Just For You Gift Set

Hello Crafty Friends! I'm here with Team DCWV today to show you a couple projects I made using one of the newest releases that will be making it onto Joann Stores across the nation!!

Both projects were made using gorgeous paper from Peri & Peach Stack.

Supplies Used
Peri & Peach Stack (DCWV)
Lori Whitlock's Scalloped Gable Box (Sizzix)
Eileen Hull's Kitchen Labels (Sizzix)
Lynda Kanase's Photo Banners (Sizzix)
Sticker Maker (Xyron)
Tape Runner (Xyron)
ColorBox Blends- Melon (Clearsnap)
Flowers (Maya Road)
Silk Ribbon
3D Dots 
Clear Liquid Adhesive

On top of this being stack being filled with pretty patterns and foil, I love that these paper are all double sided as well. 

For today's project I decided to use this beautiful pattern with a dark blue midnight blue with pink and white flowers. The flip side to this pattern is a very feminine white and pink flower/ sunburst pattern.

To make my box I used my Lori Whitlock Gable bBx die and die cut 2 pieces. Then, die cut 2 more scalloped handles from the reverse side of the paper for a bit of contrast.

To attach I simply ran the handles through my sticker maker and attached to the top.

Then folded the box panels on the premade crease lines and used my tape runner on the flaps and attached them together.

I used crinkled silk ribbon to tie a simple bow and attached my tulle flower. I glued the flower just under the bows not allowing the recipient to get in and out of the box with ease.

Another wonderful perk to many DCWV stack is that they include the awesome sheet full of cut outs, sentiments, and journaling tags.

I found this gorgeous one that says "hello, beautiful" in gold foil! The shine is just stunning!!

I used one of my Eileen Hull Kitchen Labels to die cut it out then attached foam adhesive to the back and mounted it to the front of my box.

This box is almost too pretty to open! It's a good thing I put a special gift that is equally beautiful inside to make it worth opening! LOL

And since I'm gift giving, you know I have to include a card!!

The gable box used less than a sheet a paper to make. So I used the leftover from the same sheet to make a coordinating card.

I cut my biggest piece to 4"x 5.25" (A2 card mat size). The dark blue strip was cut at 1.5"x 5.25". The Pennant flag measure 1"x 5". The sentiment strip was cut directly out of the same sheet the "hello, beautiful" was from. No measuring involved. 

I layered the pieces onto a standard A2 (4.25"x 5.5") sized hit card base, simply attaching with tape runner.

I die cut 3 of the bigger leaves from the Lynda Kanase Photo Banner set from this soft periwinkle blue and white polkadot paper (also from the Peri & Peach Stack).

 I also die cut 6 stemmed leaves out of peach and gold foiled paper. Then inked the edges of the leaves with Melon ColorBox Blends applicator.

I attached the leaves onto the card using clear liquid adhesive and topped with paper roses.

Finally, I attached a little bling to the lower right corner.

I really love how the little pop of periwinkle just leaps off the card.

I really love how this gift set came out! Very feminine and elegant!!

I hope you've enjoyed today's project!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!!

Until next time...
