Boxes



My son bought himself a take-away curry last week and it came in this amazing box, I decided it would make a great gift box for a present and had a try at re modelling it. The challenge on "Everything but the kitchen sink" is to use Box tops so I am not sure if this qualifies but have decided to enter it just incase. I have used a cereal box top for the scroll on the side of the box though.


This is the end result and I am really pleased with the effect.


Here is a close up of the tags, I decided to use one of Janes fabulous buttons. I was lucky enough to win these on her blog a few weeks ago and they are very precious but I felt it was the finishing touch the labels needed.


I was so thrilled yesterday when I found that this card had been picked out by the Cards blog as one of the challenge winners this week along with Agata from the Hero Arts flickr group. Well done to all the challenge winners!
