Gift Boxes

Gift Boxes

While I was round Nikki’s on Monday evening we had a creative evening.
We found a site called Project Tuesday full of ideas and projects done on a weekly basis.
These boxes were from an older post and a tutorial can be found here.

The stamp you can see is on a card in the box from a retired set. They were fun to do and hope to do some more for an Autumn Fayre..
