A Little Art Philosophy Take Out

Did you know that Close To My Heart now carries Kraft Cardstock? It's the perfect neutral. For this quick gift box, I cut the Art Philosophy take out box out of kraft, added a wee bit of stamping using Party Pennants and Love Life and finished it off with my favorite ribbon.

Tip: Rather than wrapping the ribbon all the way around the box and tying the bow on top, I wrapped a piece of ribbon just long enough to go around the box and tape under each side flap. Then I tied a pretty bow and attached it to the top. This way the recipient can open the gift, close it again without having to worry about tying another bow and still have it looking pretty. What I like best about this method is that the original recipient is likely to reuse it and I'm all about my crafts being used forward.
