Graduation Gift Box

I can't believe this school year has gone by so quickly! The curriculum we used this year has been so great, the children and I have really enjoyed all the things we've read and learned! We couldn't let Emma's graduation from kindergarten just pass by without a mention, so we are planning to have a small family gathering pretty soon to celebrate with her!

I've ordered a pretty personalized necklace for her and wanted to make a cute little box to package it in. (For these photos I used a bracelet that was given to Anna when she was born.) As I was cleaning out my closet yesterday (lllooooonnnngg story), I found a cute little box that I had saved thinking it would make a cute alterable - we all do that right? :) I carefully took the box apart and traced it onto a sheet of 12x12 paper, stamped it up and viola!

My pictures didn't come out great and I found that stamping on SU! Whisper White paper with Palette ink can be tricky - it likes to slide - but overall I'm happy! I used several fun Kitchen Sink Stamps, Playful Alphabet Buddy, Playful Numbers, Playful Ovals, Never a Loss 4 Words and Backgrounds and Borders.

The box was fairly simple to make - since it was traced. I cut a circle in the top using my CM cutting system and put a piece of acetate there for a window. I can't wait to give it to Emma - she'll love getting some pretty jewelry!
