I just love making all kinds of boxes ( Almost as much as any type of moving card ) Anywho Jenn did this fabulous tutorial on the 2,5,7,10 box over at SCS and I just knew I had to make one for myself .. I used the petals & paisley designer paper and I finally got to use some of my flirty ribbon ( long gone.. no longer available Boo Hoo )I also used my year after year stamp set. Every time I used the present from this set I always grab my aqua painter .. as soon as I stamp image I go over the image with my aqua painter and it smears the color around perfectly blending and shading .. No extra color needed ..( I especially love this technique with purely pomegranate cause that color is so vivid ). Any way I also used Friend to friend ( retired ) for the Happy Birthday tag on the side .. I also added a extra scallop of white under the flap over to bring it all together KWIM? and as if there needed to be more pink on my box I added a snip of Lt pink GG ribbon with a staple in the corner of my present . I love how the Flirty ribbon really completes this box . so Happy I had my flirty ribbon Oh and lets not forget the tiny white gel pen dots on the present ..(betcha didn't see them HUH?).
