Matching glitzy gift packaging for jewellery

For Mother's Day I bought my Mum another charm for her bracelet. Here's the gift packaging that I made to match the Mother's Day card I shared with you yesterday.

I used the new pillow box die:
And followed my previous colour scheme and theme:

Stamp sets: Cottage Garden, Occasional Greetings (sentiment)
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla Tangerine Tango
Ink: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango
DSP: Sunny Garden
3mm Taffeta Ribbon: Pumpkin Pie
Punches: Eyelet Border, Curly Label, Crop-a-dile
Bigz Dies: Pillow Box, Flower Daisies 2
Other: Champagne Glass Glitter
Non-SU: Charm

I cut the Pillow Box from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and assembled it using Sticky Strip. A strip of Sunny Garden DSP was punched along both long edges with the Eyelet Border and then those edges were sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink before adhering to the box. The sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla card and then punched with the Curly Label. Using Pumpkin Pie ink the little trio of flowers from the Cottage Garden set was stamped off the label around the sentiment. The label was popped up on dimensionals on the front of the box. Three of the smallest Daisies were die cut from Tangerine Tango, adhered together and sponged at the edges of the petals with matching ink. A large Daisy centre was adhered to the middle of the flower and covered with Champagne Glass Glitter. Once dry the flower was added to the label. A card of Pumpkin Pie was cut to fit inside the Pillow Box and punched each end with the Crop-a-dile. Pumpkin Pie ribbon was threaded through the holes and charm and tied at the back.

Much more personal don't you think?

Love the glass glitter in the flower centres, and flabby colours too! Jan x
