Colour Inkspiration 27 – Gable Gift Box with Celebrate You

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another Colour Inkspiration Blog Hop!  You’ve landed at Jacque Williams in New Zealand.   The Colour Inspiration Crew would like to start you off with inspiration by going through our blog hop!

Our colour combination for this fortnight is Pool Party, Island Indigo, Powder Pink and Melon Mambo:


I decided to venture away from cards this time and instead made a sweet little gift with the Silver Gable Boxes:

I have some special chocolates in the box.   I thought a few chocolates and water are a nice refreshment, especially when packaged up cutely!



I’ve altered these boxes a little bit. They come flat and without any window. I used one of the hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Collection to create the window here.

Next I embossed the body of the box with one of the folders from the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.   Metallic cardstock looks stunning when it’s been embossed – changes from “just shiny” to “wow that’s amazing”!

I used the gorgeous Celebrate You dies for the Amazing.  Isn’t this just a gorgeous font?

The Melon Mambo just sneaked in there with a little Enamel Shape.


The water bottles are easy to do. Simply take the original label off and wrap around with cardstock or printed paper.  I just added a few coordinating elements and done!

This would make a nice favor for a birthday party or a little thank you for guests at a bridal shower.

And thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay and the rest of the hop!  Next: Rebecca Scurr!
