Creative Cuts and More & Be Inspired # 50

Hope everyone is having a great wednesday! this is a super crazy busy week for me at work but that is okay, i have all day friday free and my scrap room is calling me! i also got good news last week that the business school where i teach asked me to come back for two more classes next term so i am super pumped about that.

Here is my latest project from Creative Cuts and more. I cannot get enough of these fun little die cut boxes. They are so fun to make. I thought this would be a great gift card holder for a baby or kid's birthday. This particular box is the crayon box. Make sure you check out 2Sketches4you b/c they are sponsoring this week's sketch with a card kit!

I used Sassafrass Lass pp's, ran it through my Cuttlebut and added a combo of Shimmerz spritz and Glimmer Mist to the raffia.






I did a tut on how to make paper bows over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog this week! I have to admit, my wonderful friend Joanne showed me these first so this is not my original idea. But I love it and use it a lot...I have the measurements memorized, LOL.
