Happy Mother's Day!

I'm giving my mom some designer hand soap along with coordinating towels but thought I needed something else so I constructed a box to hold 3 dark chocolate truffles using the Sizzix Box 3 die.  I decorated it using Sizzix lattice strips around the edge (no inserts) and on the top (stamped inserts separately).  The large rose is from Susan's Garden (Sizzix), the smaller ones are from the pine cone die.  The branch, fern and leaves were also cut from Sizzix dies.  I stamped 'Happy Mother's Day!' in archival inks all over a sheet of tissue paper and crumpled it so the truffles will nest in it.  Of course I now needed a gift tag so from coordinating paper I cut a rectangle, folded it in half, then die cut the Sizzix movers & shapers cameo and stamped 'Happy Mother's Day' inside the frame.  All card stock is Bazzill.


  1. Your box for your Mom is beautiful ! The flowers are so pretty, and I LOVE the lattice on the sides. Great job, my friend ! dianne
