White on white House warming Gift box

Evening everyone,
Huffff, finally managed to complete my entry for ItsyBitsy's Pristine Sparkle Challenge. It was quite a challenge. I have never really worked with only white before. I wasted the first 15 days in just planning on what to create but all in vain.
Finally my saviour was a friends house warming party. This house warming gift box goodie bag is made using only White and silver, the sentiments are also stamped using silver.Ok enough of blabbering, let me give you a look of it !!


The goodies include a gift box in the shape of a house, a card to match with the box and has the same transparent cut windows, an envelope to match the card and lastly a bag with the same cut, transparent window.


Making the box was quite a task for me as I am bad at making my own measurements. I have always made gift boxes with the help of ready measurements available on the net. The gift box is 6"-6" and 9" in length. I have used the thick white ivory sheet for the box. I wanted to give it a glass window look so I have cut out the windows on both sides and used OHP sheets to give it the glass look.


As plain white looks pretty dull and boring, I embossed few white sheets in 2 different designes. 2 sides of the box has cut windows and the other 2 opposite sides have embossed sheets to give it a textured wall look. I have also used embossed paper sheets for the sloping roof. I have used two-way tape to stick the sheets to give it a raised look.


Now comes my favourite part of making parchment curtains for the glass windows, I love the tissue curtains in my room so wanted to give the same look and hence the parchment :)


As its for a housewarming occasion I wanted to add few elements for good luck.I have added a paper-wreath , a floral horse shoe made from silver foam sheet and a glitter cross on the doors of the house.


Few more embellishments using Memory-box dies.


Few close-clicks of my window :) Dont forget to check out the pot tray below the windows. Idea from all the pretty houses in Switzerland with the  flower-pot baskets below the windows!!


My house from all the four-sides!!


Time for something that I am really proud of myself (Donkey that I am , I cant stay away from praising myself).I wanted the box to be re-usable and so I wanted to avoid using glue to stick the sides after packing the gift and make it useless after using it once and for that I have flicked the idea from my mom's bun clip.She uses a bun stick which she slides and fixes her bun to keep it intact and the same idea I have used to hold the sides of the box to close it.


Now comes the card, just like the box I have embossed the roof in the card too, the glass windows, cross on the door and the flower-pot trays below the windows and a matching envelope to go.


I dint not want to take pains of folding a bag myself so i used a cosmetic bag for the same and made a cut window to match the box and the card and embellished a corner with flourishes and flowers to match.This was the longest project and post till now :) Thanx for your patience.
