Rose Blossom SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome, to the Rose Blossom SOTM blog hop!  If you are here from I Didn't Have Potatoes, you are in the right place!   Marg always has something inspiring - Can't wait to see it myself! :)

I wanted to think outside the box, so here is what I came up with...

A box!  I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, with my Explore, to make this Desert Sand box with Cranberry & Cocoa cogs.  The flap had scallops on them, well, that was way too girly for what I wanted to do, so, I cut the tips off!
I used the circles from the gears for a little extra on the box.  I stamped the Cranberry frame on Colonial White with a Cocoa "THANKS".  I cut it down on purpose, to make it more square.  You could uses any of these, frames and sentiments, with a box like this!
I embellished using Twine and Gold Durables Studs.
