The girls over at the Cricut Circle Message Board and I had a Secret Partner Box Swap! Yippee!
We each purchased kraft boxes from cricut.com while on sale. See we’re smart too!
Then we decorated and filled them with handmade and purchased scrapbook goodness.
I decided to make various tags and embellishments that my partner could easily use as is, disassemble or embellish even more. I think I have included enough goodies for a nice mini album. In fact I cheated and included one in the shipping box! Don’t tell!
I find the hardest part of making and buying things for others is the thought they won’t like what I like. Anyway, it’s the thought that counts right?
Here are the goodies that filled my box~
I included several sheets of Teresa Collins Fabrications Canvas and Linen collections.
This paper feels so soft and smooth. Love it!
I made tags using TBBM. I used words from A Child’s Year and Paper Pups to creat the cut outs.
And guess what my partner’s initial is?
I used Sophisticated for the letter “R.”
The collection of buttons, brads, butterflies and pins I included~
My box top~
I used Mother’s Day Bouquet for the handmade flowers and leaves.
My box all tied up and ready to go to it’s new home~
A close of up of that charming Tim Holtz bird charm~
I used My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline and Teresa Collins Fabrications collection for all of my decorations and handmade items.
I sure hope my partner likes it!
And here is the wonderful box I received from Scrapperbecka~
First things first~
The card she made me. Isn’t it cute?
My box waiting for me to figure out just HOW to get it out~
Look she even had to add extenders to contain all the goodness she stuffed in it!
A better look at the way she decorated it. Isn’t beautiful? And what a wonderful quote!
All of the wonderful goodies~
I think she included a little bit of EVERYTHING in there~ flowers, ribbon, stamps, brads, buttons, chipboard, tags, notepads, a bracelet and even gel pens for my Cricut!! Oh my!
Thank you SO much Becka! I really appreciate it and can’t wait to start using it ALL!
And most importantly my box will proudly be displayed on my bookshelf.
Also, a BIG thank you to RockinRenee for hosting this swap. This was FUN!!
