Oh, What Fun Gift Box Video Tutorial & Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello my friends! Welcome to the November edition of the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! 

This month, we’ve got an inspiration photo! I love when we have an inspiration photo! 

This one was a no brainer for me. I love everything in this picture and wish my home looked just like this! So, I was struck with inspiration and made a sweet little gift box. 

I really focused on the pillow and the soft burlap feel I imagine it feels like that. I chose Very Vanilla, Real Red and Crumb Cake to be be my focus. 

I had a hard time deciding on which sentiment to use because we have so many wonderful “word art,” but decided to use this one from Oh, What Fun because it was the right size for a box. And because this set is on sale right now!! You need this all sentiment stamp set! Get it before the end of November and you save 25%! 

I originally made this box as a gift box for sweets or even jewelry. But, then I thought how fun it would be to make a set of little matching “baby cards” to go inside! That would make it a fully handmade gift! 

On the outside, I brought those pine boughs in and added a little sparkle them with my Wink of Stella Brush. I used a cute Christmas Trinket and a Twine bow to finish it off. 

So, check out the video and see how I made the box, how I made the rectangle stitched shape and how I made the baby envelope!
