Shabby Chic Card and Gift Box
I created this shabby chic card and matching gift box for a birthday present for a dear sweet friend! I didn't have a lot of money to spend, so why not hand make something just as special! I used the Graphic 45 paper collection, Botanical Tea. One of my favs! The beauty of the shabby chic colors for this project were perfect! For the card I started with a blank corrugated card base from Micheals. For the outside of the gift box, I used some premade chipboard pieces from my supply and traced their shapes to give me the design for the box. For the inside of the box, I just made a basic pattern of my own and folded it into a rectangular box shape to hold the present. The earrings were made by my sister-in-law. I saw this cute picture from Pinterest for gift wrapping ideas and that's how I came up with the idea of putting earrings inside a cute corked jar....cuz somebody else thought of it first! LOL! ...but I did add a tiny flower and bow. Here's the pics:
