Triple the Sketch #68

I am very excited to show you today's Triple the Sketch (#68) Reveal. I had a ton of fun making this project! I flipped the sketch upside down, and used it to alter a box. I am in love with the Graphic 45 paper, and of course LOVE all vintage stuff, so I went crazy with vintage style for this project!

I had saved this Godiva Chocolate box because it was a cool size and depth. It was the perfect item to use with this paper.

I may line the inside at some point too, but until I know what I'm putting IN the box, I will just leave it "bare."

I used some grosgrain ribbon to cover the box edge.

All of the other ribbons came out of my scrap bag, and are all different textures, there is shine and velvet, and sort of embossed - very vintage. The flowers are mulberry roses that I purchased at CropStop. My new addiction! The flowers, not buying stuff at CropStop! Honest! The leaves are petals from some green flowers. (Again, green flowers?)

I used Tim Holtz distress inks to color the tags - spiced marmalade and dried marigold. The stamps I used are Inkadinkado and Judikins (scrip text). I love the pop of orange on the paper, so wanted to bring that out in the tags.

Thanks for looking!
