A Gorjuss Box!

Morning fellow crafters, I hope you have plenty of crafty time planned for this weekend. I'm in work today, I might take some stuff in & do a demo, can't decide what to take tho lol!!!
Day off tomorrow yay, so crafty day all day me thinks!

I am so lucky with my job, I get to see all the new crafty stuff before its put on the shelves & as soon as the new Gorjuss collection came in I knew I would end up with a few of the new stamps (I think i have 4 out of the 6 at the moment lol oops)
One of the girlies at work is an absolute darling, just love her to bits. So I thought when I was out a few weeks ago I would treat her & just say thank you, ya know just for being you! I got her a gorgeous scarf with pom poms on. Thankfully she loved it! Well I needed a box to put it in, perfect time to get out my Ultimate & play!!
It also fitted in with this weeks challenge theme over at My Time To Craft, which is....

BOX or BAG 
WITH A TAG TO MATCH!


I don't make many boxes this big, but next time I will use something a bit thicker I think. It all kinda went a bit flimsy when I give it to her, not that you would have noticed lol!



I added this scalloped edge to the side of the box, just to pretty it up a bit more
