Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today. I have a fun project to share with you today that is a perfect way to give your dad a little trinket or gift certificate for Father's Day. I don't know about you, but it's hard to by for my husband and dad for Father's Day. I get oh I don't want or need anything....that being said I do know that my dad will never turn away a gift certificate to go golfing!! This box is the right size to place that in!!
love to alter boxes, it's one of my favorite things to do. They make
such a great, unique way to give a gift. Not to mention you can find a
paper mache box to alter almost anywhere! I grabbed the Quick Quotes
paper that Cheryl had sent us, it's called Calypso Collection. I love
the colors in this line and how well the line goes with the Petaloo
inked all of the pattern paper using Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink,
ran the papers through my Xyron 5" Creative Station and it was smooth
sailing from there! Here is a better view of the top of the box. Can I
just tell you how TOTALLY AMAZING the burlap blossoms are....i'm so in
love with these flowers and the butterflies....well these are a must
have!!!! I used the Burlap Blossoms (Teal & Ivory) on the lid and
you can see in the photo below I took apart a Spring Berry Cluster
(another must have in EVERY color) and placed them around the flowers.
This collection from Quick Quotes came with some really cool chipboard
stickers as well so I popped one of those up in the flowers.

inspiration on a crafty, unique way to start giving gifts to your loved
