Die Cut Dreams Challenge #97 Gift Box or bag.


Happy Monday to everyone in blogland. Thank you so much to everyone who played with our colour challenge last fornight, check out the Die Cut Dreams blog to see who won and who we picked as our top three.

As the heading may suggest our next challenge is to create a Gift box or bag. Our fantastic sponsor for this challenge is Crafts 4 You

owned by Lynne a past DT Member.

So here is my creation....................


.............and here is the box from another angle......


I have used one of the box templates from Debbi Moores' CD Shabby Chic Vintage Flowers and added a few of her gorgeous butterflies and some pearls. The ribbon was cut from one of my tops - you know those loops of ribbon that are used to keep the thing on a hangar!
