Penny Black Saturday Challenge #44 - A Gift


This week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge we have to make a gift.
I've really enjoyed making this although I have to admit it was made easier by my Cricut and the Tags, Bags and Boxes cartridge! I cut the box out of a piece of 12x12 paper and added acetate to the window.
The stamped images are cut out from the Penny Black stamp Easter Exchange. These have been coloured with watercolour pencils and Whispers pens.
I've finished the box with some sticky ribbon and flowers, then added some yummy sweets!
