Hi all

I saw this design used as a card on someone's blog (sorry I can't remember who but I think it was Lauren Meader again) and thought it would be perfect for a little gift holder.

It will be great for me to use to give as a gift for my mum and I made two others in different colours which I hope to put on my craft stall later this month.  I've just got to decide what to put in them now!

I hand cut two of the design and dressed up the fronts on each.  The pockets are raised with foam pads and topped with  matching ribbon.  I then made a box from one sheet of 8.5 x 11" cardstock and punched a pattern on the sides that would show.

I've popped my little teddy in here, he's about 6" high and 3" wide so the box will hold a decent size gift.  I plan to fill one for my mum with a house plant.  I tied the handles together with a bit of matching ribbon to make it easier to carry.

Catch you soon.
