Pinkalicious for this week's HSS Challenge 62

Hi there peeps!  How's your week going?  Well, I wish I could just take a sec to catch my breath - lots of things going on in the work and personal fronts...but that's for sharing at another time..all good though.   :)

Since time is of the essence, I will be short and sweet today sharing this week's post for Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 62.  The theme is Pink-a-licious:
I made a little gift set that's a quick and easy little something for a hostess or friend.  Hope you like it!  Here's a look at the box and one with the tags inside.
Isn't that flower on the top of the box so FUN?  I learned how to create it from one of the projects over at UStamp With Dawn and Friends' Big Shot Brilliance.  Super cute, don't you think?  As for the box, it's super easy to make.  Start with a 7 1/2" x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock and score the 10 1/2" side at 2 1/2", 5", 7" 1/2, and 10.  The 1/2" flap left over is where you'll glue the seam of the box.  On the 7 1/2" side, score at 2 1/2" - this will form the bottom of your box.  For the lid, start with a 4 9/16" square and score each side at 1".  Fold at the score lines and cut at the 2 top and bottom verticle lines up to the 1" score lines.  Assemble box and use the Multipurpose glue to adhere.
Here's the inside of the box - the tags fit perfectly!

Hope you liked my quick and simple project!  Now it's time for you to play along and create ANY project that uses PINK!  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and check out all the fun projects from our talented DT team :)

Have a great day!!  By for now!

Did you really stitch the tags or is it faux? They would make any gift extra special. I'll have to make the fab flower.
