Welcome to the It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. Do you like to receive gifts? How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; Gift bags, boxes, baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.
You should have arrived here from, Maria from Stamp Cut Create http://stampcutcreate.blogspot.com/.
If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B.
I have seen these darling little boxes all over the blogs and thought for my project I would make one. They take just a little time to make (especially your 1st one), but they are for sure worth it. They are very easy to make and really get a WOW from the receiver. Well I just couldn't stop with the gift box (treat box). So also made a matching card. Isn't this just so cute.
I used Birthday Bash for the cuts on this gift box. Elephant 1.7" , Bee 3.3", Mouse 2.5", Bird w/ banner 2.25", Turtle 1.75", Balloons 2.3"
The cuts for the card also cut from Birthday Bash: Bird with banner 3.4"
The paper is mainly SEI
Line: A Fair day - dark pink'A fair day - waiting in line for the stripes
A fair day - sugar puffs
The brown/pink base is also from SEI
The light green is Chistmas Mint/winter mint collection.
The purple is from Recollections.
Stickles: Cotton Candy (pink), Lavender, Silver, Diamond
I had a few eyelets and used them for the holes at the top
I also used my Sakura Gelly Roll pens - White, Black, Clear Star and Red.
The sentiment stamp, " Sweet Birthday wishes is from Pink by design and is from the set called, "Take the Cake".
The turtle face is from Peachy Keen Stamps PK-753 Critter Faces small.
******** Since you made it through this post so far I figured I should throw in some fun blog candy on this hop. One lucky winner will receive a brand new Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge. (Can I just say this cartridge is AWESOME!!!).
I will use Random.org to pick a winner from all the comments received. I will draw a winner on July 19 2011. Please leave a way to contact you.
Thanks for stopping by on this fun hop. Your next stop is Lori Apgar from http://www.scrappinmystressaway.blogspot.com/
