Another little box

At C.R.A.F.T. Challenge this week our theme is 'Boxes'.  I made a pyramid box, and I also made a matching card:

I used the Dungarees Printable Gift Box template from our sponsor Toucan Scraps.   I altered the colour a little by reducing the opacity so the lighter colour cardstock would show through. I secured ribbon to the box using double-sided tape and the bow holds the flap closed.

The tags are made using an image from the Everyday Sentiments set by JLJ Designs - who was our May sponsor at CRAFT Challenge. The only colour I added was a bit of white to the flower border, using watercolour pencil (with no water). The tags are both mounted onto silk gerberas from Bumblebee Crafts.

I'm submitting my project at:
# One Stop Craft ~ Tags
# Dream Valley ~ Ribbon
I used spotted grosgrain ribbon from American Craft 
# Papertake Weekly ~ Anything goes
# Everybody Art ~ Shapes

I'm submitting just the card at:
# Quirky Crafts ~ No patterned paper
I embossed the background with Cuttlebug 'Daisy Design' EF
