Gift Packaging

I enjoy making my own gift packaging, but rarely do it because items like the one pictured here are hard to ship, and also because I reserve the effort for those that I know will truly appreciate it. Since most of those people live several hours away from me, they don't often get gifts that are packaged like this. For this little basket box, I used a purchased die-cut box made from glossy cardstock, and stamped the flowers with Versamark ink, then brayered a lavender ink over that. The flowers aren't sharply visible, but this technique resulted in a slightly aged, subtle pattern. I completed it with pink tissue paper, sheer white ribbon, and a leaf charm attached with gold cord.
