Double Box

Welcome to the It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. Do you like to receive gifts?
How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; Gift bags, boxes,
baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some
time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.

You should have arrived here from, TX Scrapper Mom If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B

For my project, I created a double box! The box was created in Design Studio using the George and Basic Shapes cart. I cut two boxes using papers from DCWV Nana's Nursery stack. Once the boxes were made, I used coordinating paper from the same stack and made a cover and handle for the boxes. I printed the sentiment and cut it and the scallop circle using the Mini Monograms cart. It stays closed with a velcro closure under the scallop circle. A few ribbons and prima flowers and my box was ready to fill!

And, I filled it to the brim! There are 2 washcloths, a bib, a pair of socks and a onesie. . .all in pretty pinks and perfect for a baby girl gift!

But, using other papers, you could fill the boxes with baby boy items or school supplies or handmade cards or candy!

Speaking of candy, I am offering some fun blog candy on this hop…the Christmas Village solutions cartridge so you can start planning for those holiday gifts and decorations! For a chance to win just become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post. On July 20, I'll use to pick a winner!

Thanks for stopping by on this fun hop. Your next stop is…Suzelle from

A Little Bag to take to the Pool or the Beach

I made this little bag, in Design Studio using the George and Basic Shapes and the Paisley carts, to hold treats for the pool party in our neighborhood. I used my cuttlebug for the embossing and cut the sunglasses from the Paisley cart. Throw in the towel, sunscreen and a good book and you're off for a day of fun in the sun by the pool or at the beach!

Cute Little Picnic Basket

Here's a cute little picnic basket I made using Design Studio and the George and Basic Shapes cart. I plan to fill them with treats for our picnic guests to take home with them. I might use them to deliver invites to a picnic in the future. What would you use them for?

A Patriotic Card for the 4th of July

Here is a patriotic card to celebrate the 4th of July. It's similar to the rocker style card, but using the octagon shape. It is made flat, so it can be mailed and then will stand on it's own when open. The inside is blank and can be used for a personal note or an invitation to a party!

The octagon shape is from the George and Basic Shapes cart, the fireworks are from the Stand and Salute cart and the party girl is from the Rock Princess cart.
