A Little Gift Box

I have been having fun with a template book of gift boxes and tags from K&Company. Although it is Christmas themed, I've discovered that if I use the back of the templates rather than the front, they work for general themes. This week I made this little box to contain a tiny gift for Paula. Like Clarice from Storybook Woods, I'm discovering the fun of prisma glitter! Additionally, both giant and little buttons, rick-rack, and satin ribbon add to the charm and fun! A holiday gift tag made a great hinge so the lid can open and close. There's something very relaxing about creating something 'just because'.


  1. I agree with you about the relaxing part! I love to make 'just because gifts'! Your little box is charming!

  2. Thanks, Donna --- I do love the benefits of crafting when it comes to relaxing! I wish dishwashing had the same qualities for me!

  3. So cute!!!

  4. Creating "just because" is the best kind of creating.
