for my project today i made 2 super easy gift boxes
these are super simple to make i promise. you can get both written and visual directions for this from the kraftoutlet
i also added some canvas bags that i stamped on they both fit right inside the box.
i made these before we received our stamps from stephanie  how cool was it that one of the stamps in the set matched perfectly with my project :)
the stamp is from the with love set which you can see in full on friday
isnt this font so pretty!i just added a ribbon and crocheted flower and some colorbox fluid chalk
i also made a male version of the box. i havent added anything inside..yet.
again i used a stamp from the with love set . dont you just adore how each word is a different font.
i also love how this stamp matches how i feel when you leave me your sweet comments :)
and im sure the rest of the DT gals feel the same way so be sure to go back to the WD blog and take a look at their awesome projects for today and leave them your sweet words. have fun playing along with our stamp reveal peaks . see ya tomorrow with another peek! xxxshelly

Pretty, pretty! Love the flat, square shape of these, Shelly, and you did a beautiful job dressing them up! What a lovely choice of stamps for that first box. I like how when you open it, you see those beautiful images LOVE the different fonts on that second stamp!

OMG Shelly what an terrific job with these boxes (I just got a flash of Tigger when I wrote funny just thought I would share). Can you tell I am over tired. Anywho, these boxes are totally gorgeous, and you are right they are super easy to make and fun, made one a bit back. I love the colors of these, and the whole vintage feel. Perfect choice of sentiments too. :) I am so excited.;)
