My Favourite Things...

Baja breeze cardstock, ribbon and buttons, these are a few of my favourite things. This little gift box would have to be one of the quickest projects I've made in a while. In fact I think it probably took longer to watch the video tutorial by Angie Kennnedy Juda, than making the box itself. And the great thing about this style of box is it folds flat for storage.

By the way, do you recognise the sentiment stamp? I'll let you in on a little secret, it's actually from the jumbo roller wheel 'Friendly Words'. Teneale Williams posted a great tutorial a while back on how to take the rubber off your roller wheels and convert them into clear mount stamps. It is such a great idea and I would have to say that my wheel has had more use this way than it ever did as a roller wheel.

What a gorgeous little box! Thanks for posting the video link too. Will sit down and have a go myself. It is always fun learning new ways with boxes. Love the button detail too.

Great minds think alike Anna... I've been making these as my Convention swaps!

Darn it, now the secret's out. Oh well, hopefully others will still be inspired by the way I decorate them...

Beautiful, Anna. I, too, love Baja Breeze, ribbon and buttons - all together, they help to make this a fabulous project!

I agree with everyone else - it is absolutely beautiful. Must have a look at the video and have a go too. Of course it is done in my favourite colours which makes it even nicer.
