June Key Ingredients - Day 5

Hi Everyone,

This week on Taylor's blog, there has been a delightful set of sneak peeks and projects using the newest Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions. The Key Ingredients Kit is simply the perfect way to make cards because all of the guesswork is taken out and each of the ingredients is handpicked to coordinate with each other - from the ribbons, to the cardstocks, to the embellishments and design paper - and every month it arrives at your doorstep ready for your crafting addiction pleasure ;) !! You can check out the Key Ingredients Blog that has projects every month with each of the kits and is filled with awesome creations and projects!!

I love this month's Key Ingredients - and haven't been able to put it down all week - and for today's project, I created a little gift box for my MIL using the Perfect Package Cardbox. I used the Petal Pop Ups 2 dies from Taylored Expressions to layer some flowers on the box and used the sentiment: Live Laugh Love from the limited edition Delightful Day stamp set (you can click here for more info on how to get your hands on this awesome stamp set!!).

Here is another angle of the front of the box and the sides of the box - I added a line of liquid pearls around the top of the box and some baker's twine around the front side and tied a little bow out of the twine:

I decorated the inside top of the box and created 4 thank you cards to put in the box. My MIL has always said that one of her favorite presents are getting cards that she can mail out for occasions. So I thought I would make her a set of thank you cards:

Here is a closer picture of each of the cards - I used the medium flower in the Petal Pop-Up dies 2 to put on each card and used the Mini Tags dies (set of 9) for the thank you sentiment which is from the Beary Special Accessories stamp set.

 Here is a close up of one of the cards  - I decided to keep it kinda simple because I was going to be making 4 of them -  added the flower at the top and a line of liquid pearls across the scallop border.

I love how this project turned out - and can't wait to give it to my MIL - I love that she requests papercrafted projects as gifts - because I love to make them for her!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Please check out Taylor's blog for more samples and fun!

Big hugs,
Sankari :)
