August GSS

Here are my entries in the August GSS. I made these for my sister as part of her birthday present. I'm making the same thing for my other sister for her birthday as well.

I had so much fun making these boxes.

I filled the Pack a Picnic box with all kinds of little things including a gift card holder that I forgot to photograph. I didn't fold down the top like it shows in the directions because I needed the extra height to the box.

My sister loves these colors and has it all through her home so I thought it was only appropriate to use them in these projects.

For the Card Couture I was originally going to use it as a recipe box but the recipe cards I got didn't fit. Even when I tries to cut them down. See my sister collects Roosters (not the real ones) and I found recipe cards at Michael's that had a rooster theme on them but I could only cut them down so far without cutting into the theme. So I decided to make it a tea box similar to the one Lauren Meador made. It's a good thing my sister likes tea!

And of course I had to make a card to complete the theme. I just love making these accordian flowers. I hope my sister enjoys them as much as I did making them. Tomorrow I'll share another project I made for the GSS.

Thanks for popping in!


  1. Very pretty. I love those colors together, so earthy and pretty.

  2. You did a great job on all the pieces I especially like what you did with the picknic template. what stamp did you use for the red berries though?

  3. Hi...
    Those are really nice greetings. They would make the day for whomsoever you present them. That concept of clock pattern is quite innovative.
