Linda creates a Gift Box

Hello Bloggers

'Hello Meg's Garden Fans, Linda back with you again today to
share a cute little gift box.

I'm enjoying created with the wonderful Megs Garden products, they truly are beautiful.

I started with the Dreaming in Lavenders paper from the Dreaming in Meadows collection and covered the bottom half of the box in the solid section of the paper, then cutting out a border piece from the flowers and leaves.

I glued the paper to the bottom of the box then added foam dots to the border piece to give it more dimension. I also added a few random leaves cut from the paper into the border.

Then I covered just the top of the box lid in paper, and added some lace and trim to hide any edge bits that may be showing.

I added a Drawer pull handle to the top of the box & a Lion head knocker to the side.

Topping the top with flowers and a butterfly then applied a small amount of purple ink to the lace & Gesso here and there all over.

Products used

Green Tara flowers & lace

Calling this a 'cute' box is a total understatement - it is simply gorgeous & what a fabulous way to give a gift.
Well done Linda - it is beautiful & the photos are really great & show us all the elements of the project.  The top of the box is a wonderful collection of flowers & leaves topped with a beautiful butterfly.  Love the fussy cutting around the bottom. Wow!

Bye for now
