other challenges as you wish.***

 This is my inspiration project for you.
For this challenge I made a 3D project of a gift box and tag.
I cut out the box using my Silhouette Cameo then embossed the pieces before
putting it together. I also embossed the white flower decoration on the front.
I slotted a piece of co-ordinating ribbon through the holes at the front and tied it in a bow.
I cut out the tag and cupcake embellishment using a Tonic Studios gift box die and
added a green pearl flower at the top.
Hope this will give you lots of inspiration.Take a moment or two to meet my other teamies....
