And here's what I made with my MYSTERY BOX. In fact there were two of those lovely, kraft boxes. And it was perfect since I wanted to make small gifts for my son's (and mine!) gym teachers (we do a parent/kid gym together). I couldn't resist the call of a simple white embossing on kraft and a splash of colorful embellishments. So first, I created a text block using words and letters from various mSB stamp sets. Most of the words are in English so as the bottom line I created the word MERCI (Thanks in French) using Many Dots set.

When this was ready I could go and stamp repeatedly the block twice on long sides of my boxes and once on the short side. I also stamped and embossed on the top flap.

Here's one finished box with its big bow, a handmade flower, a button and some twine to finish things off.

And what's better to offer to say thanks than homemade goodies? Here's a pic of what's inside my boxes!


And since my text block was still sitting on the acrylic mount, I did two matching cards. I removed the bottom line text though to make thing a bit lighter since the cards are smaller than boxes.

Now it's time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created with their MYSTERY BOX. Your next designer is Rebecca Keppel. Don't forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our MYSTERY BOX giveaways!
