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!
