Gift Box

Decided I should pull my finger out and start checking presents and organising them for wrapping etc. I am giving a necklace set so decided to make a box for it. Image: Anya
coloured with promarkers
sentiment: SU
paper: papermania I think
ribbons: crafty ribbon
flower: from stash
I even tried a wee touch of distressing......I love the look when others do it but it doesn't come naturally to me, so am determined to try it out now and then, it shows better on the tag in the pic below

My box fits a few challenges:

A crafty little place ~ Tag it
Polka Doodles ~ to hold a present
Cute Card Thursday ~ Floral frenzy
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge ~ Arctic Blue/carnation pink/lime zest
Carols Sketch Fun ~ sketch
Anyone for Anya? ~ Shabby chic Xmas (I am also using this to enter the DT call)

Few more presents to be made so will be back soon :o)
