Boxing Clever

Hello all, it's good to be back in action again, unfortunately my husband was rather ill before Christmas and then my laptop decided to die on me so I have not been posting for a while.  Hubby is now better and I have a new laptop so normal service will be resumed.

I was asked to create some small gift boxes using the fabulous Crafter's Companion Favour Box Dies for Die-cutting Essentials Magazine Issue 60 and this is one of my favourites.


I used the Trinket Box die along with some Royal Blue and Baby Blue Centura Pearl cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Honeycombe Favour Box die set.  These boxes are so easy to make up and they are a really useful size - you really should give them a go.


Thank you for visiting my blog today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave - they are all read and very much appreciated.

What a cute box this is and I love the hearts on it. It would be nice to have several of these on hand for a quick gift for someone. I'm glad to hear hubby is on the mend and the laptop that bit the dust has been replaced. Happy New Year to you.
