CUTE boxes

OK...let me start by saying that photography skills are QUITE lacking on this picture! But, if you will go to the website that I am going to give you the link to you will see MUCH better pictures!

I got the instructions for these two CUTE boxes from the blog of my good friend and fellow demonstrator, Diane Noble. Diane is SO creative! I was strolling around her blog the other day and saw these cute little treat boxes along with the directions for them. I knew I just HAD to make a few of my own. In Diane's samples she used Christmas papers and embellishments but I wanted something different so I used Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP on the smaller one. I used the same DSP but used Rich Razzleberry as the "base" on the larger one. The flower on the larger one is made from Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry. The little leaves behind the flower were made with Old Olive and the Sweetest Stem Embosslit. I used the new Vintage Labels stamp set for the little tag on the smaller box. That set will be in the new Sale-A-Bration catalog that starts in January. So? Do you know what that means? YES....you can earn that stamp set FREE starting in January! I stamped it with Melon Mambo ink. I also used the Melon Mambo dotted ribbon on the smaller box and the Rich Razzleberry dotted ribbon on the bigger box.

Now....Diane's blog: the tutorial for the smaller box is at http://dianesdesigns-tutorials.blogspot.com/2009/11/mini-treat-boxes.html and the tutorial for the bigger box is at http://dianesdesigns-tutorials.blogspot.com/2009/11/mini-treat-boxes.html - but...don't stop there! You really should have a look around her whole blog! Like I said, she is a very talented and creative lady! Her blog is at http://www.dianesdesigns.blogspot.com/

  2. Adorable in these color combos and love the double handle effect. Wowsers on the flower ensemble on the larger box. Both are as cute as they can be!
