Merriest Wishes

Hi everyone Happy Thursday evening or Friday! I created this I Am Roses holiday gift box to share with you guys. It was really simple to make using designer paper. You can watch the tutorial here. All the edges were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The sentiment "Merriest Wishes" is from a Hero Arts stamp set. I framed it with the Classic Ovals Small and Labels Four dies from Spellbinders. I then used dimensional pop dots to raise it up and it allows the seam binding to run through the back. Some 1/4" Red & Brown Mini Paper Roses and 1/2" White Paper Roses accent the corners.

I am in love with this new flower to the I Am Roses Site, Big Red Gardenia. I used it as the centerpiece in the floral arrangement on the lid. One word, gorgeous! I first placed some brown seam binding and then laid some Skeleton Leaves as the base. I randomly placed White Cherry Blossoms, 1" White Paper Roses, Brown Paper Roses and some Mini Red Paper Roses all around the base of the red gardenia.

The box is filled with yummy goodies for my friend for a holiday crop party. I can't wait for her to see it =).

I hope you've enjoyed my gift box and tutorial video. Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!
