Anything but a Card at Catch the Bug

Good morning,  Monday is 'Anything But A Card'  day at Catch the Bug. For my project I decorated a little kraft box which I found lurking in a cupboard whilst looking for something else. I used  two of the images from a sweet set called Mini Set Miss Izzy Flowers 
I cut a strip of blue spotted DP to fit around the side of the lid, used a border punch along one edge and stuck it to the lid, then glued a strip of cotton trim around the edge.
I managed to print out the circular flower with sentiment  to fit the box lid exactly (couldn't believe my luck!), coloured it with copics and stuck it onto the lid. I printed it again, same size, cut out and coloured the flower, adding dots with a white gel pen,  adhered it over the first flower with foam pads, then added the button and twine. I printed and coloured the tag, and added it to the gift box with a twine bow.

Thanks for visiting and have a good week.

Wow, this is fabulous, you have done a brilliant job with this especially with the box going from larger to smaller (if you follow that). Great colours, image and papers, love the title tag too.
