Little Woman

Hello.  Welcome.   Isn't it great when you get a little something in pretty packaging.  So I made some pretty packaging for a little something.

Isn't that little Russian Doll adorable!!  She makes a great tag.

All the papers I used are from Marianne Designs 6 x6 Shabby Chic block.  I took one sheet, added a line of double sided tape down one edge and rolled it into a cylinder.  These papers are quite heavy weight so you need to work them gently to get it rolled.  Then I squashed one end and glued it.  

I cut Marianne Designs Russian Doll die and paper pieced her using three papers.  I used a black pen to add her face.  I cut some paper using the pierced curved border die LR0343 and added it to either end of the gift box.  Rotate the tube 90° and flatten the top of the tube.  I added a piece of twine to the top of the box and to the Russian Doll and used a brad to close the top of the box.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
