How time flies! Already its the end of February and Spring has nearly arrived (yeah!). Along with Spring, the month of March brings Mothers Day. I have been busy all week working on a few Mothers Day and Easter themed designs. Today's crafty morsel is a little gift box, designed with Mum in mind, but lets not forget Mothers day can be for Grans, Aunties and role models too!
I made the base and lid the same. Using double sided card stock, I have cut 2 large scalloped circles, and 2 long strips (one slightly wider than the other). For the base, the wider strip of card was scored, cut and glued into position. The lid was made the same way, after I had cut a window into the remaining scalloped circle. Once the sides of the lid were glued into place, I attached a piece of acetate for the window, and glued into place inside the lid.

I chose the Sarah Kay 'Spring Blossoms' stamp from Stampavie for the decoration. She is a real cutie, and the wispy - whimsical style of the image seemed perfect for Mum!
The image was stamped in black ink and water coloured to match the card stock, then cut out and stuck to the lid of the box. I finished with a co-ordinating ribbon, and just need to fill it with something tasty - maybe some chocolates!

There will be more with this wonderful stamp to come, I think I must have inked her up about a hundred times- lol!

Thanks for looking, Katie.
