Crafty Comeback Party - Day 13 - My Mind's Eye + Giveaway

Happy Wednesday!  As you may have noticed, Wednesdays are afternoon posts due to my schedule.  I hope I haven't kept anyone waiting to long!!

The middle of the week is brought to you by none other than My Mind's Eye!  I used to be a card designer for this company in the past, and I have always loved their paper collections!  They have branched out into party goods & stationary, but they do still produce paper crafting collections as well!

Today I am taking a break from stamping & background techniques, and focusing on paper products & diecutting!  I made a collection of gift boxes with a matching card using the Joyful paper collection.  This paper collection has a modern feel to it, and is black, white & gold foil.  I love the non-traditional color palette!  Check them out!

I used the Tiny Gift Box die (SSS | EH) from Lawn Fawn to create this adorable little box.  I thought about what I would use these for, and it came to me quickly!  Every year I try to learn a new recipe at Christmas time...and on my list this year is champagne truffles.  Wouldn't they package up PERFECTLY in these cute little boxes - not to mention the Joyful paper collection is ALSO a perfect fit for such a sophisticated piece of candy.  I will let you know in December how the learning process goes!


I ended up diecutting more bows than boxes, so I created this matching card.  I arranged the bows to look like a Christmas tree - I thought that was a cute touch!  


 I used the Gift Box die from Lawn Fawn (SSS | EH) to create the larger boxes, and then decorated them with different embellishments form the Joyful collection.  These boxes would be perfect for giving a gift card, jewelry, notecards, & more!!  It is definitely a good tool to have in your stash!  It can be used over & over again for so many different occasions!

These were definitely so much fun to create, and didn't take a lot of time!  Now I have multiple boxes that are ready to go once the hustle & bustle of the season is upon us.

Thank you My Mind's Eye for being part of my crafty comeback party!  I had SO much fun creating this gift boxes, and I will be using more of your Christmas collections as the season continues!!

  6. So gorgeous, your boxes and pretty ribbon tree card! The packaging: gifts in and of themselves! I'd be taking a very, very VERY long time to open gifts wrapped so beautifully, as a lot of oohing and ahhing, along with gazing and admiring, would take place beforehand! You've elevated this pretty collection into stunning!

  27. OMG. That MME collection is so sophisticated. I just love variations on B/W and when you add gold foil it's always good. Your tiny little gold stars box in the very first photo won my heart. And I love the "bow tree" design with those papers. Classy. On another note, DD and I made pralines for our neighbor gifts last year and they went over very well ;)
