2nd post - challenge entry! If you missed my earlier post then please scroll down

Hi folks,

Only me again, with a second blog post for the day ........... this morning the lovely peeps at Humbug Hall unveiled their new challenge for the week and it is: "A BAG OR A BOX"! Well, a pal of mine showed me this fab box template (thank YOU Lauren!) a little while back and ......

The box

And matching tag!

Materials used:
  • A4 sheet of Kanban 300gsm white card cut to be twice the length of the width, the off cut was used to die cut a tag
  • Inkadinkado scroll holly image inked in Versamagic "SAGE" all over the box and on the tag
  • Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the sides of the box
  • Two lengths of narrow white satin ribbon coloured using Marvy YG842
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black
  • Quickie glue pen
  • Foil in red (berries), Green (holly on the tag) and gold (star on the tag)

And there you have it - honestly, it took longer for the quickie glue pen to dry than it did to make the box! Schimples! - hope you like it.

Hope your Friday is motoring to a satisfactory conclusion. To my pal Lauren - feel better soon and to another pal, Debs - hope you get something sorted soon - in the meantime, all the best.

See you tomorrow as it's another challenge day at the purple palace!

Oooo'errrrr how elegant and classy this box is. Think I might need to do some digging and find the tutorial for this lovely box as it would be perfect as an alternative to crackers for the Christmas table. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
