I really thought I would be organised for this blog hop and have really enjoyed researching some lovely box ideas. Craig is away this week with work and now that all my assignments have been submitted my evenings are my own.....although there is the distraction of an amazing seasonal catalogue. My evenings haven't been my own I have been bust getting middle son ready for his holiday in Majorca and will be sunning himself as you read this.

My first box design is an amazing 'twisted' box cased from a fellow stampin up member on Pinterest.
I will be honest this took a couple of attempts as I thought you had to be creative with the sealing of the box top and bottom. But no, all you do once it is sealed a gentle twist and reinforcing of the scoring folds the box twists on itself. Great for hiding a special little gift...this would compliment the jewellery we sell in the tearoom.

I really need to work on my images and presentation and lighting.

For these two boxes I have used Affectionately Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper 
(A favourite of mine)

This is what you see when you open the box but a gentle twist opens it to reveal the gift inside.

I also found these cute little boxes that suit the cute little Foxy builder punch and the other is petite petals punch.

This is just a quick look at a card I made for Sam a fellow Jem and Nathans new carer, but also made the same for a friend having a difficult time...its not a box or packaging but I loved the 3D design that gives the illsuion it is a full jar.

Thank you for looking, 

Tracy and Nathan
