Before I start, I'd also like to say a big thank you. I've reached over 45,000 hits now and I just want to thank you for stopping by to see what I have to share with you. I hope you'll do me the honor of signing up to become a 'follower' as well. You can also sign up to receive my posts by email or through being 'networked'. It's quick and easy. Be sure to share a comment now and then, too. I love hearing from you. You may have a question, want to express what kind of posts you like to see, or share an idea with everyone. So, a big thank... and now... on to today's post.
The kit comes with everything you need to make 8 boxes. There's a belly band to wrap around your box, cute little embellishments --- including buttons --- and even a little card for the inside. The embellishments are not all the same, either, so you get a lot of variety. For example, you get 4 different designs of belly bands.
Of course, I didn't want to make all my boxes with just the kit, so I added some roses (from my dyeing project) to some and some bow ties to some. I did use the cute little feathers and make those boxes pretty much as intended. I did not, however, use the little circle pieces or baker's twine (intended for box closures) and I did not use the little tag pieces. I saved those to use on an additional project. All the doilies and belly bands from the boxes that I used with bow ties, I saved for my other projects.
I made this fun layout:
But wait! There's more!
I also made a bunch of cards:
I cut card bases and used more of the embellishment pieces, added a little this and that... and now I have a bunch of cards:
Altogether, I made:
1 complete 12 X 12" layout
Super great news:
A gift card fits perfectly into the cute little boxes. What a fun way to give a special gift!
