Thank You From The Bottom of my Heart

Okay, did you know...that Kewpies have to have wings or they are NOT Kewpies?  I learned that on Antiques Road Show. Kewpies were first seen in drawings by Rose O'Neil for Ladies' Home Journal in 1909 - the same year my house was built!  I need a Kewpie doll to put on the shelf...

For now, this Kewpie will have to do.  I've combined a couple of Kewpie sets from Nicecrane Designs to create my project.  LOVE the sentiment:

I would thank you from the bottom of my heart
But for you my heart has no bottom

Such a sweet way to say thank you!

I put together an easy gift box for my Kewpie to adorn.  I always do a drawing of the box I want,starting with the size of the front of the box - adding on the sides, back, tab and bottom.  Would you like to see my highly accurate, to scale drawing (hah) of this box?

Then I just follow my drawing - cut it out, score it and fold it up!  Decorate!  

Here's a look at the Kewpie sets:
