Button box

Hello everybody! Brrrrr, it's cold outside. Luckily I can stay inside where it's warm, sit behind my desk and do some crafting. :D

Right, let me tell you about the new challenge at Crafty Ribbons challenge blog. The theme for this challenge is "Anything but a card". So put your thinking caps on and get creative. Me and some of my lovely teamies decided to show you the button box(es) that we decorated. What button boxes I'm talking about? Hop to Crafty Ribbons page and you'll see. ;) Oh, you didn't know that you cen get buttons at Crafty  Ribbons? You can, you can. They have lots of gorgeous buttons to choose from - spotty buttons, stripe buttons, Christmas buttons ... 

Here's how I decorated my button box ...

All the ribbons and buttons I used are from Crafty ribbons; the buttons are from Christmas Berry button box and the ribbons I used are Velvet saddle stitch ribbon - fuchsia/black and 6 mm Grosgrain ribbon ( I *think* I used "ivory" colour, but I am not 100% sure). I made the flowers myself out of newspaper paper. I made the tag with Spellbinders' die and I stamped on with a "Beautiful" stamp that came from "Find your style" set by Close to your heart. Pearls on string are from my stash and the butterflies are a left-over which I get when I use my border butterfly punch. All the DT papers are from Sizzix' Little Sizzles pack.

Oh, another thing before I go ... You are probably wondering what is the prize for our 6th challenge, right? Let me tell you, it's a really nice one. ;) The winner will get to choose ONE of Bev's bags. They are both filled with lots of lovely ribbons (see picture below) so I believe it'll be a tough decision. ;)
