Today I share something a little different to the usual cards and Project Life creations. I received this little decorative window gift box from another demonstrator to come up with something special. So I got to work and thought about turning it into a different type of card, a card in a box!
Seeing as I had some leftover butterflies from a previous project, I thought I would use them on the top of this cute little box and add some ribbon around the base.
As you know, I love butterflies, and so does my dear friend who turned 50 last week and had her big party on Saturday night, hence why I couldn’t post this sooner!!!! Happy Birthday Lisa, this is for you!
You may have noticed I called this box a decorative window box? Well it did have a clear window sheet opening at the top but that was going to defeat the purpose of my little creation. Why, you say? well keep reading and you will see why.
Now are you ready to see inside? This is my favourite part!!!!
I used the Big Day stamp set with Strawberry Slush ink on Crisp Canteloupe card stock and added a small Itty Bitty Flower punch from the Accents Punch Pack with a rhinestone in the centre.
In the box is a cake made from a battery operated tea light candle. The idea is to turn the light on before you hand it over to the recipient, hence why I wanted to cover up the acetate window on the top!
The inspiration to make this special card in a box was from Terri Suzuki and you can find her tutorial on this by clicking here.
What do you think? Isn’t it stunning?
Here’s a close up with the candle turned on!
I also added some rhinestones around the top of the cake and the base.
I would love for you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.
