A Bevvy of Boxes - #4

The delightful Jenny Hayward recently had a post on a thing called a Boxy Bag. Now I LOVE making things to hold goodies....so I took up the challenge to make one and see what I could come up with.

Miss 6's 1st class teacher (who was also the teacher of Master of Cool (now 10)in the same grade) had a birthday...in September!!!!!! She is a delightful lady and so nurturing to the children, so I wanted to do something unique for her. A Boxy Bag was a good place to start. I also recently acquired "A rose is a Rose" set, which is sadly now retired. I found this card on SCS and I used it as a starting point. Now the large rose from this set is too big for the boxy bag...and I had the brainwave of miniturising the card on the bag to co-ordinate it. This is the gift set....



The card.....



Up close and up on dimensionals



And the sentiment....



The Boxy Bag front......and back......




 And side.......



It held 2 Robert Timms Coffee Bags and 4 Twinnings Herbal Tea Bags (for when you need to come down off the caffeine high....LOL!!) It was all finished off with a small box of Lindt Chocolates and I stamped a white gift bag with the rose and leaf to tie everything together.



 











I am liking this co-ordination thingy a lot and will be back later with another couple of co-ordinated things I have done. Thanks for enduring this post till the end.

Oh this is just gorgeous. I love all my gift packaging and card etc matching too. You've made a beautiful set Lynda and I bet the teacher is going to love it.

Isn't "little Jenny" sooooo clever. We call her "little Jenny" for VERY obvious reasons!!! My other nickname is Jenny Wren! She is always coming up with something special! Must try these ones, too! Gorgeous job of coordinating everything Lynda! Oh ... and thanks for the "drenching" sympathy. I am nice and dry now!!! Hugs xxaxx

Gorgeous set Lynda, all so lovely and I'm sure very well received. Gotta love the whole matchy-matchy thing SU does! The boxy bag looks great and I'm inspired to have a go myself.
