LSS Birthday Gift Box

Lindsays All Around Phrases Digital Stamp Set
Well, this week on Lindsays Stamp Stuff, it's packaging week. I love to make boxes and gift wrap I made this cute little box with a custom tag. I did steer away from Christmas and made a Birthday Gift Box complete with LSS tag using the All Around Phrases Digital Stamp Set. I have a couple of birthdays for family members around Christmas time, so I have somebody in mind for this one.
There are so many options with this digital stamp set, because it has so many sentiments wrapped into one and you don't have to just use them for tags. You could repeat them and use for gift wrapping, place a picture in the centre, change the colour of the text, add layers using decoupage effect...................and on and on. I have layered this Happy Birthday two layer sentiment onto some square burgandy card and then embellished with some handmade quilled flowers and glued pearls.
I made the box really quickly using some white card and then finished up with a box lid. Before gluing it together I stuck some My Minds Eye paper on all sides of the box and lid. Then I tied the box up with some wide organza ribbon and tied my tag to this.............ehh voila.Now if you have been looking at Lindsays digital images, then now is the time to pop on over to her store as she has a fantastic offer on. When you buy two sets from Lindsays Stamp Stuff, you get one free. If you purchase the two sets you want and then tell Lindsay which set you want for free in the comment box, she will send this to you after purchase has been made. This off is on until the 23rd December, so please don't miss it.
Also keep an eye out on Lindsay's personal blog, as she is giving away free Religious Christmas Stamp set today, which would be great if you haven't had time to do your quick Christmas makes.
Anyways that's it from meeeeee take care and wrap up warm. Nettie.xx


  1. What a beautiful box and an absolutely gorgeous tag! Great job Nettie! I totally love it.

  2. That is lovely! I love the quilled flowers, what a great idea to put them on a gift box, I put some on a card onece and I had to mail it in a box because it was so thick and I have some on a scrapbook page that i had to hand on the wall cuz it wouldn't fit in an album LOL, but it is perfect on a box, why didn't I think of that?

  3. Wow, absolutely gorgeous. And I was flabbergasted when I read that you 'made' the box. It looks awesome!!!!! How come mine never look this good, lol.

    Absolutely beautiful tag & box set.

  4. A beautiful box and the tag is gorgeous. Love everything about it.
