It's all in the Packaging

I love designing and making packaging. My prize box has a bunch of little packages of pairs of individual stamps or stamps and colored spots with cute little toppers. For someone so large (5' 10.5") it seems strange to me that I would love to do miniatures. Lately I have been working on larger items like this raffle box.
The body is a Forget-Me-Not Keeper and the top is made from a sheet of Tempting Turquoise 12x12 textured paper. I added a pretties flower I died with reinkers and water between 2 sheets of waxed paper, some wide Chocolate Chip ribbon, a scrap of wide Certainly Celery ribbon for the leaves, stamped the word raffle with my Headline Alphabet stamps stuck 'em on with sticky strip and TA DA...a beautiful Raffle box.

WOW I didn't guess you were so tall.
I am your polar opposite!
I am 4' 11" and 3/4
Can't leave out that 3/4 you know!
Maybe its just a balance !
