A little box .....

Good morning everyone!

I hope you have all had lovely weekends. I had some crafty time making a little box for my niece's birthday. My brother and sister and I have a £5 gift rule for the children in our family as we are all a little short on pennies.

Harriet loves making cupcakes so I decided to make a little box we can pop £5 and some cake sprinkles in little plastic bags into.

The box itself is from the Silhouette store so if you have a silhouette machine, you can find it HERE

And one of my all time favourite Mo Manning by Stamping Bella stamps, Whats Cooking? was just absolutely posatootly perfect for this job!! I stamped her out 3 times, once on my colouring paper and then once on either side of the paper I had left over from making the box. I stamped her on each side so I could have a different colour dress and apron. These Daisy Bucket papers are just fantastic, they are so pretty and they cut perfectly on my cameo machine, its always sooo good to find a paper that will cut great on your machines!!! I gave the edges a gentle inking with my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink pad.

She really is just the cutest!! I didn't use her little sentiment as I had already worked on cutting Harriet's name to go along the curved line of the box in my Silhouette software.

Thank you for popping in!
Hugs Lou xxx

What a lovely little box and gift. I'm sure she was very pleased with this handmade pressie, such a great idea. Love Mo's image and she looks great with her paper pieced dress and apron.
