Fancy Box of Thanks
As I promised, here's another project using the single stamp set So Many Thanks! I started by creating the box using my Big Shot and the Fancy Favor Die. I did trim off the decorative edge of the die. Before I assembled the box, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and Pretty in Pink marker to stamp the row of hearts along the bottom of the box. Yes, those little hearts are from the same stamp. :-)
After I assembled the box, I used my Crop-a-Dile (smallest hole punch) to punch the holes along the top. Then I threaded the 1/8" Early Espresso taffeta ribbon through the holes. With a different piece of ribbon and set of holes, I tied the bow so that it went through the front AND back layers of the box--holding it closed.
For the tag, I markered and stamped the image with Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, and Early Espresso. I did add some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to the little hearts. I also spritzed the Rich Razzleberry Scallop Circle punch with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.
