Crafty Ribbons #6 | Anything but a card

It's time again for a Crafty Ribbons Challenge. For this challenge we are doing ANYTHING BUT A CARD and I thought it would be the PERFECT time to play with the Crafty Ribbons buttons boxes. At Crafty Ribbons the yummy buttons come with a flat white matchbox-style sliding box. This box however is so much more fun. It measures 4"×2"×1½". 

Besides being a great box for my buttons, I thought it would also make a fun "gift" box. I stacked 3 of these boxes together and covered with my favorite Bazzill Kraft Card Stock. I chose the fun Advent colors for my ribbons with the beautiful purple embossed velvet and the fun pink imprinted grosgrain. I also love the sheer silver wired ribbon and thought it would provide for a shiny accent to my big puffy bow. I decorated the "gift box" to look like a wrapped package, extending the Kraft card stock to the "drawers" of my box and to the lining of the "drawers." For a final touch I added a punched tag with a piece of 1/8" grosgrain. This would be perfect for a series of presents that go together--jewelry perhaps, beautiful hair accessories, doll items...The sky is the limit!

With the box that my buttons came with, I decided to cover the box with a piece of denim, edge the edges of the box with some gingham ribbon so that the denim wouldn't fray and then add ribbon accents to the "pull" and sides of the box. I added Crafty Ribbons buttons to further embellish my little button box! I love the primary colors in this set of buttons and wanted the box to reflect what would be contained inside!

 Thank you for looking! I hope you enjoyed my projects! If you would like to join our challenge, hop on over to the Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is:
