Autumn Gift Box

Are you ready for a new challenge at My Grafico? For the next two weeks our challenge will be:
Come Out of the Box. Enter for a chance to win this SVG & Printable Favor Gift Box by Sherry K. Designs. Entries will be accepted until November 4th, midnight. We were given the following SVG file to use in our project. (Don't worry, if you don't have a machine that will cut this type of file, your can cut it with your scissors. Easy Peasy!!)

I chose the milk carton box shape to make a darling Autumn Gift Box. I ran the template off on DP and cut it out. The assembly directions are very easy. I added a couple of orange ribbons and some twine to tie it shut. Decorating it using with a handmade rose and handmade hat pins made it "elegant!"

Materials Used:
DP, Ribbon, CS: Michael's
Baker's Twine
Vintage Button
