Thankful Gift Box

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away?!?! Where has the time went to??? I thought I would share a little gift box I created for ClearSnap.

I carefully took a part and emboss each section of the box with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder. Next, I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Candies Yam, Red Barn and Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub in random spots to give a wood grain texture on the box. Once I got the desired wood grain effect that I wanted I put the box back together.

I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.

I cut from the Crinoline fabric flowers using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and lightly ink the center of each flower with Canary Ink.

I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Next I laid each flower diecut on top of each other and pinched the center of all the flowers and shape.

I inked the feather stamp from the Thankful Stamp Set with Wicked Back Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I did this twice and fussy cut each feather.
Next, I inked and stamped in Leather Ink the “Thankful” sentiment and two leaf sprigs. I also inked the edges of the sentiment with Butter Chalk Ink and fussy cut the leaf sprigs out and inked another leaf sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder, set with a heat tool and fussy cut image out.

I glued the feathers, leaf sprigs and several loops of cording and thread to the upper corner of the box. I added the “Thankful” sentiment to the lid and finish off with flowers and sequins. 

I would like to also submit this project for the following challenge:

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!
