Life Delights Gift Box...

So as you know I have been working on some cards for my friends Birthday gift. I decided I wanted to make something special to put them in and also something she could use there after. So I went to Michael's and got a Craft Box and some Modge Podge and went to town!!! :D Her favorite color is pink so I decided I would use the Life Delights DP. I absolutely LOVE this paper!!! I used all patterned paper to cover the entire box. I used the Modge Podge to adhere the paper to the box and when the box was completely covered and dry I added another light coat of Modge Podge to the box to give it a shine. I have to say that my favorite is the inside of the box. I love Sweet Leaf and Chocolate together. I also love the design on the paper...very chic!!! (It's hard to see the inside of the box in this pic...sorry)
I covered the top of the box with the cute DP in the paper pack that had these flourishes on it. I wanted to do as little stamping as possible on the lid of the box and this specific DP worked out perfect. I just love all the flourishes...they look so whimsical to me. I stamped all the words on the paper using my Playful Flourishes stamp set. I also added some sparkles and tiny flowers, and I think it gave it a nice touch. In the bottom left hand corner I added a brown felt flower from Creative Cafe and then pop dotted a Big Pinks flower on top of it. And to personalize the box I bought an "E" for her first initial at Michael's for $.50. I liked this "E" because its got the same whimsical feeling that the flourishes on the box have. I added some satin lilac ribbon to the "E" and placed in on top of the flowers. :D Next is just a side view of the box. I covered the bottom of the box with the same DP just without the flourishes and also added some striped DP to cover the edge of the lid. Overall I am pretty please with how this came out and my friend absolutely LOVED it!!!!
