I am thrilled to be sharing a project with you today as GDT for the Crafting By Designs Challenge. The theme is a nice easy one, Anything Goes, so I’ve created a pretty gift set for the occasion. I’m sure you will love it as I do,

This is what I came up with:

Thankyou so much to the Crafting By Designs team for having me as a GDT for the challenge, I enjoyed creating my project very much, The gift box was made using this tutorial from Tara’s blog if you would like to make one of your own. It’s quite easy to make but very effective
