Cut It Up - Grandparents Day

Happy Friday All!!!

I am so looking forward to this weekend to start,
how about you?

Well, we have another challenge starting over at Cut It Up

My Project:

What a fun day to honor our grandparents and parents!
I actually don't have any grandparents left, they have all passed on,
but my kids have my parents and my husband's mom to wish
a Happy Grandparent's Day to!

So this is the little gift box I decided to make my MIL to
thank her for being such an AMAZING Grandma to my littles!
My FIL passed away before my kids were born, but
I still wanted to honor him with this box, too.

I decided to use the family tree and stencil phrase
"Families are Forever"
from the "Just Because" Cards cartridge.
Our family knows that we will see my FIL again,
and we truly believe that families can be together forever,
so I thought this would be a perfect way to include my FIL in this day.

The box comes from Life's A Party and I cut it out at 2 3/4".
All the paper comes from Close To My Heart, as well as
the embellishments (Skylark collection), except for the
rhinestones, they came from Michael's.

This box will be filled with Dark Chocolate
(my MIL's favorite)

I hope that you will join us over at Cut It Up
and show us how you celebrate
Grandparent's Day!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!


  1. Hey, girl! I love your box. Making 3D items is so much fun. The tree and tag for your box are perfect.
