Go for the Gold: Two Easy but elegant gift boxes

We have house guests this week and no time to sneak in the stamp room to whip up a project for you today BUT thanks to Stampin’ Up, here are 2 nice gift box ideas!   I found these in my shopping cart area of my demo website, complete with recipes:)

Non-stamping related side note: We spent the day with our friends at the Biltmore Estate, which was all decked out for the holidays.  A little rainy but we were inside mostly so it was fine.  Any trip to the Biltmore is alright with me!  They don’t allow visitors to take photos but on their website they posted a quick video of the inside during this time of the year if you’d like to see a bit:

And at night, wow! Check out the 55′ tree with thousands of lights:

Biltmore 2015

Tomorrow we go visit some waterfalls, which are plentiful around this area!

Back to stamping….

Anytime you heat emboss an image, it looks like you really went the extra mile, doesn’t it?  This takeout box we sell gets bumped up several notches with the wide satin ribbon, embossed gold paper and the gold embossing powder.  Who cares what’s in it?  The box is really the present!
