Fun With Artiste Boxes

I love putting small gifts and gift cards in cute little boxes. So, with my pile of scrap paper and leftover embellishments, I made some adorable gift boxes that were quick and easy to put together.

I was inspired by one of the Idea Book color palettes - gray with green, blue and pink over a Kraft base. The boxes came from the Artiste cartridge (there are so many to choose from!)

A close-up of this cutie shows the gray embossed Paper Fundamentals base, plus some paper scraps from Skylark and Ariana. I had to throw in some bling, so I used the topiary chevron ribbon, gray baker's twine, Smoothie striped washi tape, flamingo dots and Skylark assortment. What a great way to use up leftover embellishments!

Similar paper and embellishments, but I was able to use some retired Sorbet ribbon and one of the adorable Base and Bling rhinestones. Plus one of my all time-favorite stamp sets - For a Friend.

I used the retired Chantilly textiles to make the bow, and I added a cute Base and Bling Dreamer charm to the baker's twine. 

Now I'm ready to start the gift giving. :)
