Embellished Gift Box

Now that the Calendar is finished I need to wrap it.  I had a great box and decided to add my own special touch :) 

This is the box before I touched it.  Great for a gift that you're not planning on shipping but are going to hand deliver instead.






This is after adding paper, 
painting all of the sides and 
sponging on top with 
Autumn Brown Paint, 
and finishing it off with ribbon around the sides and a bow in the corner embellished with a button.


Adhesives used:
Glue Stick
Glue Pen
Hot Glue Gun








FINISHED!!! I Love It <3

I added the label on half of the lid 
I used my Cricut with the Heritage Cartridge for the title and added swirls.  Looking through my brads I found Monochromatic flowers that fit perfectly with the color scheme. I used some more of that great ribbon for the pull and adding a thin brown strip, anchoring it with a button. And finally spraying Gold Smooch spray all over.
