In a Pinch
Good Morning everyone. Today I am playing along with the "JUGS" challenge which is to use one of Lauren Meader's wonderful templates. The only hard part of this challenge was trying to decide which one of her amazing templates to use. Her creativity is just amazing!!! Check out the challenge here and play along. And now her templates are compatible with my Cricut!! How cool is that!!! All you need is the SCAL program, download the template, and cut it with the Cricut. So easy!!!
I decided to use the "In A Pinch" template. This cute little box is the perfect gift size. It is perfect for some yummy chocolate or even a gift card to your favorite stores.
Once I got the box assembled, I needed to decide how to decorate and embellish it. I chose paper from the My Minds Eye Playful Posies Stack. I really like the colors in this paper. It might also be because my favorite color is blue.
For my tag, I chose the designer center from the Romantic Sentiments set and the Round Decorative Frames Borders by JustRite Stampers. It is stamped onto cream cardstock using Versamagic Night Sky and diecut using the Spellbinders Classic Circles & Petite Scallop Circle Nestabilities. To dress it up a bit, I added Kaiser pearls.
To finish it off, I added some matching polka dot ribbon, Prima Flower and 2 branches. Very cute box and a perfect presentation for the perfect gift.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. Have a wonderful day!!
