Give Thanks # Creative Card Crew

Please click here for the Teddy Stampers Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning friends,
A big welcome to my lovely new followers, thank you for joining us, i'll hop over to see you very soon.
We have a new challenge for you over at Creative Card Crew,
                                             Give Thanks
 Happy Thanksgiving to all those who will be celebrating on the 25th November.
Or just a  Thank You creation will be fine.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs which can be purchased here

My DT thank you gift box

This is a really easy to make box called 'Slip Cover'  from a download  template by Lauren Meader and can be purchased from My Time Made Easy llc
Dimentions of the finished box: 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/4" deep

I've used Meljen's Little Layered Flowers Complete Set  check them out before 14th November Whimsey Stamps are having 50% off sale.

The  flower DP is Morning Meadows by S.E.I. and has a gorgeous pearlecent finish. I drew over the lines with a brown colouring pencil, and pinned them altogether with a spacer and coloured crystal brad.
Ribbon, brad and spacer are from The Hobby House

Cardstock:  brown Bazzill,  the sage shadow and very vanilla  is from Stampin' Up

Swirls  stamp by Creative Expressions from here
Sentiment stamps:  'thanks a bunch' from the Cute Greetings set by Wild Rose Studio
'Thank you' from the Circle of Friendship set from Stampin' Up

Not a very inspiring pressy I just looked for something that fitted .
You can use just the bottom part... as in the last picture a gift holder.
For more wonderful inspiration on how to decorate it hop over to their site.
