Back to Basics

The challenge this week at Whimsical Wednesday is getting back to basics. First, we weren't allowed to use our Cricut - my first thought was "what?! I don't remember life before my Cricut" lol :). In addition, we had to use an "old school" item like a sticker. I'm not going to lie, I actually had to go out and buy stickers, but wound up having a lot of fun with this challenge.

After going back and forth between ideas, I found directions on how to put together a cute Ghirardelli box, and I thought it was just what I was looking for. You can find directions HERE. Here's how it turned out....

  12. This box is just so adorable. I love the colors and that little bug on the leaf is precious. I like the white ric rac that separates the green & brown as well as the red bow. You did great!
