Gift Wrapping + A Couple of Cards

Today Rebecca had a birthday party of one of her classmates. She'd bought some bangles and earrings for her. Since they are quite small presents in size, it's not that easy to wrap them. Instead of just wrapping them, I thought it would be nice to make a box for them. Her friend's favourite colour is purple, so I made a purple box for her and added a few details to make it a bit more special. Here's a picture from the top.

And one from the side:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: Making Memories, Jillibean Soup | Ribbon | Flower Die: Papertrey Ink | Sentiment stamp: Papertrey Ink (Mega Mixed Messages) | Border Punch: Martha Stewart (Double Dots) | Tag: newsagent | Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown) | Pearls: KaiserCraft

Last week I created a couple of other cards using some more Papertrey Ink stamps that I hadn't broken into yet and one of which the paper was still untouched.

Firstly a baby card for which I used the Baby Button Bits stamp set. I haven't been needing to make any baby cards, but I thought it was about time to play with the stamps. The patterned paper was also fresh off the shelf.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (kraft) | Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lush) | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Baby Button Bits, Background Basics: Diamonds | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Antique Cream), Staz'On (Timber Brown) | Button | Ribbon: MarieMare, Making Memories | Ric-Rac Die: Papertrey Ink | Label Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 1 | Corner Rounder: Woodware Designs

Finally, I picked up some more My Mind's Paper as I simply loved the colours and the patterns. I'd totally intended to make a minimalist card, but it took a whole different direction.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Bazzill White) | Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye: Quite Contrary | Ribbon: B*Inspired | Clear Stamp: Papertrey Ink (Mega Giga Guide Lines, Fancy Flourishes) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Bashful Blue), Papertrey Ink ( Pure Poppy) | Buttons | Machine Sewing | Scallop Circle Punch: Marvy Uchida | Border Punch: Fiskars (Apron Lace) | Floss: DMC

That's all from me for now. I wish everyone a great weekend.
