Timeless Tuesday...bag or box..I'll choose box



Well fellow stampers today at Flourishes it's time for the Timeless Tuesday challenge and Miss Dee says do a bag or box and make it your own. Well since I've got the being a bag down pat I decided to get out of the box and decorate one.

As you can see I used a Macy's box which is not from here in cowtown but from my former abode in Michigan. DD came over to direct me in the making of a box but as fate would have it...she just took it upon herself to do it. I guess you can't teach an old bag new tricks and it's easier to just do it for the old broad. Well this box is to house a gift for my DGD Elizabeth who is making her First Holy Communion this Thursday evening. She loves pink so what better then these gorgous blossoms from the Cherry Blossoms set. Stamp, use die, and then do some paper tole which I have done for so many years. Back in the day we did the dimension by using silica gel to raise the image ( probably why I'm so doped up to this day) but in this case I used some little foam raise me uppers. Classy, soft, and sweet just like dear Ellie. The lovely pink satin ribbon sets off the image and of course needed a bow...done with the Bow Easy which makes making a bow pretty darn easy. Guess that's why it's called the "Bow Easy".

All done fellow stampers and friends. Raining and pouring and the old man is snoring...oh that's wrong now but it is raining and they came and took my door off so they can paint it and return it as ordered. Should be back in a day or so then I'll finally be able to take a picture. Happy week fellow bloggers and see you soon.

Beautiful box and love the cherry blossoms. Soft and elegant. If they took your door off, how are you keeping the riff raff out?? Putting Julie on guard without her coffee??! Was that "old man snoring" a hint that you found a cowboy to snuggle with? Here's hoping anyhow!
