Gift Box!

Hello all hope your well and you had a good day
Thank you for popping by 
While clearing out in the craft room l came across
Some old Backing Papers and this cute Gift Box that
l had printed long ago and didn't get round to making it
So here it is all l had to do was cut it score it and stick it together

You might reconise the bow this is recycled from a card that l gave 
A family member they give them back after use so l reused it again
The Gift box was a freebie from this site Here check it out you might
Even like some of the freebies there
Items used was remains of a card stock (Snippets)
Recycled Button, Twine and Ribbon from stash
Challenges l'd like to enter into
Thank you for your time
Take care Sandra H xx

    I've peeked at the templates - off for another look!
