Gift box for tags

Hei, sain kunnian koota kollegoiden tagit yhteen, onnittelimme askartelijaystäväämme yllätyslahjalla.
Alkuperäinen suunnitelma ei onnistunut erikokoisten tagien vuoksi, joten piti keksiä muuta. Juuri olin siivoamassa askarteluhuonetta ja poistamassa turhia laatikoita, joista tämä teippilaatikko iski silmään ja vot, just oikea koko.
Hi, week ago my crafting friend celebrated her birthday. Me and 10 other crafters made tags for her and it was my pleasure to put them together. Hmmm. I found this old tape box as cleaning my craft room, it was just the right size for the tags. First I painted the box with white gesso. I used matching papers to cover the box. (Hot of the press, ColorCore)
Etsin varastostani paperit, joista löytyi kaikki värit, joita ystävät olivat käyttäneet. Kulmassa näkyy vähän omaa tagiani. Mukaan vielä lahjakortti.
 Butterfly Crafty Individuals die cut, pearls, painted with DI paints, brad with letter C to help opening the box, crocheted flower with roses, (white paint); Memory Box Chloe Stem die cut, text "Celebrate" Sizzix.
Our friend was surprised and delighted to have this token from us.
Koristeet ovat kannessa, kukkia, virkattunakin (ihan itse), perhonen ja teksti. Sankari oli yllättynyt ja onnellinen muistamisesta.

What a lovely gift to a friend! Great idea to add the tags in a recycled box. Next time I buy something that comes in a box I'll hold on to the wrapping...
