Embellished Mini Box of Elizabeth Shaw Mints

Elizabeth Shaw Mints a
I was in Home Bargains yesterday and saw that they had mini boxes of Elizabeth Shaw mints, I think they cost about 49p and contain seven mints. I bought a couple as they are ideal for what my Mother In Law used to called a “fairing gift”,  something I could give as a small thank you gift especially with Easter coming up.

To make a template I drew round the base of the box and then added a little extra.

Using the template I cut a top and bottom from what I think is DCWV card. I then embellished the top with a flower made using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  The flower centre is part of a necklace from Primark that I had taken apart for the bits.
