A Little Gift Box

I have not been at my craft table much the past few days as my mom has been in the hospital.  We (dad and me) took her in to E.R. last Friday morning and she was diagnosed with a small bowel obstruction.  Anyway, I've been at the hospital all day Friday and a few hours on both Saturday and Sunday.  Well, Sunday things started moving and she may be home today.  But today I needed to get caught up on laundry, prep for a class a week from tomorrow, and other house hold stuff.  I did get a little box made from a Sizzix die I just purchased called "Box w/ Scallop Flap & Flowers".  I purchased it at a huge stamp yard sale Saturday morning on my way to the hospital. I also got the 2 "slightly used" extended cutting pads from Sizzix and 3 stamps.

This is the flap side. (I haven't done anything with the other side yet).  I cut an extra flap from red card stock to cover the flap then added the white scallop edge.  Funny that I ended up covering all that with the flower cut from my Tattered Flowers die.

Here is the box open.  You can see the scallops better and also the velco half dots that I used to hold the flap closed.

As I was playing with the flower I got out my silver Wink of Stella brush to see how it would show up on the red flower petals.  Not bad!  And the large rhinestone was perfect to finish it off.  This little box would hold a couple Ghiradelli chocolates or gift cards easily. I'm debating making this little box a class later this year.  Would be great using Christmas papers.

This box could be used to share recipes. A few recipe cards could be put inside. Would be a nice hostess gift.
