I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend ahead. I am home alone today. My husband and his brothers are off to see a house they own to try to decide what to do with it. My plan is to work on the card I am making for my husband's special birthday this year. It is quite complicated and will take me a while to complete. It is okay for me to share about it here as he never looks at my blog. He is very supportive though.
I bought our friends a small bottle of flavoured gin for Easter. I was looking at the bottle and I decided to make a gift box for it. Then I made a matching card. Finally I made a matching gift bag for the fudge I bought at the same time as the gin.
Lets start with the card.
I have had the Gerberas Dies Pop Out Panel from the John Next Door range from Crafts-Too for a while now. It was easy cutting the panel three times to make this card. I did press each of the petals out.
I decided to make an Opera Box for the gin. I wanted the box to be taller than the original die. So I checked on John's Blog and I cut the card to the length I wanted it and I scored five panels at 5cms each. The Pop Out Panel fitted nicely onto the box panels. I backed each panel with yellow. I made a Gerbera for the top of the box.
On my blog I have a page for making a gift bag. I made this one a little taller so the Pop Out panel would fit.
Our friends were thrilled with the gifts and the card. I know they liked the gin they sent us a photo. I do hope they make some more panels that will fit the Opera Box die set.
