Timeless Templates

First, I'd like to apologize for being absent from here for so long. Sometimes life just gets in the way. So with that being said I'd like to share a project that I made for my sister for her birthday. I just love the Timeless Templates. There is so much you can do with them. I made my other sister a set like this except I used the pure poppy Green Tea Leaves patterned paper.

In the Pack a Picnic box I added some bath gels and lotions. I love the accordian flower I added to the top.

The Card Couture box is filled Celestial Seasonings tea bags which are a perfect fit. I used magnetic snaps by Basic Grey to help keep the flap closed.

This is the newest template which is called Cash and Carry. I like that you get three templates in this set. In my stash I had these Folio Closures by Colorbox that I used to help keep the box closed. This box is used to house a gift card.

My only concern with this box is that the bottom was open and I was afraid that the gift card would fall out. So I added the patterned paper that wraps all the way around the box. This will ensure that card stays in place. Lauren also had an idea to make a belly band that fits around the box. I'll have to try that for my next box.

Lastly, I had to make a card to coordinate with this set. I just love to make these accordian flowers. The embossed image on the spring moss cardstock is from Cuttlebug and I added a couple of score lines at the top and the bottom.

I hope you enjoy my projects today and thanks for stopping by.


  1. What an amazing gift set! I just made some of those accordian flowers for a banner I'm working on & had to stitch them down- none of my adhesive would keep it in place! Owell!
