A Red Rose Bouquet for YOU!!

Happy Day, everyone!!! And yipppeeee it's weekend again!!! I have been on a ride through the mountains this week and the colors are absolutely amazing...so soon they will all be in a pile on the ground---not my favorite time of the year!!! But it is postponing the winter...hahah

Today is my turn to post over at the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and I decided to make a 7" (17 cm) square gift box.

I started with a plain brown heavy box and covered it first with DP. The DP I have used is from the Maja Design Life in the Country Collection. For the top of the box I have used the lovely fretwork die designed by Jolanda Bergmans of Noor! Design. This die can be used in so many ways--I have used it to showcase a bouquet of roses. The rest of the embellishments for the box are all by Wild Orchid Crafts.  The 1" Open Roses resting on MS punched branches are anchored with a double flat bow made with Red Silk Ribbon. To soften all of the corners I have used 3/8" Flat Back Pearls.



On two opposite sides I used some lovely Lace Trimming topped with Flat Back Scalloped Pearls as well as more silk bows. The other two sides are just lace and the scalloped pearls.



On the bottom of the box I used Large Pearl Brads to make the little feet...

That's it for me today but I hope to see you again real soon. Thank you so much for your visits and for your lovely comments--they are all very special to me! Until the next time, I send big hugs!!

Yes, the leaves are gorgeous this fall, aren't they. Wish it would quit being so windy, since it's blown tons of them down already. The die that you used for a base for your roses is simply gorgeous. That's a new name to me, will have to check it out. Pretty, pretty box!
