Goth inspired gift boxes

I had intended to publish this post Friday/Saturday but unfortunately my PC crashed and I was unable to access my hard drive for the photos. I cannot even start it up anymore, it immediately crashes (just love that blue screen).
Had to purchase a new PC, admittedly it was time anyways.
Finally got the new PC yesterday (am not sure I am a fan of windows 8).
Please bear with me over the next week as my posts my not all be ready as I had originally scheduled/intended.
I managed to get my latest photos loaded from my camera, Photoshop is installed, MS office is installed ... etc. but there are still things I need to put on this new PC over the next week or so.

Now to my post, I made a couple more Goth inspired gift boxes to match my berry basket from my last post. The roses are all the same design as well.
The hamburger box uses the Blossom punch (instructions found here) and the curvy keepsake box uses the same instructions but with the pansy punch.

  1. I feel your pain with a crashed PC. Mine did that about a month ago and I'm still trying to get use to Windows 8. Your box's are stunning! They would make great favors at a black tie event. Great job.

  2. I love your designs Alexandra! The keepsake boxes are amazing! Did you glue the doily to black cardstock before you ran it through the Bigshot?
    Thanks, Barbara

  3. Thanks Barbara. I cut the black card and doily seperatly. I used a larger 8" doily, which I folded in half, cutting both pieces at the same time.

  4. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh¡¡¡ son preciosassssssssss¡¡¡

  5. Both are pretty with the added doily!! Windows 8 is a bit of a pain!! I use the classic desktop view myself!! :)

  6. Thanks Alexandra for answering my question!
    Seriously are the Punch-Art Princess!!!!
