Kraftyhands July 2015 Challenge

Hello all, I hope you are enjoying some nice weather wherever you are in the world. We've had a real mixed bag of weather these past few days in our beautiful little corner of Wales, but then, that's a typical British Summer for you.
Today is the start of the July challenge at Kraftyhands. Thank you to those of you who joined in with the June challenge, the winners have been announced on the blog. This challenge is just for fun and the theme this month is:
"Wrap It Up"
We would like to see your gift wrapping ideas. Anything from boxes to bags, traditional to novel. You don't have to use Kraftyhands products but it would be nice if you did.
I'm giving you a sneak peek of an upcoming release from Kraftyhands today. 

I have used the Romantique CD Collection to create these two pillow boxes. The CD is available to pre-order prior to it's launch next month. The collection contains some of the prettiest papers, wonderful vintage photographs and fabulous artwork all centred around engagements, weddings and anniversaries.

I printed off one of the patterned papers, in pink and in blue, onto card to make the boxes. I printed a second, coordinating, paper and cut a strip to go around the middle of the boxes.

I then chose an engagement sentiment and a couple of tickets for each box. I finished the boxes with a small bow and some fluffy feathers.
Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and to view the inspirational gift wrapping creations from my talented team mates. Remember to be a follower of the challenge blog to qualify for entry and don't forget to watch the Kraftyhands shows on The British Craft Network where you will be able to see this CD d├ębut next month.
I've entered this project in the following challenges:
