2-5-7-10 Box

I just LOVE papercrafted boxes. They are always so cute! When last week's tutorial came out at Splitcoaststampers for the 2-5-7-10 Box, I HAD to make it! I finally got the chance. It really is simple too! Just cutting and folding! For this box I used my MissyB Designs set, You're Bugging Me. I just LOVE this set. I used the butterfly for the background of the box too. . .it makes it look all swirly and whimsical. The butterfly is colored in Regal Rose with a blender pen, then I added some sparkles with my Sakura Stardust pen. I watercolored Bordering Blue around the butterfly and added some "bling" for the final touch. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your week is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- MissyB Designs, You're Bugging Me; Paper- Regal Rose, DCWV Watermelon, Whisper White; Ink- Regal Rose, Basic Black; Accessories- white gel pen, Sakura Stardust pen, paper piercer, organdy ribbon, Word Window punch, bling from Walmart, blender pen, Aquapainter.

This is just adorable!! Love that stamp--don't have that one yet. Very cutesy and I love your pink...it really pops! :) Sooo pretty. OOOo, maybe I can whip one up for my niece's bridal shower tonight. We each have to take 2 recipes, so between my daughters and I we have 6 to take. I just stuck them on top of their packages, but this box would be so cute to put them in! :) THANKS FOR SHARING CHARM!!
