wedding gift

Top of box with Peacock as focal point

This wedding present is for one of the teachers at work who is getting married on Saturday.  Being married on 9/11 will probably mean they will never forget their anniversary.

This is the back of the box.  Who ever decorates the back of anything?  Well, I guess I do.  The sentiment was supposed to be for the top of the box, but I wanted to leave the peacock as the focal point so I had to put this sentiment somewhere.  Then once I was looking at the photos, I realized that the ribbon was not finished off very prettily so I added the brass flower.

Card 1
This wedding gift is a small recipe box and inserts for photos.  You can see how much I am enjoying the new Magnifique paper pack.  The idea for this gift came from
Sherri Tozzi, my up-up-line.  Check out her blog, I have put a link to her box so you can see what it is supposed to look like.  Sherri used the Passages paper pack.  Sherri is an artist and she so willingly shares her creative gift.  She puts so much into each project she creates.  Little things that you may not even see, but they make for a beautiful project. There are ten "cards" that go inside the box.

Gift bag.
I was afraid I was going to have to run to Wal-Mart at 6:30 in the morning on my way to work to pick up a gift bag, but then I found this bag in the bottom of my stash.  Most of what I have are Christmas bags.  This one belonged to my daughter, I realized as I found a HUGE silver Superman Emblem.  She is crazy for superman.

Really I have to run to Wal-Mart anyway.  The shower is first thing in the morning and I am bringing the juice.  It is after 1.  I guess I better hit the hay.

Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Your photo box and inserts are gorgeous, Leslie. What a spectacular gift. I get a few cards made. You come up with major projects. I'm amazed - and a little jealous. LOL.

    Take care, friend.

  2. This is gorgeous! What an awesome gift. Each card is better than the last.
