Treat Yo Self (gift box)

Things are so wild around here this week – more than usual. The upside is, I’m cleaning out my files and realized I never posted this project that I created and adore. How could I?! Well now I am here to share – hope you enjoy.

With a glittered die cut at the center, I added buttons, glitter, and random do-dads to create the ultimate gift box. My base is just one of those cheap little alterable paper boxes you can pick up at any craft store. You guys – these are so much fun to make.

This die from Ellen Hutson (affiliate link) is just the best, and since ‘treating myself’ to it last month I can’t stop using it!

I’ve got spooky box coming next week, and you can also find me creating some Christmas versions next month – including a very merry video. So stay tuned – oh, and treat yo self to this die. Seriously a fun one!

don’t know the reference “Treat Yo Self?” well then you’ve not watched Parks & Rec (How could you not?!! one of the best shows out there…) so here’s a link to a YT that has the good snippets that should explain…

Layered gift wrap for baby

Kraft wrapping paper + doily + trim + bits and pieces = quick, easy, and lovely wrap. Every time!
I used a bunch of random stuff including clear shapes (Heidi Swapp), paper bits, and a bag ‘o buttons (link to in pastel shades.
I love how this little gift looks and I am sure mama will enjoy not just the wrapping, but the gift inside as well.
