JUGS template time

SORRY - for some reason my post did not go live!

Good mornin' it's time for a Saturday JUGS challenge. This week is template time - Lisa is our hostess and she is challenging everyone to make a template of some sort and decorate using ribbons and flowers and buttons!

Yo know how much I love templates and I had the perfect reason to make one this week - I needed to package up a birthday gift for a co-worker and here's what I came up with:

I'm using the template called So Fortunate by My Time Made Easy. It is the cutest little "chinese take out box" and it goes together in a snap. I used some PTI card stock and some SU! designer paper I had on hand. The rest was all about embellishing so - based on the challenge I used ribbons, buttons (on top and on the front) and flowers! I also added some rhinestones to the center of the buttons for a bit-o-bling :-)  The sentiment is also from MTME.

A view from the other side. The flash kind of washed out the center of the light green flower.

Here's a close up of the top of the box.  where you can see the clustering of the buttons. The ribbon is tied around the handle to help hold it closed. I layered 3 flowers together to use all the colors.

Please pop over and visit the rest of the DT then come play along with JUGS this week.
