Boxes galore!

What a fabulous week.  I received the most gorgeous gift in the post from my fabulous friend Archi, she's told me she was sending a little something.  Little!!  It's huge and a totally perfect gift.  It's a beautifully decorated box filled with 8 individually wrapped Green & Blacks chocolate bars, each with it's own little gift tag.  If you could pack love in a parcel it would look just this.  Thank you Archi, you have made my day.

Don't they look like beautiful books when they're stacked like this.

So of course I had to make some cupcakes!!  This is the last one as they were demolished in the office!

 I also got an honourable mention over at  Papercraft Star for my vintage inspired card.  Thank you xxx

Honorable Mention Button !
Just a quick crafting post from me today as I'm off to the ballet to see The Sleeping Beauty by Scottish Ballet in Newcastle and even better the lovely Louisa is coming with me.  I told you I was having a good week.

So an eCraft plus some files from SVGcuts is just a dream recipe for making boxes.  Especially as these files were a freebie back in December (thank you Mary & Leo).  These boxes are made in one cut, so basically they take minutes to make.  The texture on the card comes from using Core Impressions that is already pre-embossed.  
I was inspired by challenges at:
Just Us Girls - 3D valentine's day
Allsorts challenge - one or more heart
Anything Goes Challenge - to the one I love

How cute is that flower?

Supplies used:
SVG files - one-piece boxes from, ramblin' rose from
Card - Core'dinations Core Impressions My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection

Thanks for popping by
Love ya
