I'm calling these the new 'thank you' card because I really wanted to make them for my friends who spoiled me on my birthday. A little extra love for their sweetness! And I LOVE this box pattern! If you have a Silhouette machine, you can find it in the online store in Lori Whitlock's designs (LOVE all her stuff). It's this box: adorable_box_4_C00383_20509 2/02/2010. I printed some of the paper using digital paper from Cosmo Cricket and Creativity by Crystal, two of my favorite designers. Crystal's having a sale through the end of March on her darling papers--check out her blog for the info!
Silhouette tip: I resized the the pattern until the bottom part of the box almost completely filled the cutting area. Next I released the compound path. Then I selected the box top and grouped those pieces back together and moved it off the cutting area. This is an important step in resizing. If you resize the top and bottom of the box separately, the top will not fit the bottom when it's done!
Look how pretty this flower looks on top! The recipient of this box gave me a gorgeous bouquet of these flowers to use as embellishments. Isn't that a fabulous idea? And so appreciated! So she got one back. :)
Here is her other gift to me, wrapped up with one of the flowers on top.
Back to the boxes. I added a tag and some ribbon,
and filled the boxes with cookies. Yum!
Thank you, you darling girls, for the best birthday ever!
