Easel Gift Box - lots of pictures

TEDDYBEA_138 ~ Bea in the Meadow

Good Morning Bloggers

I had an afternoon of card making, the other day.
Seeing Jill's post-it easel card over at Teddy Bo, gave me lots of ideas.
Years ago, I use to decorate / embellish bars of soap. These were gifts I'd give to friends at Christmas / Birthdays, to place in their chest of draws.

So off to the shop.
Two bars of soap and lots of tiny pins - I decorated with lace / ribbon and Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I have to say my fingers and thumbs were very sore, pushing the pins through the soap.
Now I know why I stopped making them!

This is the side view of the easel with back panel decorated too.

Box measures 6 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches.
Depth is 1 1/2 inches. So I'm now making a box to match.
Papers used are Magnolia " SOMETHING NEW - SOMETHNG OLD "
Used brown and kraft card to matt and layer.
Butterfly metal embellishment is from Wild Orchid Craft too.
Sentiment LOTV.
Martha Stewart Punch

Bea as been coloured with Poly Pencils. The inspiration to the colours as come from the wonderful June over at Yorkie Lover. The colour combo she used is my favorite and looks so good together.
Thank you June.

Happy Crafting Girls.
