All About PRESENTation

Happy Hellos Everyone:

Aren't you glad it Friday? It hard to believe the final day of November 2012 has arrive, which could only mean the big ol' guy will arrive sooner rather than later with all sorts of wonderful presents in hand. That leads me right to today's project. It's not always about the gift, rather the presentation of the gift. I am really big on presentation whether it's my paper creations, or decorations, or that awesome dinner party. The way we present ourselves or an items will definitely open ones perception to the invitation of attending an event; having a good time at an event; trying that new dish; or receiving a gift without in intrepidation. Well, there are times when I love to present my cards as gifts [to those I know who will appreciate them and actually use them]. Initially, I would provide a few cards. Later, I would bound a few small sets with beautiful ribbons. More recently, I have been putting my cards in plastic see through boxes. With using the plastic boxes, I have the ability to present my gift with just the box and a bow or covering my box with paper. Over the next couple of months, I have decided to create my own boxes. Take a look...

I used some of my favorite designer papers of the season to adorn my box
and stamped a Waltzing Mouse sentiment for all to see.

Here BoBunny DP meets Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I just love this color
 combination. I only wished I had taken photos of the inside. There are two
 pockets on the inside--one for the envelopes and another one [a little wider]
for the cards.

A box for an all occasion collection.

...and of course I couldn't make a box without having a purple related theme.
The neat thing about these boxes is having the ability to dress them up or down.

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
