Dinosaur Gift Box

Hi Folks
Hope you have all been managing to make the most of the nice weather we are having in the UK at the moment.  Long may it continue.  I do love being able to sit out in the evenings with a nice cold drink.  Just a bit too hot for me during the night to get a good night's sleep lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Kraftyhands.  Our theme for this month is:
Wrap It Up
We would like to see you use your stash to create lovely gift boxes and packaging.

Here is my inspiration project using images and papers from the Dangerous Dinosaur CD which can be found here.

I used a popcorn box template that I have had for ages to cut out the basic box using white card.  The sides of the box are covered with papers from the CD matted onto some blue box.  I cut out one of the small toppers and attched to the handle of the box using some green ribbon.  I also put some green ribbon around the bottom of the box.
A really quick project but this would be ideal for any dinosaur loving youngster to receive a gift in.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to Kraftyhands for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super inspiration from my talented teamies.

Crafting by Designs - Anything goes
