Hello Everyone!! It's Springtime here in Australia, which means it's really Summer! LOL!! We really only have hot and cool where I live (and a few cold days - but that's cold to us, not like those of your who live in Canada or the like) - so although it is September and technically early Spring, the temps are into the mid-30C's (or mid 90's) which I admit is quite above normal for this time of year. So I am getting into Spring/Summer themed projects!! I had a colleague have a birthday recently and she's not really a pink/girly type, so I when for a tropical theme box for her - which I filled with some Darrell Lea Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls! :)
This box really didn't take that long and I was really happy with the way it turned out. I've used some teal coloured card and die cut it with the Glorious Gable Box Die by ODBD. I've put this together using some double sided tape and dots of glue to make it secure (don't want those Peanut Butter Balls going everywhere now do we!). I've made the flower using the Hibiscus Dies and some yellow card - airbrushing some YR18 Copic while still in the die and then all over the stamen as well. I've then shaped the petals and glued it together. The leaves have been made out of green card and die cut with Tropical Leaves Dies and once again airbrushed with Copic - this time G28. I've glued these and the hibiscus to the box as shown. Then sentiment is from Lovely Flower stamp set and has been stamped and cut into a notched tag and attached as shown. These small sentiments are just perfect for little tags to adorn the boxes!
