More Boxes and Fall Paper!

I just couldn't help but make up some more of these cute boxes! Both of these are really similar but one of them is a lot harder to make because it uses retired ribbon AND has one of those foldy circle things on it. Which, after making, I'm not convinced was worth it.

Here's the fussier version. This ribbon is retired now but I'm sure Soft Suede would look just as good here. I just didn't have any of that on hand.
And that foldy circle thing you ask? Yes, its cool but again, not sure its totally worth the effort. I think maybe for Christmas Ornaments I might make some larger ones, with glitter and crap on them but this tiny one was sort of a nightmare for me.
But look at the giant button!!!

Here is the simpler version. I think its just as cute but WAY easier to make and reproduce! This Spice Cake paper is sooo pretty though that it would probably look fantastic on anything! And the giant button doesn't hurt either.
Instead of the foldy circle deal I just used an extra large scallop circle and you know what? It might not have a "wow" factor to it, but I really like it. And it doesn't make me feel angry. Which is a bonus.
And I just love the ruffled Pool Party ribbon too. Who knew it would look so good for fall? I can't wait to use it for Christmas too!

Oh, and on both of these boxes the belly band slips right off so the lucky recipient can open it, eat the treat inside and then put it all back together again. Or redecorate it themselves. So fun!

I used:
* Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
* Naturals Ivory Card stock
* Soft Suede ink
* Spice Cake Designer Paper
* Hemp Twine, Old Olive Striped Ribbon and Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon
* Spice Cake Designer Buttons
* Extra Large Scallop Punch
* Kraft Gift Box
