I've been seeing a huge amount of lovely cards using a handmade shadow box on the internet recently and when I needed a gift box for a bracelet I was giving to a friend for her birthday, it seemed like a great idea to combine the two which is how today's project evolved.
After making the shadow box, I made a sleeve using a coordinating card stock that matched the DSP I'd chosen from the Pretty Petals stack - I really do like the patterns on this paper.
The matching bow is made really simply using the Bow Builder punch from Stampin' Up. I don't use this useful punch enough.
The gift box went down really well with my friend, almost more than the bracelet!
