Here is another of the projects I made for my display at the Crafters Gift Boutique.  I love how you can take a plain looking box and turn it into something with a wee bit of pizzazz.  The one thing I forgot to do was take a picture of the cards that are inside the box.  They are from Simply Sent Everyday Elegance Kit, which is now retired.  The colors are Baja Breeze and Whisper White which is why I used those colors for the flowers on the box lid.  Well, the light colored card stock is actually Very Vanilla because I liked the way it looked with the brown better than the white.

Using the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, I made the flowers from Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip card stock.  Next week I'll show you how to make the flowers.  It's an easy technique and makes such cute little flowers.

For the finishing touch, I added 1/2" Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon around the box.  Under the bow I added a Mini Glue Dot to keep it in place.  And that's all there was to it.
