The gift boxes are hand-made by Lady Jane Creations, and are made using acid-free papers. These boxes are a perfect complement for the cards. The gift boxes are a unique and beautiful way to package the greeting cards for gift-giving and personal use. Most of the boxes have a clear front with a greeting card mounted inside. This unique packaging makes your gift stand out. The boxes can be reused as they are, or another personal photo can be placed in the clear front. They can also be used as a unique picture frame for your favorite photo.
Here are just a few comments from some of the people who have viewed Pastels by Florence:
"... I was impressed with your display of artwork on the lounge wall [at church]. It is so nice that you shared all that talent with us."
"Your gift to us of 'The Bird of Paradise' is one we will always treasure. Not only is it beautiful, it reminds us of our trip to Hawaii."
"When I walked into the room [the church exhibit] I saw a picture that looked exactly like your granddaughter; when I really looked I saw that it WAS your granddaughter. You'd painted your grandchildren!"
"I will be framing two of the cards."
"This [graduation portrait] is nicer than my senior photo."
