Matchbox Giftbox



Hi and Good Morning, Alison here today :)  I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

This week I wanted to show you how quick and easy it is to make a gorgeous wee gift box out of the Cheery Lynn Designs matchbox dies.

I used the largest Matchbox Die set for this gift box, and cut out 2 pieces in matching double sided 12 x 12 patterned paper.  I assembled the box quick and easily, as all the folds are embossed and it just all falls into place so well! :) 

I then decorated the sides of the box with  Sophias Heart border, and the Forever sentiment.

 
The top of the box is decorated with the matching Sophias Heart Mini Doily, and I made the flower from one of the new release floral strips Gardenia.  I held this together with a pearl brad and added some olive green leaves cut from the Rose Leaf Strip.
 
 
This was such a lovely gift box to make, and so easy too, I can see lots of uses for this die and all the other sizes to make a set!
 
All dies used are:
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting our blog today, and I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week where our theme is Silver and/or Gold.
 
Have a smashing week,
