My first project of 2010!

Hello again!
Well, I did get a bit of crafting time in and I've made my first project of the year - this sweet little gift box. I used the largest scalloped square nestie and cut two out from brown cardstock. I then made a 3x3" box and attached the bottom and the top to the respective nesties. I haven't coloured up this cute Tilda in a while and thought she would be perfect atop this box lid. I coloured with my copics and cut her out. The MS frond punch and small roses and hydranges finish off the little flower ensemble. I added some ivory tulle under the nestie and tied at each end. Cream and pink pearls give the finishing touch.
Here's showing the open box (I filled it with flowers to show how you can gift it to someone or just keep your own stash in). Chocolates in this would be perfect for a little Valentine gift! Maybe even a special diamond .....ok, ok, I'm dreaming now, I know!! I gave a final finishing spray of Tattered Angels pearl mist (the camera has really picked it up!!).
Thanks so much for stopping by again! I'm so pleased I just got to craft on the first day of the new year - definitely makes me optimistic for making this a crafty year!!
Enjoy the rest of your day ..... it's still snowing here so not going anywhere!!
Hugs,
Danielle x

This is beautiful Danielle. I love the sparkle and the stitching is a perfect touch. Wishing you a very Happy New Year and enjoy the snow. We had a bit more last night but only a sprinkling thankfully.

Oh I love this! I was planning to make a few card sets this weekend for some birthday girls and this would make a great way to present them! I think I will be lifting this idea!

As always, your projects are inspirational!
