Lovely Gift Box

What An inspiration  Matthew Mead  has been to me this year.


The Holiday magazine this Christmas, has my creative juices flowing.


There was an idea of using a tin, to put cookies, and pretzels in. They then used chalkboard paint to create a cute message




I figured it would also make a great Valentine's gift box.






I made a red, and white scarf for my brother.



Perfect Valentine's day colors right. These are actually the colors of one soccer team he really likes.



CHICAGO FIRE. I believe he has season tickets, so I hope he gets good use out of it.






This is the very first knitted project, I have done. I am very excited with the way it turned out.





Here is all you need to do the box.






You paint the lid with your chalkboard paint.



I had to do 3 coats.




Next you put a nice message, and you are done. 



This was so easy, and it is reusable.



I am also so excited that summer with Matthew Mead is coming soon.













Parties I am linked to.
