Eiffel Tower Gift Box

Of course I fell in love with the Amour stamp set and its lovely Eiffel Tower!  After browsing Pinterest, I came up with the idea of a pie/cake box Eiffel Tower gift box.  What do you think?
 It was easy to cut this box and lid with the CTMH/Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The base is Colonial White card stock, and the lid is cut from Desert Sand.
 To tie the box closed, I used a piece of retired Colonial White ribbon from my stash.
 Here's the lid with out the tie.  To create the grass, I masked off the area of the Eiffel Tower base, then sponged on Pear ink.  I used the arched swirls from the Amour stamp set to stamp the pretty swirls in the "grass."  (It really adds an elegant touch.)  I used another flourish to mimic clouds.  Below, you'll see how I jazzed up the box base: I stamped the text stamp with Lagoon ink, then trimmed down the Lagoon heart washi tape to a thinner thickness to use on the bottom.
 Here's a final peek at the completed box.  I'll need to add some bonbons before I give this as a gift!


  1. Aren't you the clever gal! I share your love of most things French, so think this is tres bien...even if it is empty!

  2. That is really cute. Lends itself perfectly to the Eiffel Tower stamp! I like the flourishes in the grass, too.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
