New Mini Silver Gable Box from Stampin' Up! decorated with Petal Palette stamp set, colored with Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters by Patty Bennett. Perfect for party favors, shower favor, wedding favor, or birthdays!


Today I am sharing a SNEAK PEEK of the adorable new Mini Silver Gable boxes, decorated and ready for spring! These would make such sweet table favors at a shower or wedding, or a great little birthday gift for some jewelry or a gift card!

I added die cuts behind the die cut flowers using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Petals & More thinlit dies.  I tied up the handles on the gable box with free Sale a Bration ribbon in Calypso Coral.  The box is wrapped in a 1-7/8" x 12" piece of decorative paper from the Sweet Soiree designer paper pack.
