Aren't these just gorgeous?! I was really excited when I saw this palette. I haven't used Basic Gray in a while, so I wanted that to be the base of my card. Then I saw a challenge at SUO Challenges to make a box or a bag. I have been in a rut of making cards, so I decided to do something different for a change!
Here is a close-up shot of the little rosettes:
And the paper swirls inside the box:
These little boxes are so easy to decorate because you can easily use your scraps of designer paper to embellish them. For my rosettes, I used thin strips of leftover designer paper in different lengths. The longer the paper the smaller I could get the rosette wound. The paper swirls inside the box are so much fun. I just took thin slivers of scraps and wrapped them around a pen to give them a spiral look. I think this would be the cutest box to give someone a gift (like jewelery, Brett...hint, hint) in!
