Wrapping it up... 35

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 23, 2012 @ 2:00 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! I have a few photos to share from Jerry's graduation ceremony on Friday. I won't babble on but I must say, I'm so proud of him :) 

I spent some time today finishing up several gift card boxes that I have been working on. I pulled out my Cricut Expressions machine and made a few boxes using the Bags, Tags, Boxes and More cartridge along with patterned paper from the Pink Paislee City Sidewalks collection. The boxes measure 4 1/2" W x 4" H x 1/2" D, perfect size to house gift cards :)
This year, I didn't shop for my son's sweet GF April, we bought her gift cards to several of her favorite stores so she can shop for herself. I'm so proud of her because she wanted to lose weight, she put the effort into it and has successfully lost over 20 lbs. So we thought she would have more fun shopping for herself :) The tag on this gift box was made using Die-namics Tag You're It and Stamp Set. I stamped the tag image using MFT Wild Cherry ink, adhered an embellishment on that was made using a die from Die-namics Dizzy Doily DUO along with a fan fold decoration that was made using Die-namics 1/4" Rosette then finished it with a Wild Cherry button and a hemp bow.
The inside features a gift card pocket using the Die-namics Gift Card Pocket - Horizontal die then stamped a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments using Wild Cherry ink.
The next gift box features an embellishment made using the following combination of MFT products: Die-namics Snowflake Doily, Die-namics Decorative Doily DUODie-namics 1/4" Rosette, Sno Cone button and hemp.
This gift box also contains a pocket that was made using the Die-namics Gift Card Pocket - Horizontal die then stamped a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments using Wild Cherry ink.
The next gift box features an embellishment made using the following combination of MFT products: Die-namics Jumbo Snowflake, Die-namics Open Scallop Doily DUODie-namics 1/4" RosetteSno Cone button and hemp:
The inside contains a gift pocket made using Die-namics Gift Card Pocket - Vertical that was stamped with a sentiment from LJD Stitched Stockings
And last but not least is a gift box for Jerry featuring an embellishment made using the following combination of MFT products: Die-namics Decorative Circle STAX, Die-namics Dainty Doily DUODie-namics 1/4" Rosette, a Wild Cherry button and a hemp bow:
The inside contains a gift pocket made using Die-namics Gift Card Pocket - Vertical that was stamped with a stamped sentiment from  from Seasonal Sentiments:
Thanks so much for visiting! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
Be Sweet ;)
