I needed a small gift box, so I started rummaging through my binders for some ideas. If I see something that I like, I usually print it out and put it in the appropriate binder - so hopefully I can find it later on. I came across this cute little box and decided to give it a try. I saw it on Crafting with Katie in 2011. Better late than never!
Katie wrote out great instructions. I don't have Art Philosophy, so I used my oval punches for the tag. I really like the look of adhering the ribbon to the lid and base separately so that the box can be opened without messing up the ribbon. It came together very well and I love the flower on the top. This could be made in any color combination but the person I'm giving the gift to loves sun flowers, so I used a light yellow I had in my stash along with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. I am definitely going to have to use those carts more often.
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! It has been so hot here and next week looks like more of the same. The girls and I all got nooks so we are going to a class at Barnes & Noble this week. Did you know that you can download books from your local library with your card number for 2 weeks - for free! We are going to find out more of the details!
Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
