Elegant Wedding Gift

Well I scheduled this post to go live yesterday and it didn't for some reason. So I'm posting it now and you'll just have to imagine this went live Saturday morning.....

Remember this? Well I did some additional decorating and stamping and made it into a beautiful wedding album for my friend Sarah who is getting married today. My mum gave me a perfectly sized shallow box last week to keep the album in. I wasn't content with just a plain and simple box. So here is how I decorated it to create a suitable wedding gift package.

 I punched the three hearts with my punch from Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper and covered with Crystal Effects (gives them a lovely sheen and smooth finish). The scalloped edge was already part of the box so I measured and cut a width of the matching Elegant Soiree paper and wrapped it around the box. Then finished with retired wide chocolate chip ribbon to keep the box together.
Here is the contents. I wrapped the album with shimmery cream tissue paper and closed with a little flower gem from my stash. And the card can be found here. I had this wedding in mind when I made this little Blueberry Crisp elegant congratulatory card.

Hope you're all enjoying your weekends wherever you are ;0)
