Blogger's Challenge #140: Boxes and Bags

Lisa gave us the challenge of creating any type of box or bag.  I was stuck for a little while today (hence the late post) but then had a "duh" moment...."Lisa Bohler, you have a Big Shot die that will complete this challenge for you!" So I grabbed my Big Shot, some cardstock and DSP and Stampin' Up's exclusive Bitty Box & Envelope Bigz XL die and got right to work.  In hardly anytime at all, my challenge was complete!


The most challenging part for me in using this die is that the card you need to make is only a 2 by 2 card!  There isn't a lot of room in a 2 inch square!  But thanks to the Saleabration set Vintage Labels, I had the perfect little words to fit that size of card.

The die makes both the envelope and the box and I just needed to cut a card to fit (and stamp and add some adhesive, of course!)  I also just got the satin Old Olive ribbon so I had to put that to use with the Cottage Wall DSP.

Thanks for looking!

I've already checked out the boxes and bags that most of the other players created and you DON'T want to miss them!  So go...check them out!!!

I haven't purchased this die yet, but seeing this project enables me. I love that this box is so pretty and with the ribbon and the card, it would make a great presentation for a small gift. Thanks for the shove in the right direction....
