Gift in A Box

I am seeing all these gorgeous boxes every where, on blogs,  Pinterest and I just had to give it a try.  Not bad for y first..........
I started with a piece of card stock 11 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Scored at 2 3/4 - 5 1/2 - 8 1/4 and 11.  turn and score at 4.  Cut at the smaller size and rounded all the corners, make your tab so you can glue it together by trimming the 1/2 end at the smaller end down to the larger end, hope that makes sense.
then just decorate to your liking........
I used all Heartfelt Creations products except for the solid card stock which is from Gina K.
I used:
HCDPI240 Raindrops on Roses Paper
HCDPI238 Floral Keys Paper
HCPC3545 Open Leaf Pre Cut Set
HCPC3494  Delicate Asters Pre Cut Set
HCD736 Classic Leaf Die
HCD712 Bella Rose Die
HCD726  Delicate Asters Die.
That's it for now, hope you give this a try, I will be making another one, I also made an envelope to match and will be mailing this out this morning to Bill's sister.  She's been in the hospital and Wed. is her birthday so hopefully this will help cheer her up!
Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful blessed day!!!!

Good Monday morning Olga,
I love, love, love, this wonderful creation.
I have seen a lot of these on Blogs, found a recipe but never got round to using it yet. Bit like all the "food" recipes I collect and never use.
Will have a read through yours later and I will have a go when I get time to play!!
Have a fantastic day
Hugs
