You're sweet!

I've been having fun playing with Sizzix's new scoreboard dies. Yesterday I opened up the rectangle box die. It's another quick and easy box to make. I like how the top cover flaps over and you can add a little decoration to it. I went with Dandelion Design stamps this time.I used a piece of velcro to hold the flap down. That stuff really works!
I used a cherries stamp for the first box. And I put glossy accents over the cherries to make it shiny. The scalloped circle is the large scalloped nestie. I used ric rac instead of ribbon to decorate the boxes. I tried all sorts of adhesive on the ric rac and the best one that I liked is the ribbon adhesive by Glue Arts. It worked!
This is how the box looks on the inside. It's another good sized box to hold trinkets or goodies. Great for gift giving.
I wanted the middle box to have a saying so I used the "you're sweet" stamp for this one.
And lastly, I love the cute little ladybug stamp. I colored her pink instead of the usual red. You can tie all 3 boxes together with a ribbon and give it to someone as a gift. It's a real cute set!
Thanks for stopping by today and leaving me comments. I really appreciate it and it makes me feel good to know that someone is reading it. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!! I'm off to meet a friend for coffee.

Super duper, cute Cheryl! Did you use chipboard? Great idea to make a sturdier box to hold lots of stuff!
