What's a Great Gift Box Without A Great Gift? (SSD #34)

It's Tuesday and that means another fun project with Skipping Stones Design and a new sketch for you to play with, too!!! Here is this week's sketch created by none other than the fabulous Kim Kesti!
It's a pretty great sketch, actually.  Just say'n.  I mean, I kinda love it. 

Instead of going with a card this week, I decided to create a fabulous little gift box! I used the Healing Wings set on the box. I stamped the image and the heat embossed it in gold. I then melted the tips of crayons with my heat gun and used the soft wax to fill in portions of the image. This was a really fun technique! Just one of those crazy ideas that I get from time to time! HA!

And, I really don't think it is fun to have a gift box, even a super duper pretty one, without a GIFT inside! So, I created a little necklace to go inside my box!

Fabric Fan Necklace

It is a fabric fan necklace and it is super cute! I kinda love it, actually. It's for someone special! I hope she loves it, too!

I'm also wicked excited about a project I started last night! It's something new for me and it is something that I was afraid of and decided to just jump in and try! I am loving it! So fun! I will share it with you when I finish it, but it may be a couple of days because, well, it has to speak to me for one last thing and it hasn't done that yet. It will, though. They always do.

Don't forget to check out what the other SSD DT Stamp Tramps have created!
