Just Because Gift Set





Hello everyone and Happy Thursday :) I have another quick post for you today (I've been doing a lot of "posting and running" this week, it's been busy around here :) Anyway, for my project today, I decided to make a mini pizza box and note card set for a friend of mine. I decided to ink up this beautiful Flowers in Chintz stamp from Karen Lockhart. I inked it with Memento Black, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I added Kaiser Soft Pink Rhinestones to the flower centers, then used my Creative Memories corner rounder on the corners. Next, I created my mini pizza box out of SU's Pretty in Pink cardstock. I made a little tutorial for Susana's Store Blog, Follow Your Heart on the steps I take to make this cute little box. I in no way created this idea, so I cannot take credit for it. I just thought I'd do a little tutorial on how I personally make the box. :)

Next, I decorated the box. I used my Fiskar's Threading Water Punch and made a border along the bottom of the box. I then layered Barely Banana cardstock on top of the box followed by Certainly Celery, followed by my design paper from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack (baby girl). I added a pink ribbon adn bow, and then adhered my image to my SU cardstock and then to the box with dimensionals. The sentiment is from a set called Tiny Words from Hot Off The Press. I used my SU Word Window Punch to cut it out. For a finishing touch, I added Primas.

Next, I made my notecards (I did two of each style). I used Flowers in Chintz and also Sweet Peas from Karen Lockhart. I used Flower Soft on both images. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the Sweet Peas image and then added Pearls.

Well, that's it for me today. I'd love to see what you think of my project. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Big Hugs, Christine
