Cute takeout box


For today's DT work at Inspiration Destination I have something completely different of what I am used to make. This week's challenge, our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe, and I am using one of their templates called Chinese Takeout box template

I was a little worried about making a 3D project but at the end, I loved doing it and the result is quite nice. I have to say that the file was perfect. It comes with a handle for the box. I decided not to make it and then I regretted it. The flowers would have been great in the paper handle instead of the ribbon, but...well, what is done is done. 

I cut the box from white cardstock with my cutting machine, but the file is in pdf too, so if you don't have a cutting machine you can still use it. I colored the cardstock with distress inks and I added a background of stars (from Hero Arts) with clear embossing ink and yellow embossed powders. I cut the flowers with scissors from a homemade mulberry fake paper. The sentiment is from that paper too. The die cut is from Lawn Fawn. I added a corner of a doily, some pearls and that was it!!!

I hope you liked the result of my experiment. I am very pleased with the result and I am sure that it will make a very good gift with some treats inside :).

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

  2. Your box is beautiful. I love the pretty flowers and all the lovely details! Like you I was terrified of a 3-D project but was surprised at how well it went together. Now if I just had a silhouette then I wouldn't be so apprehensive! LOL! (Maybe that line will work on my husband!)
