Bees Knees Val Gift Box


Did you see the tutorial for this cool card holder by my friend Val from Cal? Dang, she writes THE best tutorials! Thanks Val! You and the Scor-pal are a match made in heaven! :)

This little box holds six cards with envelopes. I used the stamp set called Bees Knees, and the designer paper by My Mind's Eye, called Cheery Flowers. The ribbon on the side is retired Ribbon Originals by Stampin'Up!
I made the bee wings sparkle by using my all time favorite Quickie Glue Pen and Sugar Sparkles. The ribbon went on perfectly with ZipDry! LOVE that glue!


The cards are all simple, but have that extra shazam with the glitter. I really wanted to add a pen with matching designer paper to the side (there is room), but I'm out of pens, so I'll have to do it next time. LOVE this box... Val is BRILLIANT! See
her tutorial here.

Sorry for being a bad blogger last week, but having the kids home and trying to get my work done is really difficult! I'll try and be better this week. Hope you are having a great summer so far! See you soon, and thanks for stopping by!
