Art Impressions Challenge - It's in the Bag/Box

This week's Art Impressions Blog challenge is "It's in the Bag/Box" - Make a paper bag/box.   I'm using Birthday Gal Front and Back (Sku#U3199) to help decorate a box that I made with my Ultimate Tool.  Looks like she's popping out of the cake. :o)

The first thing I did was to pick out my papers/cardstock for the box. I'm using design paper for the lid and red cardstock for the base. To reinforce the lid, I glued it to a piece of white cardstock. I cut the size to 8" x 8". I stamped the birthday gal's front randomly on the inside of the box lid, and also added some dots with a marker. To score the sides for the box and lid, I followed the easy directions that came with my Ultimate Tool.

Next, I used the lid design paper and my Copic favorite combo chart to choose the colors I wanted for the image.  I drew a simple tier cake to set go with the front side of the image, and colored that too.  I cut out all the images and edged them with a black water based marker.

I used a liquid adhesive to adhere the images while the lid was flat.  Lastly, I glued the box sides and used clips to hold them in place while they dried completely. All set for a little gift for the real Birthday gal!

What a hoot! How surprised someone would be when they open their gift and see the backside of the lady as well. I love this idea. So creative.
