Craft Your Passion #93 - In the Bag/Box

This week's challenge at Craft Your Passion is In the Bag/Box. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. When you're guest designing and you'd like to make a good impression, it's good idea to read the directions! Turns out, the challenge was to MAKE a bag or box. I decorated a bag for my project, and then looked more closely at what I was supposed to do. So I made a box using my Ultimate tool - super easy, by the way! I thought I'd go ahead and share both of them with you.

I'm going to share the project that I should have made for the challenge first. I made the box using my Ultimate tool. This was my first box with the tool and it was super easy. I made it out of two pieces of 12x12 cardstock - minimal cutting and NO measuring! I printed the Scene It Ava Deacon Birthday image on Make It Colour paper and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. Here's the top:
Here's the front:

I'd like to enter the box in the following challenges:
1. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #137 - celebrations
2. Sweet stampin challenge - all that glitters
3. The Crafty Pad #153 - glitter and gems

Now for the project I did first, which would not qualify for the challenge.  I've been really enjoying decorating plain white gift bags (dollar store 2 for $1) and turning them into something special. I used the same image as for the box. I printed the image on Make It Colour paper and colored it with Copics. Then, I let loose with the Stickles. I think a birthday bag needs lots of sparkle. I added a sentiment and some embellies to finish it.
I'd like to enter this bag in the following challenges:
1. Whimsy Inspirations #21 - happy birthday
2. Charisma #1 - Happy birthday
3. Card Crafter's Circle #5 - happy birthday
4. Sentimental Sundays #85 - ribbon
5. ABC Challenge - H is for Happy Birthday

Here are the products I used:

Happy Crafting!
