Boxes, Baskets and Bags Oh My!

March 5, 2017 4 Comments

Creation Station Blog Hop

Welcome to the March 2017 Creation Station blog hop!

We’re all about 3D this month as

we share Boxes, Baskets and Bags — Oh My!

There’s lots of fun inspiration coming your way!!

For my first box, I used the wonderful Balloon Pop Up Thinlits

Balloon Pop Ups Gift Box from theartfulinker.com

The main die in the set makes a wonderful see through panel

for the sides of the box.

These sides are lined with Window Sheet.

Moroccan designer series paper was used to finish the top and bottom of the box,

as well as for one of the balloons.

The other two balloons were stamped with images from Balloon Adventures.

And the box is finished with a Gold Glimmer paper accent on the top.

I can’t wait to use this for a birthday, graduation, golden anniversary or whatever the next celebratory occasion is!

If you’d like to make this box, a tutorial is available!

For my second creation,

Moroccan Petite Cafe Bag from theartfulinker.com

I wanted to use more of the beautiful Moroccan designer series paper.

So keeping the theme of the hop in mind,

I pulled out a Petite Cafe Gift Bag.

After adding a layer of Moroccan designer paper to the front of the bag,

I cut a layer of Gold Glimmer Paper with the largest

So Detailed Thinlits.

It makes a gorgeous sparkly layer!

The pictures don’t do this delicate, filigree layer justice!!

Before folding the top down,

I added a cluster of lengths of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim and 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim,

Moroccan designer paper banners and a single Dapper Denim banner.

On top of this cluster is one Basic Pearl.

To finish, a strip of Dapper Denim layered with Gold Glimmer Paper was added to the fold over top

and a second strip with small Basic Pearl accents was added near the bottom of the bag.

Easy and beautiful!

That’s a tough combination to beat.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Balloon Pop Up Box and embellished Gift Bag.

Product details can be found below.
