MarkerPop Embossed Gift Box with Belly Band

mp 5.17.13.1
 
Happy Weekend!!
 
Today I have a post for MarkerPop featuring a fun little gift box that is always handy to have on hand. This is a clear box that I ran through my Big Shot with an embossing folder! How absolutely fun and easy is that?! I simply slid a piece of pink cardstock into the box on top of the cards and there you have a simply packaged but oh so pretty little gift box! I made a fun belly band to decorate my box using a Wild Rose Studio set: CL294 Bunny With Cake. I colored the image with Copic Markers:w7, w3, e59, e44, e43, e42, e41, b000, r89, r46, r85, r83, r81, 0 colorless blender. To make a quick and easy belly band, I embellished a wide piece of brown ribbon with some of my favorite washi tape! It adds a fun touch of detail, is fun, easy and quick!

Check out that cake! I got the *cakey* appearance by coloring the cake with my darkest pink color and then applying some Copic Colorless Blender solution to an old terry cloth scrap and dabbing it onto the cake! LOVE!!!! How simple and easy and fun! Other fun touches are the faux stitching in a white gel pen and distressing with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
