Card and Gift Card Box in One

Made a little box to hold gift cards (McDonald's Gift Cards for Lin to use for Hazelnut Iced Coffee!!!) and the top part opens to reveal the card part.  Well, candy would work in here too, of course!!!
You can find the best selection of anything Magnolia HERE at Magnolia-licious!  That awesome Diana is always looking out for us and giving us the best possible prices and services that she can!!!

Here are the Maggie items and links I used on this project:
MINI #218 SWEET TILDA
#4 LEAF AND SWIRL DOOHICKEY DIES
#7 OLD SWEDISH LACE DOOHICKEY DIE
#18 ROSE LEAF DOOHICKEY DIE
#25 GRASS DOOHICKEY DIE

Sorry the doily flowers are out of stock right now, but the #2 PEONY DOOHICKEY DIES would work as well for this flower.
Have also used the SU lattice embossing folder, Spellbinder tag die and Punch Bunch butterfly punch.  A little white gel pen on the butterflies and inked the edges of the flower petals and leaves.  Believe it or not, the center is made from the Grass Doohickey Die!  It is twirled around like we do in quilling.

Made the box by trial and error, so don't have a pattern, but if you go to Scor-Pal, they have lots of fantastic patterns that can be used for this type of thing.  I just can't imagine trying to make cards or boxes without my Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy!!!

The verse was from a wonderful present that my Dear Friend Marion had sent me, so this one is computer generated.  Many of you know Maz and she is going to have a procedure tomorrow that we are quite concerned about.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers to give her strength.  She is such a sweetie and I'm sure she would love the support!

Off to see what trouble I can get myself into!!!

Enjoy every day!
Patti Jo

Patti Jo, this is totally awesome.. I am sorry I have not replied earlies, but couldn't get my puter to let me reply to anyone so had to save all the cards until I could fix my stupid thing and glad I wated cause I have all day to savor these cards and this by far is the best one.. so gorgeous.. I love the flower (so glad I got that Doohickey die), love the mini Tilda used and the frame, the quote used and the idea of enclosing the gift cards.. such a wonderful idea for a friend or family member.. Love the colors.
Hugs, Jean

Do you think I have the nerve to try something like this - oh dear, I had better stick with my paper bag cards. Your art work is out of this world and and your project leaves me sighing!
