Oh, What Yum
Although I tried to do a Cricut design, my cut item had incorrect score marks. I tried to make sense of where to fold the item but it was complex and the instructions were unclear. Frustrated, I changed tactics and created this cute little box using a set of dies that were a gift. I used three paper patterns plus the white cardstock and also lined the inside of the box. I think this would be cute if it had some chocolate kisses in it and used as a gift for a coworker or neighbor. I added a Christmas bow in green to complete the project.
After looking it over I decided to make a tag for the box. I used several punches and a die using white and green cardstock and pretty red patterned paper. I stamped the tiny sentiment and added the red ribbon. I adhered the tag to the box lid but it does not interfere with removing or replacing the lid and the tag will not get lost.
