A thank you gift

On Friday Zac was invited to a birthday party, yesterday I showed you the card I made for the little boy. Today I'm sharing the thank you gift I made for his Mum. My lovely downline Tracy showed me one of these boxes she'd made so I had to have a go too!

I went all bright and cheerful and used Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie. The patterned papers are Sweet and Sour Speciality - some of the papers are embossed and glossy, very yummy. I've used the Top Note die to make the box and the Fun Flowers big Shot die for the decoration. The box itself is / was filled with yumy Thorntons chocolates. Here's a close up of the flower:

You can see I've used both the Perfect Polka Dots and the Square Lattice Embossing Folders. I'm loving being able to add texture to my projects now. The Pumpkin Pie button is from the Brights selection.

Don't forget I have my Big Shot bundle offer on until the end of this month, so if you've been toying with the idea of the Big Shot - it makes it very much worth your while. See the post at the top of my blog for more details.
