Gift Box Purse in Purple

I loved this little box from the past so much I just had to bring it back and add a little twist to it. I have no idea where the Original idea of the folded box came from or just how long it’s been out there but here is just one of the ones I’ve done. This one was created and cut in Cricut Design Space. The link to the  file can be gotten in the Red version previously posted called Gift Box within a Purse. I used the paper collection Sonoma, Coco Ink, and some odds and ends for embellishing from Close To My Heart. The paper collection is retired. It was my favorite collection that year so I decided to use it for this project, I’m glad I did. I love how I was able to fussy cut some of the pieces to embellish it to give it even more interest and depth.

A Tiny 2″ Treat Bag

This is a tiny 2″ gift box done from the Ivy Lane Paper Collection. Very simple for it is so small and doesn’t need a lot of embellishing. It was quick and easy and only took about 35 minutes to make. I used the Cards and More Basket pattern to create the box and then embellished it. Remember to get the Cards and More Basket pattern from Inking From The Heart to make this. I just made it a lot smaller and left off the side panels that are in the full version of the basket. It is perfect for just a few pieces of candy or a little trinket of sorts as a thank you to someone.

Gift Bags

Basket 1 Skylark Paper photo_3(1) photo_3(3) photo_4 photo_5(1) photo_5

These are 3″ x 3″ Gift Bags I made using Skylark and Ivy Lane Paper Collections. They take one sheet of print paper and one sheet of card stock to complete each one. I added a little extra stamping to the Skylark version. On the Ivy Lane version I cut out one of the flowers from the pattern paper and using the Smokey Plum Ink I lightly colored it with a sponge dauber and then added another small flower to the center for an extra layer. I love my layers. The pattern I used is from Madeline Morcelo and is called Cards and More Basket. Pattern can be purchased through Madeline at Inking from the heart. A very fun project to use as a gift bag to say thanks. A 3″ stamp collection will fit inside as well as a few treats. What a nice gift this will make for a hostess for having a great gathering, or any other event you need a little something to say thanks and you appreciate them.
