Teachers gifts

Hello everybody, Today I have some teachers gifts to show you that I made last week. I decided to keep them pretty simple since I had to make three of them but I still hope you'll like them.
These are two of the three boxes I made holding 8 "Merci" chocolates per box. The box was a template that I bought from a Dutch website that sells templates. There were two PDF files that I printed on cardstock and design paper, cut, put together and decorated. If anybody wants a link to the template just let me know in the comments please and I'll give it to you.
The adorable image is by Whipper Snapper Designs and she's named "Little girl with dotted present". I colored her three times in the same way with my Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced her. The ribbon that ties the two sides of the box together used to be available from Wild Orchid Crafts but is no longer available.
On the other side of the box I added some pretty roses and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts. There isn't much room to decorate on this box but can't make a gift without some flowers on them.
I packed all three boxes in cellophane wrapping foil and decorated that with again the bright pink ribbon and brads and blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like my little presents for my kids teachers. I'll leave you with a list of Wild Orchid Crafts products used.

Girly For You

Hello everybody!

The card I'm showing you today will be on my personal blog later today as I'm taking part in a blog hop to celebrate the release of the image which is part of a whole new line of rubber stamps, but I got permission to show it already here on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog.
The pretty stamp that I've used is called For You and she's been drawn by MiRan for Whimsy Stamps. Since she's really girly I decided to go all girly on this one. So pretty pink and creamy flowers, pearly stars, lovely pink seam binding... just what I love to use!
A close up of the image, as always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced. I've added some yummie stickles here and there and some gloss to the balloons.
More details on my card on my personal blog later today but for now here is the list of gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts products that I've used:

Mixed Pink Carnation
Mixed Earth tone Wild Roses 30mm
Mixed Pink/White Cosmos Daisy Stem Flowers
Deep Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms
Baby Pink Sweetheart Blossoms
White Bead Berry Spray
Star Shaped White Pearl Beads
Pink Seam Binding

Have a great day everybody!!!
