A box-in-a-bag thank you

I had really wanted to try Diana Gibbs' Box-In-A-Bag but needed the right occasion to feel inspired to do it. I recently wanted a small thank you present and thought it would the perfect occasion to give this little project a whirl.

I wanted to use some of the new designer paper from the Holiday Mini Catalogue and thought this Riding Hood Red dp from the Ski Slope series looked pretty cheerful. I paired it with some Baja Breeze card stock and it turned out to be a nice combo.

For the main image I used my oval and scalloped oval nesties along with the Pocket Silhouettes set, (so cute!) and a little taffeta ribbon. I also used the pocket silhouettes to fancy up the border along the bottom. I used some Baja Breeze to give it that water mark look.

Fill this up with some candy or a small gift and you've got an instant present!

Hope you like! ;)

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red
Paper: Baja Breeze CS, Ski Slope DP
Tools: Oval & scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Die Machine, round tab punch, horizontal slot punch, sticky strip
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon

I have been SOO bad about posting... your bloggy box of goodies arrived a couple of weeks ago ( see? I told you I was awful ). THANK YOU!!
I love the stamp set, and admittedly I've never played with any of the Heidi masks.. I will be, however, when I start working on Christmas altered goodies!

*hug* you rock, my stampy friend!
