Sugar Sugar

>> Monday, 6 April 2009

I made this little gift box for this months Sugar Sugar challenge. I was searching for a while to find a box template that made a box big enough for me to add a stamped image and some embellishments. I found this one on Katie Renz's blog and it was so simple to make. I used Bazzil cardstock for the box, the DP is by The Paper Company and I cut it so the pattern continues around the box.

The gorgeous SN stamp is coloured with Tombow markers. I still need lots of practice to get used to these as the colours are stronger than distress inks and they bleed more too. I added some Quickutz leaves, Prima flowers and paper roses to the top and threaded some beads onto the stem of one of the roses. On the back I just added a punched flower to hide where the two ribbon ends join.
