ie - gifts, Wrapping/box/bag,
or use an image of a gift

Our Lovely Host for the challenge is Bettina

So what did I make then?
well I have been wanting to make one of these Milk Carton style Boxes for a while so what better excuse? than a Birthday Party, a great box to make as a Party box full of treats 
I have used Meljens Designs - Party Time Cat, and a Hero Arts Background stamp! and I crochet the flower from twine too! and the image is coloured with distress inks and stardust pens.

Here are the challenges I would like to join in with:
