All in the Presentation...

Hello friends!

I have a fun little creation to share today, that I made, using these awesome
Crafter's Companion products:

Signature Collection by Sara Davies 'Together Forever' A4 Luxury Foiled Card Pad
Ultimate Tool

I cannot get enough of this fabulous card stock. Oh my goodness! It is
just regal.  My photos do not do it justice. I just can't figure out how to photograph
such a beautiful, metallic product!  If you have any suggestions, I'd love
to hear them!

I needed a last minute gift for someone at church, so here's what I made:

I wanted to create a box just for these candies, so first, I measured to see what size box bottom would be needed.

The candies measured 5" x 5", so I added an inch to each side, and created the
box bottom.

See?  Perfect fit!

With the Ultimate Tool, there is a box, and a box lid template. Both pieces
of card stock are cut to the same size, and each are scored on the corresponding template,
resulting in a perfect fit every single time!

The Ultimate Tool also has some fun templates for scallops, waves, swirls, hearts, etc.
I used the scallops, and trimmed just under the scored lines, resulting in a very pretty edge on my
box lid.

Add some adhesive to your box 'flaps' or 'tabs', and voila!  The perfect box!

I had a slight mis-score (you can see in the above photo), so I cut a small strip of the stripes,
and glued it over my mis-score. Then, I fussy cut one of the silver roses, and popped it up
with some dimensional foam on top of the strip.  Looks SO pretty in real life!

Here is a photo of the box all closed up and ready for delivery to church today!


You should SO check it out!  Each day of the month features a 
special 'something'....maybe a sale item, a give-a-way contest to enter, or possibly a great 
tutorial - be sure to 'open the door' each day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care, and keep smiling!

Such a cute project. TFS. I take my photos on an angle and make sure the overhead light is off. The papers you used are gorgeous.
