Out Of The Box (Order By A Client)

Hello everyone..

I know I have been very irregular in posting on the blog these days. But as you know, holiday season is on. And so, have been completing some orders lately. Pictured below is one of my orders where my client wanted to gift something different to her bestie for her birthday. So, I made a tag-fold card (you will see it in my next post) and a matching box. The box as you can see in the pictures below is a combination of shades of blue, pink and white and so is the card.. 

The box has been decorated with three layers of card stock excluding the box cover and then I have embellished it with blue and pink flowers. I have used different kind of flowers and pulled them up together to form a bunch with dull green leaves and some twigs popping out from in between. The pink glitter fabric flower in the middle has been embossed by placing it a little higher. Also, the lamp post has been decorated with matching flowers and butterflies. The The pearls, laces and the silver rhinestones only add to the regal-royal look of the box. By the way pearls have been one of my all-time-favorite embellishments. 

And now, hold your breath to know whats inside the box. Taaa daaaa.. open the box, and you'll find a personalized message..with some personalized tags for the birthday girl!! The tags are attached to things which signify the birthday girl or their friendship. of the tags is a miniature bottle of thumsup which says 'Thumbsup to our friendship.. and so on..I distressed the tags in pink and green color and hand wrote the messages on the tags.

The best part of making it was that the birthday girl loved the gift and when she got to know that I made it, she sent me a message too. 

Hope you all like it too.
