A fairy on top!!

Eugh!! It's raining and blowing a gale here so no riding for me today (much to Surprise's delight I shouldn't wonder!!).  Instead I will share a gift box that I made using one of my newest LOTV family members!!




What I have actually made is a slip cover box using a template. It was so easy to do and makes such a nice change from a gift bag. The adorable stamp was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and the paper is a Nitwits scrap leftover from another project.


This picture shows the two pieces before they slide together and it's big enough to fit mini bath treats or chocolate!!

I stickled the edges for a bit of twinkle, although the photography leaves a lot to be desired today...bring back the sunshine!!





This was made with a few challenges in mind so I'm off to play.

Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes
LOTV August Challenge - Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra
All Crafts August/September - No cards
Holly Jolly Challenge - Anything Goes, Non-traditional colours

Have a good day everyone xx

What a delightful box! Love that shaping on the top piece. Of course I'm loving this wonderful LOTV image. As always you've colored it beautifully, and chosen perfectly sweet papers to set off the image. Liked the color palette too. Hope your area doesn't get any of that terrible wind I was reading about. Be safe and enjoy your day. Give Surprise a nice treat...and enjoy that fair next weekend. Oh how I wish I could visit there. TFS & Hugs.
