Gift Box

Hi All. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts today. Always great to have people call in and especially lovely on a dull, dark and damp day like it is here today.

At Speed Craft Challenge it is Anything goes and the great news is that they have a sponsor so do pop and see what you could win if you join in.

I made this pillow gift box and it only took fifteen minutes from printing out the template to finishing the box with the ribbon tie. It did look a little bare so I had to find something to stick on the flap to add a bit of extra colour--that took extra time, mainly deciding what to use. I thought the ribbon flower went well with the green shiny ribbon.

The template is by Martha Stewart and you can find it here

Have a wonderful day

Love Chrissie x
