InspireINK Bog Hop - Secret Santa

Hello, and welcome!
It's InspireINK Blog Hop day, when this blog links up with others the challenge to bring you lots of inspiration!  This time the theme is  -

In other words, a bag or a box or some way of packaging a gift for a Secret Santa. Here's how mine came out. 

(The gift inside is a little manicure set.  We have a price limit of £1 for Secret Santa at our office so it came from the Pound shop - what a bargain!)

After measuring the case of the manicure set, I drew a plan and worked out the dimensions of the card I was going to need.  The case was 4 1/4" by 2 3/4" and about 1/2" deep so I wanted my finished box to be 4 1/2" by 3" by 3/4" deep. Here is the plan-
Did you notice the ribbon rose? I made that by tying knots in a length of double sided ribbon, then coiling it up and hot gluing it to a circle of card. 
(Yes, there will be a tutorial - check my YouTube channel in the next few days!)

So that's my contribution to the hop.  Next is Tina, so please click on the link below to see what she's been up to to inspire you! 

Keep crafting
