Beautiful Rose Gift Box

I am so fortunate to know my stamping friends!  They are all such a blessing in my life in one way or another.

Last Monday my friend Debra and I planned a day to get together and stamp.  I think it took us about two hours to get through showing things to each other and getting lunch out of the way before we actually got down to stamping.  I'll be sharing the projects we made with you later on, but today I wanted to show you this GORGEOUS box that Debra brought to me.  Lookie:

Isn't it pretty?  It's made with one of the Kraft Gift Boxes from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  What?  You missed seeing those when you looked through the catalog?  Well, check it out again and look at page 15 at the bottom.  And see the DSP on the side of the box?  Would you believe that it's from one of our Christmas Designer Series Papers?  It's from the Letters to Santa DSP, but the colors are so soft and sweet that you could use it for all kinds of things.
The rose is breathtaking, isn't it?  It is hard to believe that it's made from cardstock.  The flowers are cut from Blushing Bride cardstock using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.
Deb even stamped a pattern all over the box.  Every little detail just adds something special.  As a final touch, she tied some Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon and Chantilly 1/2" Crochet Trim around the box.  I felt so special!  Thanks so much, Deb!!

If you'd like the instructions to make one of these roses for yourself, Deb has a wonderful step-by-step tutorial on her blog HERE.  Hope you enjoy - and if you make one yourself, be sure to send me a picture!

Until next time...
