Tilda & Co Challenge #8

This week's challenge #8 for the Tilda & Co blog was... Wishing You Well.

And here is my take on it, a little gift box for maybe chocolates? I used a Cricut Cartridge to make the box and put in a little acetate window. The tag was also made with the Cricut. All the papers, brads and heart clasp are from a Go Go Greetings monthly kit. And so sorry I don't have a clue who the papers are by :-/. I paper pieced Tilda with the same range of papers. I put in the box some yellow tissue paper so that it shows through the window.

Here is the top view of the box. The flower shape was part of the box and intertwines so you can close the box. I added some dimension to it by putting on some matching blooms with a tiny brad in the middle. The text "Get Well Soon" is from a clear set of stamps by Francoise Read called must have retro words.

If you would like to see all the other Design Team work , why not go to the Tilda & Co Challenge blog? The DT make some really inspirational things. Why not even have a go at a project yourself?

Stamps:- Magnolia & Francoise Read.
Cricut Cartridge:- Tags,bags,boxes & more.
Papers, brads, blooms & heart clasp:- Go Go Greetings monthly kit.
