The decorated black box



Box with dressform 

Well, you know about my box obsession. One of my faves are these standard rectangle black boxes that typically house a corporate gift. 



I get very excited because
1. I get to use the box to store supplies.
2. There is usually a foam core used to house the corporate gift that I can use as a piercing mat.
3. I get to "dress" up the box. :)


Love it when I get to use the really tiny pieces in my "keep-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash. Yes, the belt is an orange cable tie. *winks*

Supplies: Graphic 45 patterned papers, Prima swirls, Ranger stickles, cable tie, trim, ribbon.

Good grief, you rocked it! And I too love your keep-it-for-a-rainy-day stash because I have two of those! I knew exactly what you meant when I read that! The tiny piece of white ribbon at the bottom? I have that tiny piece of white ribbon; since we're packing to move, did you come over and swipe that piece? Totally kidding, but I wouldn't have minded!
