The Reveal

Remember the sneak peeks I gave last week of a project I made as a gift? Well, the gift has been delivered and recognition of receipt received. It was a hit! I'll have to admit there was just a twinge of uncertainty of how it might be received but here the picture is worth a thousand words!
This is my Aunt Sandy, my mother's younger sister. Her birthday was December 22nd. Thanks Auntie for getting photos for me otherwise this post wouldn't haven been possible! See...I realized after I mailed it that I didn't get complete pics of the box...just partials for the teasers I used in last weeks blog! Goofy me!

This is what the box looked like before I altered it. I purchased it from Cat's Creations along with all the other products I used.
I used the Carta Bella "Beautiful Moments" Collections line. The handles are "Antique Metal Door Pulls" by Graphic 45
 Here is another view of the box
. Here's a view of the inside of the box before it was altered.
Inside of the box after alteration revealing handmade cards made of the same paper line inside.

Cards I made to go in the card box.
 I include a mixture of birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You, Anniversary and sympathy.
I kept the cards pretty simple in that I used mostly paper. No ribbons or other embellishments.
 This paper line makes beautiful cards don't you think?
