A Special Gift

Hello dear friends,

Not a card from me today but a gift box. It was great fun making something different for a change. My project was designed for the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge and the theme is to create something for a gift in the vintage, shabby or primitive style. With Christmas around the corner this is perfect timing to do the last-minute gift boxes, money enclosures, tags or gift bags.  Renee also prepared a tutorial for an adorable gift box to make. Hope you will join us this week with your creation as this will be our last challenge for 2012 and  will run for two weeks. We will be back with a new challenge on January 5th, 2013.

I also want to enter my project in the following challenges:


The sentiment tag, roses, fancy pins and ribbon on the lid
