Happy Monday :) Today is my last day as Guest Designer for FireCracker Designs by Pamela and I created a little giftset with a vintage feel for my friend's birthday. She loves to create jewelry and I thought making her a little box to hold her jeweled creations would be a perfect bday present. I used the beautiful set: Parisian Romance:
I loved making this card - I love looking at vintage pieces - but cannot really make them but I found this beautiful and GORGEOUS paper from Graphic 45 and couln't wait to create this project with it :) Here is a picture of the card:
Here is a close up peek at the Eiffel Tower - I added a little vintage heart button to the top of the Bo Bunny flower (I have had this button for 3 years - and am so glad to finally use it!)
Here is a close up picture of the love sentiment with a little heart punched out with some bling and pearls (reminds me of the song "Diamonds and Pearls" by Prince :)
I decorated this box with the papers (a little bit of Zip Dry goes a long way) and then used the same Eiffel Tower Image but used the smaller size stamp for this box. I tied the ribbon across the box and then added a bow on the top with some glue dots :) Here is a picture of the box (both top and side):
And here is a picture of the front of the box :) I added the same bling as on the card and the whole box measures about 3x3 . I can't wait to give this present to her tonight!! I still have some time to go shopping and find some perfect jeweled piece to put inside the box before she opens it!
