Crafty Gals Corner Challenge # 5 ~ Pinkalicious :-)

Hi everyone.  I hope you are all having a great week.

We have another challenge for you today at Crafty Gals Corner and our theme this week is Pinkalicious! Yes, that's it - all you have to do is make a project using different shades of pink.  Once completed, you link it up to our challenge #5 to play along and to stand a change to win some wonderful prizes from our wonderful sponsors.  We have two this week, and they are:

Prize ~ Key & Roses Digital Paper Pack


Prize ~ 2 digital images used by the DT

I decided to make this cute matchbox gift card holder for my project today. I used Gracielle Design's Key and Roses Digital Paper. Can you see how beautifully it prints?
To go with the beautiful paper, I chose this very sweet image by Elizabeth Bell called "On Cupid's Cloud" and coloured it in using copic markers.

When you open this little box, a gift card holder pops up.

And when you turn it around, you can read the message that you stamped and/or wrote :-)
But wait, there's more !!!

When you remove the little stand that holds the gift card holder, there is place for a surprise! In this case 4 Lindor Truffles :-)  You could put a little trinket in there, or some jewelry or anything else your recipient might like :-)  I just love this little box! I was inspired by Enfys from Going Buggy.  If you want the directions to make one of these, you will find her tutorial video here.

I hope you enjoyed my little box as much as I enjoyed making it. It's not at all difficult to make and Enfys gives you very concise and easy instructions to follow with all the measurements :-)

Now, remember that you have till noon, Tuesday, 11 February 2015, to make you project and link it to our challenge #5 at Crafty Gals Corner.  My favourite colour is pink, so I'm looking forward to see what you all create!

Thank you for stopping by today and for all your wonderful comments.
I love reading each and every one of them.

Till next time,
Happy Crafting


  1. This is adorable! Love everything about it, especially one surprise after another. Off to find the tutorial. Thanks for the link.

  2. This is such a cool creation! I love that you made a box instead of a card and I bet whoever gets it will love the box, too! :D

  3. This is fabtabulous! Someone is going to be very happy when they receive this. Hugs.
