First I'd like to wish you all a belated Happy New Year!
It won't be long now till Sale-a-bration starts and the newSpring/Summer catalogue goes live (Jan 28th!) There's lots of lovely new product to look forward to and with Sale-a- bration a free product for every £45 you spend. Yestreday I had a boxful of new goodies arrivw so that I could show some sneak peaks to tempt you!
What I am going to show you today was not what I had planned it just sort of happened! Next month is a friend's birthday - on Valentine's Day would you believe - we always exchange a token present - nothing very expensive but I always struggle with what to give her. It's too late for diaries and calendars, her house is always like a florists shop on her birthday and if she has given me smellies I don't feel that I can then give her some! So at Christmas we were given 6 boxes of champagne truffles from various friends and I decided to rehome one of the boxes but pretty it up first!
I set to to make a prototype but liked it so decided to just go with it. The base is cardstock and the lid is made from DSP- both took a 12 x 12 sheet. As it was a trial one I used retired paper. The flower is the sneak peak from the new catalogue and the label a Sale-a-bration sneak peak. The leaves were cut with the Secret Garden framelits. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and the ribbon is non SU
from my stash.
If I make another I think I would make the lid less deep.
You can order from my online shop at anytime or email if you prefer the personal touch .
