Monkey Love gift box



I had so much fun making this one. I found these little undecorated boxes in the clearance stuff at Walmart after Christmas. I used designer paper and covered the box and then decorated with a cute lil monkey. I used my create-a-cut to do the scallop. I added ribbon around the edges to finish this and make it look more professional. The bow was made with 3 1/2" ribbon strips tied together. It is called a 4 hounds ribbon blossom by Pam Bassett and you can find instructions here:Indigo Studio I used a brad and a cuttlebug flower for the center. The monkey is stamped in basic gray and water colored with my aqua painter. The love you this much tag is done with nestabilites and cuttlebug tag dies. I stapled the ribbons in the ribbon slots. Monkey love and the polka dot background stamps can be found at All that Scraps (link on the side bar). Monkey love is a C.C.Designs stamps set. Adorable!
