Gift Set

No I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I have been busy visiting my Father-in-Law at the hosiptal, Christmas shopping and making gifts. I have tried to stay off the computer this weekend except to do some Christmas shopping for a couple of things that my husband and I couldn't find for the kids when we were out shopping together Friday night. I did find the couple of things we were looking for.
Well on to my creations. A couple of weeks ago I found a blog "Kirstens Blog" and she makes the most beautiful boxes. When I saw this box with drawers and the top opens up to a card I just had to make one. They are very time consuming though. I couldn't help to use these sweet Twinkling Tots stamp from The Greeting Farm. Isn't she just beautiful!!
Here is the tag that I made to go with it.

Here is a side view of the box showing a drawer.

I stamped a sentiment ,each a verse from the bible with a stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps.
I didn't have any drawer pull hardware to use so I had to use some vintage copper brads, that i kept loose to use as the pulls instead.

here is the inside if you untie the ribbon. You just make a 6x6 card and attach it to the top of the box. Kirsten has step by step instructions on her blog.
