BBTB2/TBB&M/Crayola Box

Monday has rolled around like Monday tends to do. It's always fun when Monday is the time for the design team at Bitten By The Bug2 to present the challenge cards for the week. Our challenge this week was selected by the very talented Regina. She selected Tags Bags Boxes & More for the cartridge and we are to design with the crayola box. I am sure you all know that Regina started Bitten By The Bug.

I shopped last week at Hobby Lobby and I was delighted to find a paper pack by Amy Butler on sale. Double sided paper too...which is always a two-fer delight. Although I am wild about two sided papers I can go into full anxiety over which side to use. When you are cutting one of the boxes or tags from this cartridge, however, a double sided paper is used wonderfully...I used a pretty floral print with a soft blue for the inside of the crayola box. The box is cut at 8-3/4 inches. I used an oval Nestie, embossed the oval, cut it in half and those two parts plus a ribbon gave me the tied closure. I cut out some flowers on WIMG and popdotted those on the front of the box.
I used one of the tag cuts to create 5 large tags I believe were cut at about 5 inches... That allows the tag and an A2 envie to fit inside the box perfectly. . I used rubber stamp sentiments of different themes, embossed the top or side of the tag, added a wee flower from one of MS's punches and some green ribbon and put those along with envies inside the box.
This pack became a giftie to one of my friends. She really liked it and I hope you do as well. Thanks for stopping by to visit and if you leave a comment, I will truly appreciate hearing from you. Have a super Monday and may your week be wonderful as well.

I asked my hubby if I could go to Carole's house for a play date because you always seem to be having the most fun when it comes to these projects! He said "we'll see...." I'm pretty sure that's a NO! I just love everything about this darling set... the details are so darn pretty!

Eiyiyi! I'm finally starting to catch up after the anniversary and all. BTW, thanks for having my back for the missing link. :D You're such a great friend! When I saw the challenge this week I couldn't help but think of you. This is such a lovely gift. I know what you mean about double sided paper but this challenge was MADE for it! Gorgeous, and I adore all of the embossed tags, too! xxD

What a lovely gift box card set! I absolutely love the colors and the tags are so pretty. I feel the same way about double sided paper, and I understand that anxious feeling, lol! I love this little box cut and will surely be using it again, I love your idea and would you mind if I lift it?! All the embossing is great too!
