Yellow Makes Me Happy Gift Set

I made this set for a friend who's favorite color is yellow.  

I made a personalized box using my Gypsy to design everything.  I measured the top of the box, then I made a rectangle on my Gypsy that was the size of the box top so that I could design all the elements there and see exactly how they would fit without doing any test cuts and wasting paper.  

Here's what the top of the box looks like
First I painted the outside of the box white. Then I added all my cuts with some Scotch Quick Dry and Mod Podged over everything.  The paper is Stampin' Up.

The font is from Ashylyn's Alphabet.  

The flourishes and swirls are all from Straight From the Nest.  The one on the bottom is 2 that I welded together.

The butterflies are from Serenade.

Inside the box I painted yellow, and then added more Stampin' Up paper.

Inside is a little crocheted purse that I made for her & her card.  I really wanted them to match nicely.  For the card I added some Stickles to the flowers, but it didn't show up in the main photo, and I didn't want to take a whole bunch of photos so sadly you won't be able to see that detail.

Thanks for stopping by today!
