Please feel free to check out my "The Best Things Are Sweet Gift Box" while you are here!!!

Hi everyone!!!
I am so glad you stopped by today....
I hope you checked out the Graphic 45 Blog yesterday to see Kathy Clement and my projects.
(I had to post it today since I had a prescheduled post already for yesterday but I hope you think it is well worth the wait.)

I created a fun card using Graphic4 45 Altered Art Matchbox to give as a gift recently for a friend. 
I  made an easel card for  the top and a tag with her gift card inside.
She loved how interactive the gift box was and it also gave her a sweet trinket box for her to use.

The Graphic 45 Café Parisian Pockets are the perfect size to add a gift card in and it is always fun to find a hidden gift using the tags and pockets from the collection.  

The box is the perfect keepsake box.

The smaller chipboard piece make the perfect piece to add to the top of the box to create the easel.

Adding beads from the jewelry department will give boxes some great dimension to the gift box.

I hope you have been inspired to make a few easel cards and add them to gift boxes.
Hugs Pam

  1. My goodness, Pam, this is just an incredible project! You've used those papers and chippies beautifully, and who wouldn't just love to get a gift like this! Love that little easel on the top! You are brilliant! Hugs!

  2. I sure do love what you did with these papers and the box. How very clever to add both together like that. I can just imagine how much your friend liked her gift.
