Gifts for Some Special People

Over the weekend of the 10th to 12th, the store had Wendy Vecchi teaching several classes. The Maya Road Design Team also came in for the weekend. They shared some ideas and took some classes too. It was a busy, fun weekend. Knowing that they were coming, Carolyn thought it would be neat to make each of the group a box or something that could be filled with some candy and given to them as a welcome. Several of the design team worked on these. I think they turned out pretty neat and am sharing them here as ideas to springboard off of.

Carolyn made this vase for Caroline. It turned out really great and you don't ever get the full effect from a photo.



This one was done by Annette for Wendy Vecchi. She used one of the flower boxes by Maya Road for this and personalized it with her own items.


Heidi decorated this Provo Tin for Aubrey. She used a lot of ink techniques along with paper on this tin.




Sherri decorated an old cigar box for Lisa Pace. The majority of the items used are old ephemera from her stash.



This one was for Jessica. It is a box with smaller box trays inside. There are Sassafrass Lass papers on here as well as prima flowers and page bubbles.



Hope you find some inspiration here. Let us know what you have made.

These boxes are delightful. I followed you here from Artsy Mama's harvest gathering. If you have a moment, swing by my harvest gathering. Don't forget to bring your pumpkin!
