Special gift box and card

Some time ago I started to put together the awesome Merry and Bright star boxes and as I did so, I wanted to make them usable gift boxes and so I added another inside layer so there is a base and a lid. And today I used my first one for some chocolates :-) Of course this called for a matching card but first the box!

So this is the largest of the Cherry cobbler boxes - and it fits a whole pack of Lindt chocolates! And yes, it has been quite surreal in Australia this week with the terrorist situation in the Sydney Lindt Cafe. This gift is nothing to do with that but I did consider that buying the brand of chocolates might just mean standing in solidarity with the brand. But at the heart of it, they are beautiful chocolates and always bring joy wherever they go :-) And you can see here in the filled box, that I used some Kraft card stock to make the inside of the box - and as it holds the whole of it (despite temptation!) it is a very handy size!

And I was up early this morning to get a card made in time to go with this……and here it is :-)

Yes, it is similar in design to some I shared earlier in the week - just this time in more traditional colours.

And some touches of gold :-)
