Vintage style gift box and a gorgeous vintage giveaway

By Mary

I made this box from scatch from ordinary white card and decorated it with a 'Princess' vintage style booch, Zva crystal lines, ivory sweetheart blossoms and hip rosebuds and cream satin ribbon.  I used 11mm ivory pearls for the flower centres and the feet of the box.  I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch set to make the white lacy edge.  The paper is 'Country Lady' from Lili of the Valley and I made the paper flowers with it as well, using a 'Sun Kissed Fleur' die set by Heartfelt Creations.  I was really pleased with how the box turned out, especially the white lacy edge - I have to admit that it took 2 goes before I got perfect results but I think it was worth it.
