For my project I choose to make a gift box for a formal occasion, or even wedding:

I used our sponsor's free svg file for take-out box.

And used some of my remaining negative cuts for the tag:

The flower, the cloth-pin and sequin are from Connie's shop.

I used some old wedding stickers to embellish my tag.

And tons of liquid glass to glue the box together because of the glitter on the paper:

I added to studio G glitter glue to the center of the  flower and some of the glitter coming of from the paper to the rest of the flower.

Some closer looks:

I hope you enjoy this project and give me some comments.

 Up next is Theresa -
