BC #140: Boxes or Bags

This week we were challenged with boxes or bags.  I've had this little box made for about a week but since I hadn't done any stamping on it, wasn't sure what to do.  I used a new template from Sarah Martina for Clear & Simple Stamps called the XOXO Box.  I did delete the little handle on the top & chose to wrap some ribbon around instead.

Last night I also saw a challenge come through from Lisa Johnson.  I met Lisa at CHA and did her make'n'take, she's such a sweet person.  I already had a little yellow in the box and wanted to add a cute little tag, so added a flower & some crystals to it.


I'm hoping to get some major stamping done this weekend.  I haven't stamped in about a week (other than this quick tag) and am having withdrawals!!!


Enjoy the other blogger's challenges today by checking them out here.

Come back on Monday and visit as I will have the newest Stamp of the Month from Clear & Simple Stamps and if you are up for another challenge, visit us at Stampotique Designer's Challenge.

Stamp Set:  Limited Edition Thanks 2009 set & In Bloom from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Origins from Basic Grey, Old Olive, White cardstock, Lemon Tart

Accessories:  Amuse creative candy, tag punches, lemon tart ribbon
