“Banner Smoochie” Birthday Box

This is my very first time making a box but it will not be my last.  I had so much fun making and decorating it.  TBS (The Stamping Boutique) is celebrating their 3rd birthday all month.   This is one of my other DT projects, see next post for first one.  There is a challenge going on at TSB called “Banners Days” all you have to do is include a banner in your project.  Get going now and join in the challenge at:
If you like the digi stamp I used you can buy it at:  The Stamping Boutique is having a 30 % off sale right now.

I made my own flowers and the rose on top is made with the EK Success Medium, it has 8 layers.  For the flowers around the bottom I used the EK Success Small and it has 3 layers.  The 3D butterfly on top is made from 3 MS butterfly punches.  I just love the 3D effect it gives.

I used in this project:

TSB – “Banner Smoochie” image 
Spellbinders – Circle and Lace Circle Dies
EK Success – Medium and Large Retro Flower Punches
MS – Butterfly Punch
Queen & Co. – Bling
Blue ink to distress edges of butterfly
