Box and Bag Swap




Good afternoon, hope all is well with you. I've been working on a boxes and bags swap. I decided to sign up for this swap so that I would finally try to make some of the things that I thought were really neat. I'm kinda of a chicken when it comes to trying new stuff. I always think I'm going to mess it up, so I don't try it. Well, I was forced to this time, and it worked out good for me. I decided to do the sour cream containers, and the ghiradelli box. We had to have stamping on them somewhere, and at least one embellishment. For the sour cream container I used parchment paper and punched a circle then stamped a cupcake, colored it, and glued it on there. I used a brad to attach it to the container. I used a gem in the middle of the flower and added a bit of glitter glue. I think it turned out very cute. But my favorite is the ghiradelli box. It was so easy. I got the box all done, adhered some dp and made the closure out of a small scallop square with a one inch square punched out on top of that. I stamped a cute little butterfly and colored it with bic mark it's. I used pop up tape and used that as a closure. I did use copics and bic mark it's on the cupcake. And the best part of all is: I used scraps for all of these-yay!! I have so many and forget to use them. Hope you like them, thanks for looking.
