Today’s project just makes me long for brighter and warmer weather and seeing beautiful flowers in the sun…
In the run up to Christmas I made SO many milk carton style boxes for candles, chocolates etc to sell at craft fairs that I think I sickened myself, as this is the first one I’ve made since then. It will always be my favourite style of box though.
For this version I used So Saffron card (part of the Subtles range) and Garden Impressions designer series paper and I think they compliment the Yankee Candle I chose pretty well, don’t you? You can view my previous instructions for a Christmas version of this box by clicking here.
To decorate this one I simply stamped the Thank You sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto So Saffron card. I used my Layering Circle to cut this out, along with a Night of Navy scalloped circle that is just a fraction larger. I glued both together an then onto the front of the box.
I used Night of Navy medium baker’s twine to thread through the holes in the top of the box and tied it in a bow to close the box nice and tightly. I thought it needed a bit more though so I punched a few flowers from scraps of card using the Bitty Blooms punches. I added some to the box and enclosed each end of the twine between two of them too…
This would make a nice little thank you gift from all sorts of reason, I’m already thinking ahead to end of term Teacher Gifts – all crafters have to plan well ahead, lol.
