WOYWW 445 and a Tree

Hump Day!!!  For me, a time to play catch up on stuff to do.  Yesterday I mailed out 4 packages and about 25 cards.  I may have to make more today.  But right now you have the opportunity to see my desk (which is totally boring right now) and a project. And in case you're wondering, the WOYWW in my post title stands for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, a fun weekly blog hop of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  And the 445 represents how many weeks this has been going on!

So this is my desk yesterday.  I just cleaned it off to regroup and be ready to start today.

Yep, empty, tidy, whatever. You can't see the pink painted box drying on my Amaze die cut machine far far right.  But you do see the gesso'ed box far left.  In between, a pile of new goodies just to the right of my red Cricut, and a little black twist gift box by my OTT light. Oh, a pair of pliers I needed to open a bottle.  So, boring. But I do have a view of a little box I recently made....

This little cutie stands about 5 1/2" high.  A fellow coach shared her directions and this box holds a gift certificate to my company and some M&Ms for a friend.  All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey.

The opening is at the top.  You just untie the ribbon (adhered on side and bottom) and carefully squeeze.

I didn't add a lot of embellishments but I like the more simplistic look. I used 2 leaves and a snowflake die along with the silver dot for the tree.  And my recipient just loved this!!

Ok, I'm done. I hope you enjoyed my project (hard to enjoy a tidy desk) and now please head over to the Stamping Ground for the links to other desks.

That box is gorgeous! I prefer the less-is-more approach too and I think you have it just right.

I like simplicity too; the box looks very sophisticated. Hope you don't have to make many more cards. Happy WOYWW Sarah #11

Beautiful box - youre so right about not over-embellishing.. it looks perfect!
Your desk is NOT boring lol. I always try to take a close-up peek of the photo ... is that a latte whisk peeking out from under the lamp? Beautiful little flowers... and LOVE the array of ink colours you have.
See... not boring at all lol
Have a wonderful week,
