there's a slot for a gift card.
The decorative "slot" w as using the
SU Labels punch.
I also opted to use a corner rounder on the pizza box
type cover and used a Velcro dot to hold the
box together.  You can see that it "pouches the box out"
and for future boxes, I would use a ribbon tied around
the box as a closure instead.
I'd also go a little fancier with my inside too
depending on what the occasion was.
Hope you enjoyed my "prototype" for this fun project.

  1. Such a pretty project - love the brown and pink combination! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Just gorgeous! Love the sentiment inside too! I have to admit, I ate almost a whole bag of kisses after I made mine too!

    1. Gerlinde - I thought I saw them on your blog, guess I didn't go back far enough when I was rechecking!!! You're were beautiful...

  3. Looks great and what a fun gift for someone.

  4. what a fun gift box - are you sending it to me, Brenda? LOL as if I need more chocolate. Really textures in the embellishments and dry embossing, too! So sorry I have not been able to visit your blog regularly this month - the bingo game is taking all my time and energy - and will until it is completed.


I love hearing your comments - thank you!
