Hi there Core Fans!
It’s Joann and I am so excited to be here today to share a fun 3D table top decoration which I think is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season for all of my American friends. Being from Canada, we have already celebrated Thanksgiving but every year I remember something a friend on mine that lives in the United States told me… “We let our Turkeys get a bit larger here”. It makes me laugh every time.
As I was thinking about setting the table for Thanksgiving dinner it dawned on me that it would be nice to have some sort of treat at each table setting so the idea of a Fall themed gift box was perfect. The sunflower box was made using the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection and I just love the look of this paper. I decided not to emboss or sand this paper because I wanted a more elegant vintage feel to the box. The top is covered with an embossed layer of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection and several more layers to make up the pretty sunflower, all of the layers were however lightly sanded. The center was finished with a pretty vintage metal embellishment.
Here is a photo of the box open giving you a lovely place for a little something sweet!
