Here's the Thread Box: finish size is 4-1/4" x 3-3/4". SU Kraft paper is used. Some red yarn from my stash and some random buttons adhered using a glue gun. Rub some Brown along the edges for a woodsy feel.
The top/bottom of the spool of thread: DSP used is left over scraps from an old SU Sale-a-bration 6x6 pack. It was put through a Swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder for additional texture. This is where I tweaked the cut file: I removed the center circle and punched a larger circle - 1-1/2" in diameter using SU Kraft paper. Then punched a 1-1/4" Red Circle for the stamped image (used Prima Thread cling stamps) with SU Chocolate Chip ink.
The top of the thread b ox lifts up to reveal a inside inner box:
See the inside of the box - clean and ready to fill with treats!
Now here is the sewing basket. It is 5"x5" oval in shape. The top is embossed with Cuttlebug Measure by Measure embossing edge folder anchored with antique brads.........cool, eh? The red oval is embossed with Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder. DSP used for the lid is Graphic 45 Bed of Roses paper and the sewing box bottom is using Graphic 45 Bits and Pieces paper. A few buttons are added embellishments to the lid.
Here's a side view of the sewing basket. The Ric rack is a PTI (PaperTrey Inc. die which can be found here) cut in the same SU Red paper and sponged with brown edges.
Remove the lid:

We did celebrate Mother's Day one day early because it was also my Mother's birthday. My mother enjoyed this gift - she has been retired for a while and had a very long career as a seamstress. She is also very creative so I know I had been influenced by her all these years. I hope you enjoyed this as well.
Have yourself a great crafty day!
