Gift Box

Hi, well hope you’re all enjoying this brave new world we all find ourselves in since Brexit – feel any different?  No, neither do I.  So lets carry on and craft!

I’m showing today a make using the fabulous new Grand Create a Card dies.  This one uses ‘Grand Candelabra’ and makes the most fabulous gift box, especially when teamed with white and black centura pearl – yes I did say black centura pearl.  I discovered this when I went to the pre-opening of the Crafters Companion store in Newton Ayecliffe (fab place & absolutely on my must visit list if ever I am up that way again).

The box is made using A3 Centura Pearl and I’ve used construction Acetate to back the die to give the whole thing strength.  The detail round the edge was created using Sara’s Together Forever Signature range and the ‘Graceful Swirls’ dies, which I highlighted with silver gilding wax, in the same way I highlighted the main die.

Hope you like how this turned out and will have a go at something similar – these dies really are ideal for box making.

Anyway, hope you all have a great day & see you again soon.
