A Gift For My Mom!!

I have an interesting project to share with you all today. It's not a card, but a little gift box I made to match the card I made for Mother's Day for my mom. I made it to hold the keychain I made her.

But before I get to that I want to let everyone know that I will be choosing a winner of my blog candy and announce it on my blog later tonight. And I'm sorry I didn't do it yesterday as promised but we had a water pipe burst on the side of our house yesterday and it was a really long day to say the least...lol.

Now to the little gift box...

 If you visited my blog on Sunday...you will see that I made the box to match my mom's Mother's Day card. You can see the card HERE.

I layered it with paper and followed the theme throughout the entire box...

The sentiment is one of my own, which I will soon be adding to my new shop later this summer!

Here are a couple close ups of the front...

I used more of the sparkly paper that I embossed with my Cuttle bug folder on the inside...

And the key charm I made her...


SIZE: 3 1/4 x 31/4
STAMPS: My own digital stamp creation
INK: Tim Holtz distress inks
PAPERS: K&Company, DCWV and Recollections
EMBELLISHMENTS: Flowers from "WOC", vintage lace, acrylic dew drops and Pearl stick pins
TOOLS: Cuttlebug machine, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Spellbinders dies, sewing machine, distressing blade, Fiskars border punch and Martha Stewart Score Board
OTHER: Tattered Angels glimmer and Stickles

And a closeup of the charm...

For the charm I used a beautiful goddess pewter charm with Swarovski crystals, Czech glass faceted crystal beads and Tibet bead caps hand wire wrapped.

Hope you have enjoyed this new and interesting project I shared with you today! I love how this one turned out so I also made one for my Grandma which I will also share with you today in a different post!
