Here are some of the boxes I've made for my sale. I've never done either of these type before of boxes before. Let me tell you, I think I'm getting into making 3D items and having fun making them.

You can find the tutorial for making these Box in a Bag on Splitcoast.

For mine I used some retired Designer series paper, scallop trim punch, and some other punches. I used the little leaves and beautiful wings dies. On the purple one the "handles" are photo corner punches triangle up. The ribbon is threaded through the space in the center of the triangle. On the green one I just used a circle punch and jumbo eyelets and put linen thread through.

You can find the tutorial for 2-5-7-10 Box on Splitcoast also.

I used the Tailgaiting wheel and D is for Dog with eyelets and linen thread on the blue one. I did a bit of watercoloring to highlight some of the images. On the green one I used Tart & Tangy and the sentiment "so sweet" from Goody-Goody Gumdrops (retired) and I clear embossed the swirl from the Christmas set "Season of Joy". I just punched some bigger holes with the crop-a-dile and threaded the ribbon through.

Thanks for looking! By the way these will be filled with CANDY!
