Another 2-5-7-10 Box


You all probably saw the little box I posted earlier here, and this is one I made recently for a "Friend to Friend" swap that I was in.  We had a different assignment each week for 6 weeks and then boxed up what we made and sent it to our friend.  The next several posts will show you what I made her.  She likes the little juice mixes that are just the right size for adding to a water bottle, so that's what I stuffed (and I mean stuffed!) the inside of this box with.  She said she's not a huge flower fan (she likes them, but doesn't prefer them) and so I thought of the little owls in the Owl Together Now stamp set.  I figured I could make a cute box out of them and this is what I came up with.  I am absolutely addicted to paper piercing lately.  I can't seem to do a card or other project without it!  I did do some stamping on the Pacific Point CS with my Seeing Spots set - I liked that look for a background.  Anyway, I hope you like it!

All supplies used are SU! unless otherwise noted.
