Boss' Day Gift

Boss' Day is October 16th and I thought I would create a one of a kind gift for my boss that she could use. I work for Girl Scouts and we are always sending out thank you cards and personalized notes to our volunteers and community partners. I picked up this plain recipe box from Michaels and decorated it with the Girl Scout K & Co paper along with some i am roses, bling and a flower made from an old dictionary and glimmer misted.

Inside, I created 8 simple cards made with the same paper.

Here is the back. It says "I make a difference"
Once the cards are gone, she can always use it to store a secret stash of cookies :)

Steampunk Debutante Cigar Box Part 2

So my husband showed my Steampunk Debutante box from last weeks post to one of his cigar smoking buddies. The next day, what did I find in my livingroom? Check it out! Piles and piles of cigar boxes. I hope he didn't smoke all of these cigars himself!

Steampunk Debutante Cigar Box

I must be the only wife in the world who encourages her husband to smoke cigars. The nostalgic boxes they come in are so inspiring. I needed a little catch all box to put some if my items I keep down stairs such as glasses, lip gloss, nail file, lotion, etc. So I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper to re-purpose this box.
Inside the lid

Prima flowers, Tim Holtz key and foundations
