This weeks Challenge from A Spoon Full of Sugar - to make anything but a card.

I have made this small gift box which measures 4 x4 inches (excluding the handles). The sides are scored at 1 1/2 inches. The background papers have come from my stash (possibly from Papercraft Essentials Magazine). I have used a circle cutter to cut out the green bazzill circles and used a scalloped scissors to edge them. Sugar Nellie Maggie has had her dresses paper pieced and the rest of her coloured with water colours. The ribbon is from Poppicrafts which I have attached to the box at the sides so I could tie a bow on the front and back of the box. I used a compass circle cutter to cut the handle shapes and then punched out the handles with a medium circle punch.
