Cottage Garden Gift Tags - Week 6 Classes

Sorry I haven't posted for awhile but we have had a very busy few weeks in our household.  Sadly we lost Darren's Grandmother last week and had her funeral on Monday.  Great, as she was fondly called as she was a Great & Great Great Grandmother was 95 and one of those people that always brought a smile to everyone, always had a kind word and more than enough love to go around her huge family. 
Although she no longer suffers she will be hugely missed by us all.

In last weeks class we made a set of gift cards and a box using the Cottage Garden stamp set and Cottage Wall Papers.  The cards are 3 x 3 and have been made fairly neutral so they can be used for any occassion or given away as a gift.  The cardstock is Orchid Oppulance which is sadly going and Rich Razzleberry.  The ribbon is Certainly Celery and the punches used were Eyelet Border and small and large Tags punches.  The box was made by a 5 1/8" square and a 5 1/4" square, both scored at 1" around all sides.  This enables the base to fit snugly into the lid.  You can easily alter the box size to fit any card size.
