Cards, Gift Boxes and Gift Bags


I love Geishas!!! I was wondering round Lakeland one day when I spotted some Geisha silhouette cut-outs, and of course I had to buy them. This card also combines Amy Butler Sakura (meaning blossom) matt paper with a hand-stitched image of Oriental poppies. I'm really into stitching on paper at the moment- and I'm currently working on a picture of the Japanese goddess Sengen (the goddess of blossom and Mount Fuji) in a similar way.

One of my favourite boxes, it seems almost Oriental in style. When I started making these boxes and bags I got a bit carried away- as usual, and ended up with nearly 50 of them. I figure that if they don't sell I will simply use a few of them as wedding favour boxes. All boxes are made from cardstock, and embellished with cut-outs, ribbons, brads, rhinestones and charms.

Another favourite- I rather like the shape, and strings of pearl beads are my new thing of the moment!



The two above were originally made for the Ostara season, they are big enough to contain a few small eggs, but sadly we may have to wait for the next one now!




Take away carton! I like this shape so much I'm considering creating a set for Halloween.



Set of three boxes which turned out pretty but really quite small. I suppose you could put really tiny gifts in them but otherwise their purpose is purely decorative.
I love this shape, it opens from the bottom, and is decorated with brads, cut-outs and paper ribbon.


These are a good size, so much so I had toyed with the idea of making a few more and using them to containg altered mini- books and such. What do you think?
