Flower Shop Pansy Punch Vanilla Box

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Flower Shop Pansy Punch Vanilla Box

Ah, the simplicity of a cream coloured box with simple punched flowers makes me very happy. Don’t get me wrong, I adore DSP and beautiful patterns and designs, but I also love simple. My house is simply decorated with small decorative pieces, and that’s something that I seem to replicate in all areas of my home/garden and apparently work life. I just wish that my 3 younger sons had the same gene…. Jack, my eldest son, is also a minimalist like me. The other 3 clearly take after their Dad who’s a stuff-everywhere-and-anywhere kinda guy.

But I’m digressing here….! I wanted to share a simple box with you and offer up a couple of decorative alternatives using the same elements.

And heck, who doesn’t love the Flower Shop and matching Pansy Punch combination. It was one of the first pairs I ever bought, it was new into the catalogue that was launched shortly after I joined, and having retired 7 of 8 stamp sets that were the few that I owned, I was stocking up, and this one all but leaped into my basket and I’ve never regretted the purchase!

So I’ve shared 2 looks – simple punching of cardstock and then stamping and punching. I think I like the Linen Thread wrap better, but I like both of the floral looks.

Have a super Wednesday!
