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.
