Presentation is everything

 Many, many years ago I had a friend who taught me "Presentation is everything", it was her theory that you could give someone a rock and they would be thrilled if it was presented properly, lol.  I try to keep the idea alive but sometimes get in a hurry and lapse into just the essentials.  I have been making some boxes lately to have on hand when I get in a rush.  They can hold card sets or a hankie, so many things.  I have used my score it board and 110lb coated copy paper by Mohawk.  I embellished with ribbon, a hammered heart done with red florist wire.  A 2" circle airbrushed with Copic "Currant" and 2 nestibilities hearts, one I tied all up with tiny ribbon using my micron pen,  scanned it into my scanner and then print them out, then recut with another nestibilies die.  I mounted it to the circle and curled it with a skewer and then applied a coat of gloss medium.  The font is Sizzix "Wingo Dingo".  A perfect little box to present to a dear friend.
