…..from a nice Summer Vacation in Barcelona, Spain. It was HOT!
But that’s not what I’m about to show you 🙂 During my vaca, my youngest nephew graduated from Business School and I had made a present and card for him before leaving for Spain.
It is a very clever design that folds into the flat “envelope-type-box” but pops instantly into a box when pulled out of the envelope. I altered the embellishments on mine to make it fit the occasion of graduation and in the right colors as well. I used AC Cardstock in Crimson, Storm and White along with Carta Bella Gold Foiled Dotted paper and MMEs On Trend paper. The sentiments reads “Congratulations”
You’ll find the tutorial for the card here
For the present I made the Lucky Coin Box from Dreaming Tree:
I made mine a bit different from the original to make it fit the present inside: A whole bunch of coins (10 kroners Danish currency) So I made the top of the lid a bit like the design on the coins (with the Queen and all) and made a graduation hat out of the Police Hat from the Police Gift Box and the lid from the Octopus Cookie Box both from Dreaming Tree.
I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Black, White and Wave along with Gold foiled paper and a small red glittery dot as embellishment.
Here’s another pic of the box:
I was so pleased when my nephew wrote me to thank for the gift and told me how much he liked it 🙂 Mission accomplished !!!
Ok….so now I go unpack from my travel……Nahhhhh!!!! I want to spend the entire weekend crafting cause I’m FAAAAR behind on new bundles and kits from my favorite SVG pushers and I need to get rid of my heavy crafting withdrawals.
Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you like this project ❤
