Hello there! Back at it again!

Thanks for understanding my little break from the blogging world!  Thank to all that continued to check out my blog and leave comments. I have been vacationing with family, growing in my faith at convention with my youth group, and doing ALOT of stamping and creating!  School starts in our area today, so I hope to find more time to do new and exciting things for my blog! 
I created this for a friend that I was giving the plate set as a good bye gift. I made this box to hold ALL 12 seasonal plates that I showed you in previous posts.  It is styled like a pizza box only deeper.  I used the Scallop Square Die Cut on So Saffron cardstock.  I love the Season of Friendship stamp set!  The sentiment is popped off the box top using dimensions.  The Pumpkin Pie grosgrain bow adds a nice finishing top to the front of it.
Here is all 12 plates inside the box ready and waiting to be used each month. The closure is a large size brad and elastic silver cord.  I poked two hole just under the bow and attached the cording with knots on the inside. The box measures 5.5 x 5.5 and 1.5 high.  The lid is attached separately to the box.
I also made a matching card and envelope.  Colors are So Saffron, Pumkpin Pie and Ballet Blue.  I used the flower from Season of Friendship with the stamp off technique to have variations in the tones.  Then the sentiment is from A Good Friend.  The scallop Ballet Blue is actually a piece of the Scallop Square Die Cut cut in half.  The Pumpkin Pie ribbon is stapled to the card.  Added the trio flower and brad and done!
Have a magical day!
