Gift Idea with Sweet Pea stamps and Paper Temptress

 Here's a great project that you can do to make a stunning and sweet gift for someone for a low cost.  This great box is available at my local dollar store it's approx. 5.5x8.5" and very sturdy. It's a thick cardboard box meant for storage or gift giving and has Christmas sentiment on it, but I wanted to turn it into something special in an everyday kind of way.  While at the dollar store, I found some bath treats in Iris scent and then took some gorgeous Paper Temptress papers and this stunning image from Sweet Pea stamps called Iris Grace.
 
I used several stunning papers from Paper Temptress including 2 shades of Mica called Kunzite and Amethyst. The image was printed out on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper and colored with Copic markers. The paper that the image is mounted on is also a shimmery stock called Solar Yellow Pearlescent.  The base papers is a wonderful sheet of Hambly Studio Screenprints called Chic Circles.
 
Here's a close up of the image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Ching chou kuik.
 
Here's the finished project complete with a wonderful bath scrubber, a bottle of Iris scented body wash and some warm hand made slippers.

 
Hope this cute idea inspires you to make a wonderful little gift for that neighbor, teacher, church friend, visitor or person that you just want to give something with a little personal touch.
 
Cheers, Holley
