6 Cards and a Gift Box

As part of my sister's birthday present I thought I would make her some cards and put them in a box so I did, here's some photos:

These photos were taken quickly but I'm sure you will get the idea. This box was made using a single A4 sheet of real red cardstock. I kept the same colours as the birthday card just because I was enjoying using them. These are not my usual colours but it's fun trying something different. Here is a photo of the cards I made to go inside:

Originally I was going to make girlie cards that my sister (Kate) could give for parties that her daughter Chloe might go to but as soon as I gave myself a theme it wouldn't come to me so I just made whatever I wanted. I had just received my spring mini catalogue goodies so for some of the cards I used the die cut blooms from that which make great easy cards. I also used the level 2 hostess set which I am also loving at the moment. Below is a photo of he box and the belly band that I made to go around it:
The belly band is made using So Saffron cardstock with the wide grosgrain ribbon in real red. I used the 5 petal flower punch and red eyelets for the flowers.
I really enjoyed making this box and it was very quick and easy. If you want any more details just email me here
