Bags & Boxes is the HM&F DT challenge this week!

For Challenge #31, we were to create a bag or a box using this week's SPONSOR; The Cutting Cafe's templates & images. WOW, this company really has a great variety of Template files & Printable images to download, print and use. Go check them out here: http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/

Ya know, Ive never made a box before now...... and Im so glad I finally did because this was just waaaayyy tooo fun!!! Here are my 2 projects;

I followed the candy box template from The Cutting Cafe' and created a larger size wihout the window for mine. The stamps used here are by Stampabilities-House Mouse Designs. The main image is a stamp called: "Eggcellant", featuring Hop-it, Bumble & itty-bit, #HMVR1007, that's colored in with Marvy LePlume Markers.

I also decorated a bag that was super simple.


This is just a plain Paper Kraft Bag from Michael's that I decorated with House Mouse Designer Wrapping Paper. Yeap, there's HM wrapping papers out there folks! I found out when I saw this lonely one listed on eBay. So I didnt do much here, except for the added Bazzill Textued Cardstock Matting, Scalloped Circle & Edges, Punched corners, Stickles added to images, Ribbon and a printed circle sentiment from The Cutting Cafe'.

Thanks for looking! America

Fabulous creations - I love those cute Easter bunnies, and what gorgeous colours and papers.
As for the bag - I'm speechless (well as speechless as I ever get)
you might not have done much - but what you did do has created a bag that looks so luxurious you could give it me with nothing in it & I would be 'over the moon'
