Bag, Tag, Box (BTB)

HAPPY FRIDAY! Do you have a great weekend planned? We do!!!!! Fridays are FANTASTIC and a great day to unveil a new segment here at Sweetest Designs: Bag, Tag, Box!
I've got some great boxes and tags and bags in store for you. These are great for holidays, presents and shower gifts and centerpieces.

Best of all they're easily customized and ecomonical.

This is a Gable Box. It used one piece of card stock plus some for decorating. I used scraps (whisper white and suede for the focal image) and will not include that in the cost of the box. Kraft, black or white CS is about 19 cents per sheet, colored cardstock is about 23 cents per sheet. I used a about 8" of ribbon to secure the box closed (this is approx. 15 cents). Minimal amounts of sticky strip is needed! I'll guess I used 12" or 25 cents worth of adhesive. TOTAL COST OF BOX: 59 cents!

This box is quite sturdy and great trendy shape and design and very easy to measure, cut and fold.

I double stamped the butterfly and cut it out, bent it, and placed it ontop of the original image. Here's a side shot of the raised butterfly. The wide oval punch is perfect for shaping the handles! The tops are rounded with a corner rounder.

CS: Kraft, Soft Suede, Whisper White
