Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic

For my project I created a cute little gift box, perfect for adding candy, or a small gift for a friend!
After cutting out the template and scoring all the folds with my Scor-Buddy, I lined the inside of the box with green paper.

Next covering the outside of the box with a lighter green paper, and adding strips of the Scor-Pal Tape: for the ribbon that I was going to embellish the box with.

For the window, I first stamped 'friend' with Stazon ink, lined both the front and the back edges of the window with Scor-Pal Tape and then filled it with beads and tiny flowers:

And when it's all put together, I used my Bow Easy tool to create a fab bow for the top of the box!

Now if you would like to win some goodies to make you own box, including some fab Scor-Pal Tape, then let me know by leaving a comment and "waving hi from where ever you are from" and if you want to have 2 entries then please become a follower to my blog and let me know you joined :)

I just read your comment on the home blog hop. When my e-mail quit working, I figured out (on Blogger) how to not get comments sent to my e-mail. I appreciate your lovely comments. So nice of you to read and reply to each dress. Guess you saw how I am now using the original dress cabinet. I thought it was quite appropriate, too. Thanks so much for asking and pointing out your visits to me.
