Today's project was made with one of the options from 2013's "Sale-a-bration" event that starts tomorrow so basically, everything you see here, other than some adhesive and the little "Just for You" banner on the gift box was made from FREE stuff so cost me practically nothing to make.
This is the "Happy Hello" Simply Sent card kit and in it you get:
* 8 printed, die-cut cards (4 printed with "Hello", 4 left blank)
* 8 printed custom die-cut envelops, with the "Daffodil Delight" pattern on the flap
* 24 "Daffodil Delight" cardstock sticker flowers in 3 different sizes
* 8 "Basic Gray" cardstock sticker strips
* 8 pieces precut "Basic Gray" Baker's Twine - a colour that's exclusive to this kit
* 8 adhesive-backed rhinestones
All that within 1 option from the "Sale-a-brations" list of exclusive items ~ blimey!!
I used one of the blank cards and make this little gift box, (forgot to take a picture after I put the gift inside - d'Oh! but the dimensions are 3" x 1-/4" x 3-5/8", so quite a good size), and it was really easy to make ~ if you want to know the dimensions, just get in contact.
I also made up the card from the kit, but obviously there is nothing to stop you using whatever you have in your crafty stash to dress it up however you want and use the embellishments you get in the kit on other projects.
