Beautiful boxes!

I was browsing the internet a little while ago, trying to find a way to make a presentation box for flowergirl headdresses that I have made - and came upon demonstrators for Stampin' Up - particularly Sam Hammond who has her own blog and posts absolutely excellent videos on YouTube for a wide variety of boxes, bags and cards.  The link to her blog is

She obviously promotes Stampin' Up  products which in some areas are a bit pricey - but that said I have bought crafting kit from them and have been very pleased with the quality.  Their papers and cardstock patterns and designs are stunning too.

Anyway - credit card at the ready - I invested in a scoring board (via Amazon, Martha Stewart bought from America), mouse adhesive strip (genius way of adding sticky to card rather than using liquid glue which is messy and takes time to dry!) and already had a Martha Stewart lacy edge punch ...

I experimented with a mini box tutorial and discovered potential wedding favours -

Actually, I used this particular little box to send a thank you gift to a lovely customer who placed two orders for her wedding - these little hearts and (following a cheeky suggestion from me) a throw bouquet....

So I decided to have a go at making other favours, linking in to the Pantone colour palette of rose quartz and serenity blue - 

How pretty are these?
