A Special Birthday Gift Box

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to show you a special birthday gift box I made for a very dear friend of mine!

I found this gift box tutorial on her blog, Heidi’s Crafts. I am very happy with how it turned out and I just love the colours.

I love this vintage pink paper! A few of Heidi’s favourite things are: Ribbon, lace, pearls, pins, flowers, glitter and light pink with maroon...she also likes bows! I tried to include everything on her present! We have very similar tastes when it comes to our favourite paper craft things!

Here are a few pictures of the other sides of my box without the packages inside:

I used a Whiff of Joy stamp on one side of the box.  I also decorated the remaining space with some small and medium flowers and pearls.

I used dotty pink ribbon and a few more flowers for the second side.  I also stuck two heart pins into the flowers, which I think looks so pretty!

The third side has the sentiment which says ‘You are so special’.  The tiny pearls are an added extra to the sentiment.

The last side is decorated with pink pearls which I laid out to create a swirl.  I also used a piece of big, white lace and pink ribbon on top.  To finish is off, I stuck two small pink flowers on the right-hand corner.

For the present, I made four packages up of some delicious goodies! The first one contains three Lindt chocolate balls; the second assorted pink buttons; the third contains half a metre of different ribbons and the fourth six different coloured butterflies.

I also made a little card to put with the box.  Since I couldn’t be with Heidi on her birthday, because we live so far away from each other, I wrote a little prayer inside especially for her!

I would also like to take part in the following challenges with my gift box:

Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum - Elegant and Lace
Bling it on - Anything Goes
Emerald Faerie Challenge - All Things Girly
I hope you like my gift box!
