My Creative Time 3~D Wednesday

Good morning and welcome to My Creative Time 3~D Wednesday! Today Emma and the design team will be featuring anything but a card or layout. So for my project I have decided to borrow an idea I saw off of my sweet friend Katie. Click here for the details ~ she gives AMAZING instructions. You are probably asking why I have decided to borrow this idea. Besides LOVING hers, I actually need to mail a small gift to a friend, for awhile now, and need it to be flat but presentable. So I thought why not give this a try!

I won't bore you with all the details but I will tell you about some ideas I used. When I saw the bottom of the box looking plain, I decided to stamp it using one of the flower images from "Bloom Where You Are Planted" stamp set. I also looked at the tissue paper as I was placing the gift inside the box and thought this looks rather plain too. So I got my Script Type Backgrounds stamp out and just inked up that tissue paper! I actually like how this looks. I also didn't want to send a card but just a small note to my friend. I knew that Emma's Tag Dies would be PERFECT for a little note! Just embellish the front and add a little note on the back! PERFECT! Oh I couldn't help myself to use my new found LOVE ~ burlap and hemp! Thanks to my fellow DT member Liz from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. I have fallen in LOVE with her boutique! I will list ALL the other materials and products used below.
