Simply Elegant Box

Just realised the downside to grandchildren. All the lovely bugs and things they pick up at nursery and primary school đŸ˜† Shandy and I were not very well over the weekend and just as he was recovering enough to return to school, we got a phone call from the local youth workers to say he and Arwen had been in contact with someone who had tested positive at youth group so they are now self-isolating until the weekend. Once he gets back to school, there will only be a week until the summer holidays.

As soon as I saw this paper, I knew it was going to be a box. It is such gorgeous paper.

Tag – Basic Black Cardstock 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″

The tag was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in copper. I haven’t yet bought the whole Simply elegant Suite (it’s on my list), so I didn’t have the Elegant Tag Punch. I used the Delightful Tag Topper. I wanted a simple sentiment for my tag and the best wishes sentiment from the Art Gallery set was perfect.

Unfortunately my mini catalogue pre-order hadn’t arrived in time for me to use the gorgeous new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots which would have been perfect for this project. But never fear, they will be popping up on a project using my pre-order soon đŸ˜ƒ

Until next time, happy crafting
