Mini gift box

Good evening and what a warm one it is. Whats everyone been doing ? Hope its been lots of good things.
So what have I been making ? Well I love my spellbinders square bracket edge box die, (which I purchased from hope chances creativity) so much I decided to use one of my other loves Graphic 45 and the lovely botanical tea !! 

I made it to put money in for a friends birthday. Im going to use this as my Boxing day lunch place settings, hopefully with the new g45 christmas papers !! Fingers crossed the birthday bear will bring them to me on December 9th lol. It only took around 20 minutes from start to finish. I really like the fact you can you it with any sort of papers. Let me know what you think of it. Have a great weekend everyone & have fun xxxx


  1. Love it Elaine, it's so pretty! Hugs, Lisa x

  2. Looks lovely Elaine. I dont have this die but borrowed John Next Doors before he moved back to UK to cut enough to make Hollies Advent Calender which i will post on my blog when completed, I really will have to buy my own 'cos I love it, xxxx

  3. I love what you have done with the box lid, I have to say i'd be lost without this die-it's so useful.
