A Gift Box (blog cross-over)

wpid-2015-11-05-20.34.15-1.jpg.jpegOne of the thing I love about the techniques I shared in Fanciful Utility is that they can be used for so many projects. This time of year, FanU is great for fun, festive projects. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some of the ways FanU gets Festive.

This size box is nice for holding  many special gifts – hair comb, a necklace, an ornament, 9 tasty truffles, a small portrait and many more.

You can use Christmas fabrics for a festive holiday look, favorite prints to personalize the box, homespuns for a folk look, modern batikis for a flurry of color…. there are so many options.
