|Here's the aerial view. For the base of the lid I cut a piece of dark green CS with the largest die in Spellbinders Labels 23 set. My inspiration for this box came from the numerous tutorials posted by Beate Johns on Splitcoaststampers. She's a genius, I tell ya! You must check her out...err, I mean her blog.|
|My box measures 2" x 3" and has my MIL's fave elements: roses, pearls and the colour green.|
|I wrapped a little strip of patterned paper by Stampin' Up! around the side of the lid, added some cream satin ribbon and bow. (Now do you feel the crick in your neck?!)|
|The sentiment is from WMS "Compact Sentiments", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on white CS and cut out with Spellbinders Beaded Oval die. Then I sponged with TH's Peeled Paint.|
|And finally I threw in some pearls because my MIL loves her pearls. ... she sure does!|
And now, I'll quietly go back indoors and quietly send telepathic messages to Conan to take me out for dinner. Have a fab Friday and a wicked weekend, dear CCs. Thanks for swinging by and I'll see ya soon.
p.s. And don't forget to stop by Make It Monday #97. It's chock full of crafty creations!
