Gift Box Quick & Simple


I know the cellophane doesn't match, but hey call me Frugal, call me cheap, call me using up what I have on hand.. Why should I go and buy tissue paper and or cellophane to put in gift bags boxes that a child doesn't care about or even an adult really? So Until I am out of this roll all gifts are stuffed with this stuff.. LOL

On to the project...

This bird was cut using the Sophisticated cartridge. Shadow and Layer cut at 3.0'
I then used the swiss dots embossing folder and embossed the bird, I dusted her with pearl ex pewter to give her a grayish color.. I adhered her to a top note die cut and added ribbon. The bird is on both side of the box.. I initially was going to use it as a gift tag that is why the ribbon is where it is, but decided I liked it better on the box.. Simple, Cute ok... it could probably use a bit more paper or ribbon or bling or something.. but you know what this is what people get when my kids tell me an hour before a birthday party they were invited too, ha ha!
