Birthday Bikkies

Further to my last post about my dad's recent 80th birthday, I just wanted to show you the little box I put together to hold some shortbread I bought for him (I was going to bake but I remembered just in time that I am a lousy baker).

I used Midnight Muse and Lucky Limeade to kind of coordinate with the card.

The box pattern is the same one used in this post, with the obvious exception that this one is full of bikkies :-)  I have also misplaced my Large Oval punch, so had to make do with a smaller one - not quite as satisfactory, but there was no other choice.

I used the frame stamp from Everything Eleanor punched out with the large scallop circle, and then the circle of Lucky Limeade to cover up the journalling lines.  Finally, my new "go to" set for sentiments, Fabulous Phrases (and, of course the Stampamajig to line it all up), teamed with the Bitty Banners Framelits and the job was done!

Just a closeup showing that the decoration on the box is a combination of the large swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor and the more delicate swirl from Creative Elements.
