TBBM 3-d Box Challenge

The challenge this week at Bitten By The Bug 2 is to use an older cart - Tags Bags Boxes & More - and create a 3D box.

That was one of my first cartridges, and I was quite shocked when I heard it was being retired. It is SO handy! This is what I came up with ...

I cut a this cute purse as large as I could on a 12x12" cutting mat, and also a large tag from the cartridge. I folded it up and made a little 'gift card' or 'cash' holder that will tuck inside the purse.

The flowers were cut from the Paper Lace cartridge out of black card stock and glued onto the purse after assembly.

I thought that the front flap needed 'something', so I glued a strip of black card stock to the inside, then hand trimmed around the curves leaving a narrow border.

A quick and easy gift set to put together. Thanks for stopping by today!
