Mothers Day Blog Hop #DT07

Hi stampers, it’s time for another Dream Theme Blog Hop and this month it is all about Mothers Day.  I think mothers should be spoilt all year round lol but hey, I look at it as a great excuse to be able to get into my craft room and make something extra special for her.
DT-DreamTheme-DT2The project I am sharing with you today is a little gift box with a matching card.  I can’t show or tell you what I am going to put in the box because I would hate to ruin the surprise for my Mum lol.  She sometimes sneaks on here to check out what I have been up too lol.

I die cut out the flowers using the Botanical Builder Framelits dies, added colour using a dauber, shaped the flowers, added a rhinestone and adhered using a Glue Dot.  I then cut out the leaves, stamped veins, shaped and adhered using a Glue Dot.

Now on to telling you a little about the matching gift box.  Rather than cutting out the little hearts from each panel I decided to alternate each panel and keep some solid, what do you think?  I must admit it was a little time consuming adhering all the little hearts but I think the end result was worth it.

I also taped (just the centre) of the lace doilie and adhered it to the inside of the box, I think it finishes it off nicely.  One of the things that I love about the lace doilies is that one side is white and the other is very vanilla, pretty cool huh.

You also have the option to put a little battery operated tealight candle (not a real candle) inside the box to light it up at night.  I know it is not that dark when I took the photo but you get the drift.
