Convention was UNBELIEVABLE!

Sorry to leave you hanging for so long--I was preparing for, and then attending, the Stampin' Up! 2011 Convention! It was fantastic, every year they top themselves. I'll get to more of that later. For right now I need to get all my stuff reorganized and put back away, but I wanted to take a minute to share a cute little gift box I made today, in the style of one shared with us at Convention. I know I'm biased, but I think it came out pretty cute:

Stampin' Supplies: Flower Fest stamp set, Occasions Alphabet stamp set, Box #2 Die, Whisper White card stock, Wisteria Wonder ink & ruffled ribbon, Island Indigo ink & card stock, Pool Party ink (sponged on oval) & card stock & ruffled ribbon, 1/2" Circle Punch, Oval Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Baker's Twine, White Gel Pen, Crop-a-Dile, Brights button, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots.

Dimensions: The strip around the box is 11" long by 2-1/2" wide. Score at 4-7/8" and 6-1/4". Punch both short ends with Scallop Edge Punch. After that, punch the 1/2" Circle Punch hole through both ends. I used about 18" of each color of ribbon--lay center of ribbon across front, then wrap ends around and pull through holes, then tie ends around the center of ribbon at front. (I'll show you this in pictures again later, I just don't have time right this second!)
