For my project I made a gift set for a very dear friend's birthday. I hope she doesn't visit my blog and see what her gift is.  I've had this made for over a month and it's been hard not to just give it to her ahead of time.  She will get it soon though!

Here is the gift set.  I used flowery designer paper for each item. The set includes:
Tissue Box
Matchbox filled with CHOCOLATE
Hand made paper gift bag
Small bottle filled with Bath salt

Here is the bottle of Bath Salts.  I wrapped the bottle with my designer and then made a pretty label  on the front using #3 Rose Scent Tilda from the Lost and Found Collection 2014.
She is not listed in the shop :-( but I'm sure Diana will do her best to get in back in.
Here is a side view of the bottle.  It's very girly and very frilly.

And here below a view of the lid.

I also made a Mini Tissue Box cover, using the same image but only to the front of the box. I paper pieced the robes on both of the images.

On the top of the tissue box cover I added lots of pearls, flowers and a butterfly.
You can find a tutorial for making this tissue box cover here.

Here is the Gift Bag I made.  I punched to top of it before putting the bag together to fancy it up a little.  The Match Box Treat Box and the Bottle of Bath Salts fit in here perfectly!
The sweet little Match Box open to show the inside (minus the chocolates) and the Belly Band
I made the Belly Band to fit around the the length of the box preventing from the little drawer from opening and spilling it's contents.

Here is my recipe:
