Love You Dress Box

Here’s a fun project that I made using my Sizzix eclips (657542 Cards & Envelopes 2)  and stamps from the January Club set (list2write) from  The Stamps of Life.

I cut the dress box using  a Sizzix eclips (657539 Albums, Boxes & Bags 2) out of White Felt cardstock. I cut a second “skirt” from green textured cardstock and sponged the edge with Artichoke Premium Dye ink and then attached it to the front of the box. I decorated with lace and trim. Stamp and cut out small tag and flower. Attach as shown.
