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!
