Sunflower Box with Tracy

When you think of summer, what do you think of?

Do you think of warm days, the sun shinning and a garden full of beautiful, hardy flowers?
I do!

After all the rain and mud, I am ready for some beautiful sun!

SVG Attic has a new kit that is perfect for all of you sun loving people, waiting for summer.

JGW Sunflower Sunshine

JGW Sunflower Sunshine is the most recent set that was just added to the store.
This collection features beautiful sunflowers on cards, boxes and even a little stand.

For my project today, I choose to create the Hex Sunflower Box.

This is such a beautiful box with so many details, but it is easy to do as well.
The box measures almost 6" across and 2" tall, just the right size for gift giving; or use it to hold a special keepsake or two. The possibilities are endless, but you will never get tired of looking at it.

The flower looks complicated but if you follow Jody's instructions here, it actually goes together easily.

Grab some of your favorite paper (I used We R Memory Keepers) and create your own Sunflower Hex box, you will love yours as much as I love mine...Promise!

Easter Gift Box

Welcome to April
That means the Easter Bunny will soon be hopping by.

Today I am sharing another project for My Scrap Chick Design Team and its all about Easter

I Designed this box to hold a large Cadbury Chocolate Easter Egg.
When I went shopping I couldn't find just what I was looking for so I filled a couple of plastic eggs with the smaller ones.

To make the treat box I used two files from My Scrap Chick.

Gable Box: click to enlarge

The Gable Box has a little window in the front so your treat can peak out and it includes the cut  layered flower and leaves.

To make the box just a little big bigger, change the dimensions to a width of 11.75"
Use a stylus to round the leaves and bend the flower petals.

Fluffy Bear & Bunny
The bunny is made using the  Fluffy Bear and Bunny file.
He is made up of layers and a hand drawn face.
Ink the edges of the paper with either pink or grey and he is so cute and you could even use him for a baby gift.

Fill you box and share it with someone special.
