Claudia's Box Challenge...

Claudia has set the challenge this week at Papertake... at first glance it looks a really hard task to do, but as promised, it was really quite easy to put together.

I made a gift box for my daughter Emma's pending 18th birthday on the 23rd (St George's Day).
My other daugther, Laura, was born on May 1st (May Day) a year later.
Funnily enough my birthday is March 1st (St David's Day)
and my son Jake, almost made it to a saints day too, he was 3 days early otherwise he would have been born on St Andrews Day!!...which coincidently was my late MIL's birthday too!

Ok, sorry, I went off topic there a bit, lol... This is the box I have made for Emma, I put an acetate window in the lid to give a sneaky peek of the prezzie inside, but not gonna say what is going in the box incase Emma reads this.

Laura..... zip it, not a word, and hopefully Emma won't see this box until the big day ;)
(Emma doesn't blog-hop)

The flowers I bought from The One Stop Scrapbooking Shop and the ribbon was bought from Molly Daydream. Pussy cat, numbers, eyelets and brads from my stash.
