STRAWBERRY FIELDS - GDP#051

I recently came across some darling little Hand Sanitisers at a local store.  They had all sorts of themes on the outside, and one that caught my attention had strawberries all over it.  How perfectly it fit in with this weeks Food theme at Global Design Challenge!

I wanted to make up a little gift box to put it in, and I wanted that box to look like a strawberry too. One of the new Specialty Designer Papers available in the Holiday Catalogue, which goes live 1st September, is Fancy Frost DSP, a heavily embossed white card which is perfect for box making and colouring.  I used one of the sheets with a dotted pattern on it, as it reminded me of the pips on a strawberry.  I coloured the card with a sponge brayer and Real Red ink before folding up into a box to hold my hand sanitiser.

I also got to use another new product for the leaves on my box, the Paisley Framelit Dies.  One of the leaves was just perfect to layer up on the lid.  So pretty and intricate.

I used the Fresh Fruits stamp set to finish off my little gift set.  I love the versatility of this stamp set as is a two step set.  You can use the solid images alone, the outline images alone or use them together as I have here.  This type of set is wonderful for a variety of techniques!

This turned out to be such a sweet, fun little gift set.  I was so lucky that I could co-ordinate everything to the sanitiser theme AND the Global Design Project theme too!  I hope you can join us this week and share your own projects with us.  The team have some sweet looking items to share with you to, so go visit and take a look.
