I gave this trio of gifts to our friend Gill for her birthday.
The papers I used are from the Pebbles Inc. 'Special Delivery, Girl' collection. First I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make a gift bag to hold a pair of earrings. Gill loves rose scented bathing products and I found some Argan Moroccan Rose Bath Soak which smells lovely. However, the packaging is functional rather than pretty so I decided to cover the bottle front with the same paper I'd made the bag from. As it was going to be used in a steamy bathroom I then covered the paper with a wrap of acetate. I added a tag to the bottle and wrote what the bottle contained on the tag - but that only occurred to me after I'd taken the photos!
While shopping in Wilko recently I saw some 4" x 4" pine square photo box frames and I thought they'd be great for putting a dimensional crafty something inside. I painted the frame with white acrylic paint and decided to place a dimensional daisy inside. I die cut eleven daisies from white linen effect CS, edged each daisy with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, stacked the flower layers together and added a yellow button to the centre. I die cut two leaves from Wild Wasabi CS, edged both leaves with Wild Wasabi ink and shaped the leaves. I placed the polka dot paper inside and adhered the leaves. I then ruffled all the petals to make the daisy really dimensional and attached the daisy inside.
Here's a closer look at the daisy.
Here's a photo of the box frame from a different angle to better show the depth and dimension. The frame stands up by itself or can be hung up. I plan on snaffling a few more of these frames so I can have more dimensional crafty fun!
