Make It Monday #225 - Die Cut Shaped Boxes

Hello friends.  Ashley has a wonderful tutorial on this weeks Make It Monday challenge, and shows us how to turn any of our die cut shapes into fun party favor boxes.  I chose to use the Enclosed: Leaf die to make mine, and although I think it turned out really cute, I wish I would have thought it through a bit more and chose something with a flat bottom.  Take a look:



Before cutting out the back piece of my leaf, I sponged using Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, & Peeled Paint), and then embossed the leaf veins in gold.  My sequins in the shaker part are from the Shakers + Sprinkles kit, and the little leaf tag was die cut from the Quilted: Autumn set. 

And because I had the Quilted: Autumn set out, why not make a card?!


LOVE this set!!  Used leftover paper that I had sponged for my favor box for the quilt pieces and cut the frame from kraft cardstock.  The sentiment and the die cuts are also from Quilted: Autumn.

Make sure you check out Ashley's video and cute, cute favor boxes right HERE. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)

  3. The inking is gorgeous, and I love that sweet leaf tag! Your card's beautiful leaf image makes me want to play with that set again. Love the kraft trim, and those pretty leaves on the sentiment banner. And I think after seeing your container, we're all going back to add a handle!
