My beautiful Mother...when she was younger. She's still just as beautiful!
Off to spend the afternoon with my Mom, my sister and my son & fiancĂ© & kiddos. It's a wonderful day! Hope all the Mothers out there enjoy your special day!

My Petal Boxes

Last year I was struggling with the kind of packaging I wanted to do in regard to my etsy orders. I love "handmade" and making some kind of box for my handmade jewelry to arrive in was a big deal to me. I wanted my customers to feel the whole "handmade" experience, so I was stoked to find some very pretty petal box templates from!
Here are a few samples of my own petal boxes made with scrapbooking paper. They're the perfect size for jewelry, and they're great for gift giving too! I top them off by wrapping with colored twine and a pretty tag.
Making your own petal boxes is so easy! can coordinate the designs for the holidays, weddings, birthdays or whatever you want. If you don't want to make your own, I'll be listing petal box sets in my etsy shop very soon.

"Happy May!"
