Erin Go Bragh - a Cute Treat Box!

Good morning, CardMonkey/Rumple Ribbon fans. It's time for me to post another Thursday blog post on the Lovebug Creations' blog site, as part of my Creative Team work fun.  How I enjoy playing with these delightful ribbons!

This week, I've made an adorable floral topped hexagonal paper container. In it, I've stashed some deee-licious Irish Potatoes in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

Using a super-easy/super-fast cut file available from the Silhouette America online store ($0.99), I cut the box in a single piece. Folding it was a bit tricky to figure out, but if I could get the hang of it, so can you.

While the box stays closed on its own, I wrapped its "neck" with GREEN LEAVES Rumple Ribbon, part of the new collections by Lovebug Creations. For the tag, I used a Hambo Stamps digi-stamp that I colored with Copics and embellished with Stickles. There's also a little "Kiss Me!" tag that is part of the Irish Monkey file. I tied the tag on with green and orange baker's twine. The whole package is topped with a Shamrock, cut using the Cameo with a different file. 

To give you an idea of scale, the box is 2" from the bottom to the shoulder where it curves up to the cut-petal closure. It holds about a cup of Irish Potatoes.

Erin Go Bragh!!
