Reward Box

Hi Crafters!  This week I'm sharing with you a box I simply decorated.  I wanted to have a rewards box for me to put money in each week so when I reach certain milestones I'll have the money to reward myself.  This box was SUPER simple.  I bought it at a party favor store for like .80 cents or something like that.  Super cheap.  It is 4" high and 6" wide and 4" in depth.  This is what the box looked like before I decorated it:

I then cut out this gorgeous red paper just a 1/2" shorter so a little of the white showed on each side.  The paper is from the DCWV Immortal Love paper stack.  It's based off of Twilight.  :)

I wrapped a white satin ribbon around the whole box and then tied a double bow on the front using my Bow Easy tool.  I was going to put a pearl design on it but I just didn't feel like it in the end and I really liked the simplicity of it.

I hand cut a slot on top using an xacto knife.

This is on top of my filming desk so none of my nieces and nephews accidentally "discover" what's inside.  :)

~ Thanks for stopping by!

I'll be honest Pam, when I saw that box I wanted it. And was a little sad inside because there is NO WAY I could ever hope to re-create one of your gorgeous paper creations. But I read the post anyway and....I think I might be able to do it!! You know, if I ever find a box to begin with. BUT I am going to look. I LOVE THIS BOX!! That ribbon is so perfect!

I need to get me one of those bow easy tool things. What I love most about this project is the reason you made it! You so deserve to be rewarded! :)
