Two Gift Boxes and a Layout
By Marie-Josée Hamel

Hello, Green Tara fans!
Today I am featuring two tiny gift boxes as well as a layout.
 Here they are! 

Gift box #1
This is a gift box I created with my new Silhouette Portrait, which I love!
 I used some Green Tara goodies to embellish it.

Here's a close-up view of the skeleton leaves and the jute ribbon
 I put behind the big Heirloom flower.

I also added two tiny ivory roses.

Giftbox #2
To create this giftbox, I repurposed a small tin which 
used to be a spice container.

I covered it with paper and then added lots of Diamante Trim to it.
 I love this trim; it adds a beautiful and rich touch to any project.
 Here's a close-up view of the trim:

Then, I decorated the top with skeleton leaves, oak leaves and various 
flowers, & among them the beautiful Primula flower in black-grey.

All white layout
I created this layout back in 2012, but never got around to show it 
here before! :) 
I used Green Tara lace on it as well as a few blooms.

Here are two close-up views of the lace I used as a layer.

Do you see the white flower on the right? It is a piece of Green Tara lace.
 I like this kind of lace, because you can cut each flower and use them
 separately on your layouts.

And here's a close-up view of the blooms.
