Special Packaging

Still trying to get to grips with blogger.....can't preview now...left and right came up for the pictures..but looking at the hmlt coding..it looks like they will still be centered...so I feel like I'm flying blind here...
My next door neighbours' daughter just turned 21 and is in her final year at uni studying fashion design specialising in corstets and bridal wear....I was going to buy her a bottle of champagne but at the last min I remembered her mum telling me that she could only drink vodka because of her allergies...so I made her a pin cushion that straps onto the back of your hand. Then the question was how to package it, so I made a box decorated using the bird stamps by Sam Poole from "Creative Expressions"
I guilded the box using the bird stamps and the flourish from Sam Poole's stylish Chirstmas set. The inside of the tag was coloured and stamped with distress ink.
"Sunday Stampers - Red" (the box is dark red...hope that counts! "Alphabet Challenge - Feathered friends" "Crafty Catz - Anything goes" "Inspire me Fridays - Anything goes"
