Hello everyone. Today I am going to present a GIFT BOX with TAG. It’s a unique type of box with a small tag on top and unmistakable words expressing your love for the person receiving it – LOVE IS SWEET.

Traditionally Gift boxes are covered and the person receiving it has to open it to see what’s inside. However this Gift Box is open and hence can be kept on the table / study. The Tag on top of it, with a small message for your loved one and the big words “Love is Sweet” would always be around you, reminding you of the sweet relationship you share with your loved one.

The base of the box is made from fine acid free high GSM paper, specially die cut using Martha Stewart Punch-Vintage Floral. To add to the vintage look of the base, it is distressed using Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy distress ink. The Box is made from the same paper but covered with a lovely pattern paper Graphic 45-French Country and its top highlighted using a lovely lace.

The back / mast of the box is made using Spellbinder dies-Labels Seventeen and Graphic 45 pattern paper. Since this would be visible at all times, special attention is given to its look. I have kept it neat with just one trinket in the centre-Prima Vintage Trinkets. The tag on which your message would go is made from Spellbinder dies-Labels Seventeen. and used Graphic 45 pattern paper-French Country
 (available at crafters corner )and used Distress Stain-tarnish Brass on the edges of the tag. The message “Love is Sweet” goes on the left. The words are made using MDF wooden embellishment.(lots of collection--contact shalini mittal)

Finally to accentuate the LOVE, an embellishment of butterfly is placed at the centre of the box frame and, of course, some chocolates to express the sweetness of your love.
