Pink Ribbon........

I'm back to show you this pretty Pink Ribbon Box that I made last week . The kids school canteen is having a rafflle to raise money for Breast cancer. I added this box to a huge hamper of donated products . I fill it with lots of Pink wrapped caramels.

I have to tell you.......I was really pushed for time creating this project, I was rushing .........everything that could go wrong did! So all the decorating came about to cover up mistakes that I had made! 
A few of the mistakes were.......I embossed the bottom of the box and had planned on doing around the edges of the late it was stuck together. So that's how the pretty crepe paper frill came about! Next mistake.....I turned the lid over to press the decorative paper down, omg.... right on top of some hot pink ink. Out came a Big flower to cover that mess up ..... that's where my flower spray started. There was a couple more things too. Funny thing is sometimes I think these mistakes are meant to be.........I love how it turned out - a little different from what I originally imagined, better I think!!!
Has that ever happened to you?

You can purchase the template for this box at  "My Time Made Easy"

Its my husbands Birthday tomorrow..........I must get his card made! I don't think he would be too expressed if I purchased one, since I have so much paper hanging around!

Happy Crafting
