A gift box with sunflower seeds

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

Myself, I had a good time cleaning up my house this weekend and glad I got a help from my hubby  :) and now I’m just preparing myself for work day tomorrow! Yep, I’ve got tons of things to do on my list but before the morning comes, I'd like to upload my post! :)

Glad that this weekend I had a little time to make a small gift box from my scraps papers and double tape container (I’m not sure what to say in English, I hope it’s correct). I’m using sunflower seed shell (now I hope I’m writing this correctly too). I like eating sunflower seed for snack and love it too much that it had succeeded drying my lips :P Not only I like the taste but I also like the shell too, eh, not for snacks. I like the shell because of its uniqueness and also because I don’t have the heart to throw it away :P

So to make these shell and scraps useful, I made this small gift box using the sunflower seed shell which has been colored by acrylic paint (I don’t have oil paints but I’m sure it will work better), scrap light blue card paper, green satin ribbon, and colorbox inkpad for the leaves images. If you don’t have sunflower seed, you can also use macadamia nut shell or something similar with it that you may find on your kitchen or garden..

Thank you for visiting me here and happy crafting and working! :)
Love you all!
