Look what I made.

Today I went to a class at Leanne's home and we made this wonderful box -- we also made cards and tags to go inside.
First we made the box--which has an acetate window in the top and then we added the felted sticky back flowers across the corner.
Next we added the flowers and the tag which we also made.



When we had finished the box we made the eight cards that went inside .
Some that I made had the ribbon horizontally and on the others it was vertical.



This is a better photo to see the ribbon positions---we also made some tags to put on the back of the envelope----------


Next we embellished the backs of the envelopes.





What a great class ---and I can see some friends getting one of these packs for Christmas.

Wow...very swank! You're so right - these would make lovely gifts and not too expensive to make either.

Beautiful! I like the pink and black color combination. I sure wish there were some classes close to me but about all I find are scrapbooking things.

Well, that's birthdays and Christmases taken care of. Far more personal than bought ones. you can personalise them to the person they are meant for. They'll love them.
Cheers
