Wooden Box and Notelets

Hi All

I just wanted to share this box and notelets that I made for my friend Gemma for Christmas! I was so pleased with how it turned out and luckily she loved it too!! 

 I have recently been trying my hand at Pyrography using the Purple Cows Sizzle Tool which I love and so decorated this box which was big enough to hold the A6 notecards I had made to go inside.
I embossed the base card using the Thank You folder from Cuttlebug All In One and inking the clear side with Antique Linen DI before running it through!
 I then punched a hole in the corner of the base, stamped the same colour card with a script stamp in Coffee Archival Ink which I matted behind the hole.  Went round the outside with a thin gold border peel off and then placed all different coloured Prima flowers in the middle with either pearls or crystals in the centre.

Then tied them all up in a bow and put them in the box!

This is my first Make It Monday entry of 2013!! Hooray!!

Speak Soon

  1. Hi Natalie, This is superb. Thankyou for your kind comments on my entry in MIM. Saw yours and came for a closer look. First I thought you had used one of thse etching tool machines (Dremel I believe they are called) but not so sure now? Thr effect is stunning anyway. Love the little notelets you have enclosed. Hugs Mrs A. p.s. Now following.
