Welcome to another CardMaker Magazine blog team hop! Today we are sharing cards (or in my case, projects( thanking people for the difference they have made in our lives. This time of year, and this week especially, is about thanking teachers, nurses, and of course, our moms!
In the craziness of getting all these thank you gifts together, I found myself trying to figure out ways to wrap these small tokens up in ways that would make an impact as well. And using some scraps and die cut pieces already in my stash, I was able to make this beautiful gift box in about 5 minutes!
This is a small jewelry box from a local department store. I hoard these like crazy because they hold gift cards beautifully and aside from the name on the box, they are totally white.
- Adhere a piece of patterned paper to the lid of the box only. Use a Scor Pal to get a crisp fold where needed.
- Repeat with a coordinating strip of patterned paper, placing it on top of the first.
- Adhere a die cut oval.
- Adhere die cut leaves to the right side of the oval. Bend the leaves to add a bit of dimension.
- Die cut and create a rolled flower. Adhere to the oval, over the leaves.
- Add a decorative brad to the center of the flower. In this case, I had made this custom brad with an I top tool.
- I did not add a tag to this, but I would add a stamped tag with a to/from and attach it.

P.S. Sorry its been a long time since I have posted. I have been struggling with some serious health issues. Soon I will explain what is going on with me. I am awaiting an appointment with a specialist at the end of the month. I am hoping to have answers and a plan then. A few prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
