Some Gift boxes

Hello! Hope you are all well and able to stamp. Did any of you watch the finale of "LOST" and what did you think of how it ended??? When I first watched it I thought they all had died in the crash and as it went on and on I thought they were in a parallel universe. LOL
I have a couple of challenge projects to show you. They are both a treat box that Karen had on her Anything but a card challenge, at Stamp TV.
The first one here is for the challenge at TMITA to use this image by Nina "Simple Pleasures" Patti Nelson brings us this weeks challenge. She wants us to use the "Simple Pleasures" image by Paper Cupcakes and do anything but a card with a birthday theme

This is the project using Karen's instructions to make this very cute and so easy treat box. I liked it so much, that is why I did the project above the same way. The box is one sheet of card stock scored and folded and no cutting!! I love this technique and will be doing more of them.

For the top box I used prisma pencils, nestabilities and card stock by Gina K. Designs.
For the last box I used Gina K. set "Owl Always Love You" Prisma pencils,card stock is GKD , nestabilities and the sentiment is from Gina's "Spring Mix" stamp set.

Hope you have a great week and thank you for stopping by.

Been so long since I had time to go blog hopping - glad I made it to your blog today - loads of lovely inspiration - I especially love those GinaK owls and the way you have coloured them.
