Bountiful Harvest Gift Box (3-D Saturday)
Happy Saturday, happy last day of October, and, if you celebrate it, happy Halloween!
Autumn continues its forward momentum, and as the leaves and weather change, so does our crafting. I'm seeing more and more Christmas projects out in Blogland, but today for our 3-D Saturday share, we are stopping and 'smelling the roses', so to speak. Melissa Craig has created a fabulous Fall gift box, rich in color and Fall feel. This little box and its coordinating over-sized bow were created using the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board. Now this is not a tool that I have ever used, but after seeing what Melissa was able to do with it, it's going straight to the top of my wish list! Melissa used the quilty sunflower image and one of the sentiments from our "Stitchy Fall" digi set to embellish the bow piece. I love how all the many rich colors of Fall are represented here! The paper bow with the sunflower as the center is so sweet, and the thick twine that Melissa used to tie on the tag adds that bit of rusticness that Fall seems to dictate. A yummy container for, perhaps an equally yummy Autumn treat, or a small "I'm thankful for you" gift...so many possibilities! :-)
