Farm Fresh Gift Box


I am here with my last post as a Guest Designer for The Kraft Journal.  I have enjoyed my month and can 't believe it has come to an end so quickly.  I will not be far though, I love playing along with the challenges here!

For today's challenge, which is Farm Fresh,  I have used a Square Kraft Pillow Box, covered it with some pattern paper and a piece of an old crochet that I picked up at a garage sale.  I then made a tag and used a Round Hole Reinforcement to finish off the punched hole.  Finally I tied the tag on using some Hemp Cording.  I have used some October Afternoon Farmhouse papers and a Unity stamp as well.  Inside the box is some handmade bars of soap, which I thought would make a nice little thank you.


Be sure to head on over to The Kraft Journal to see what the rest of the designers have created.

ETA This project was a featured project over at 2Peas!
