A Shady Tree Gift Set

When I'm out doing errands, I always have my eye out for things that I can use in my crafting. Sometimes, its fun storage finds, sometimes its sources of inspiration. Last month, while picking up some staple items at Walmart, I ran across this adorable chipboard box.

It already had this fun little scalloped edge to the top...and I of course have tons of paper to alter it up.
I had a hankering to play with this little Tea with Flopsey, and decided he'd look sweet atop the box.

So I got to trimming paper, pulled out my handy Zip Dry Glue (love that stuff!!) and my Basic Grey filing set and got to work.

The box is finished inside and out with green and blue assorted papers. I used the scraps to pull together a matching gift card using this amazing stitched felt flower from Michelle (Thanks Michelle!!) and the ghosty shapes that Kim sells at MFT. (I used the flowers, which seem to be out of stock... but she does have the hearts, in stock...)

The box measures 5x5x2 inches, and could hold all manner of fun little gifts, candles, candy, tea bags, cookies etc....

If you happen to be interested, the little ensemble (card with a matching envelope, and box) is available for sale HERE, its now Etsy listed!

Moving forward, I'm going to **try** to be better about adding things to Etsy just as soon as I've shown them here. In fact, some days, they might be available for sneak peek on my Etsy Store before I even show them here!
