Gift box

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


So, we want to see something you have created from scratch, maybe an embellishment or special papercraft item - get creative!  And don't forget to tell us what you have handmade in your blog post!

Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo with a fab prize...

I have made my own gift box to present some sweet treats in.

I didn't have a template, I just decided what size box I needed and built up the sides of the box with 2 layers of cardboard to make it really sturdy.

I left some small flaps at the bottom of the box so it could be attached to the base then covered the inside of the base with another piece of card.
I decorated the sides with pretty paper, some die cut corners, lace, twine and flowers.

Then the naughty bit...some salted caramel mocha fudge to go inside...mmmmmm!
If I've tempted you to have a go at making some of this delicious fudge yourself then you can find the recipe here!
