50th Reverse Canvas Book Box!

Thought I would pop in today
 to show the card and gift I made
 for my cousin's
50th Birthday
The card and its box...

Made with
 "Grand Labels Four"

"Floral Ovals"

Webster's Trim

Skeleton Leaves
 flowers from my stash.

The beautiful bow - a triple loop, double bow.
Made with the Zutter "Bow-It-All"
I have had a few bow making tools
 over the years, but let me
 tell you girls - this is
I have always admired the stunning bows
that our card making sisters are
 producing and never thought I
 would be able to
 reproduce them!
Now I can, in just a few minutes!
This was only my second attempt
 (didn't pull centre tight enough at first go!).
I am sooooo delighted with
 this tool.
I'll showcase some other bows
I have made on
another post
 - so easy!

For the gift I made a
 Reverse Canvas Book Box
of Envelopes!
The canvas is 10 x 10 inches.

Pion Designs Paper
 "Studio of Memories"

Marianne Creatables
 "Anja's Vintage Frames"


The envelopes were all made
 using the
We R Memory Keepers
"Envelope Punch Board".
8 envelopes in total,
 in the recess of the canvas,
 tied with an organza ribbon.

Lace trims from stash.

The bow on the front of the box
 was again made using the

I hope you enjoyed seeing
my projects.
I loved making them,
 and my cousin was thrilled.
Happy Days.
See you again soon.
