Crafting with Dragonflies and Gift cards.

Challenge # 12 : Make a gift box/folder with at least 3 cards

This fortnight CWD is challenging you to make at least three (3) small cards and a box/bag/purse/container to hold them.  We have two sponsors again this time:

A Day For Daisies -  with a $12 Gift Certificate to the shop


Di's Digi Designs

My cards and the image on the box came from ADFD, who very kindly allowed the DT to choose an image to use. I used the image called Flowers in a Bottle. I printed them out onto XPress Blending card, after I had resized them to fit three across the page (Portrait).

I coloured them with Copics and cut them out to mount onto some folded card stock, to create five gift cards. I then created a small open-ended box using SU Poppy Parade card.  I just worked on the size of the cards, and then used a 2 cm base, and folded the two sides up, allowing a side seam of 2 cm each side.  I glued it together with red tape.

 I used a piece of ribbon threaded through and knotted inside the box each side.  I used a piece of scrap DP behind the image when I attached it to the carry box.

The five cards are folded from the top, and are designed to be part of a set to give as a gift.  If I was clever I woud have printed these off  directly onto the card, but I wasn't and I wanted to make sure each card is roughly the same as the other so I coloured them all up together. 

If I wanted to, I could have made five envelopes too - there is room in the box for them. 

I will enter these in the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards: Flowers
My Craft Creations: Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes again!

Beautiful colors, I love the image you chose. And I like that you added each image to the front of the card, adds dimension. Great tip about adding the ribbon to the top of the box, just knotted inside, will put that in the memory bank!
