Parisian Inspired Box and Tags

Hi Everyone! It's Lisa here and today I am sharing with you an altered "Laughing Cow" cheese box. I know what you are thinking! Oh no! Another box is that all she does? LOL 

I have always loved boxes and little treasures to put inside them. Laughing Cow cheese boxes are one of my favorite things to alter. You can bet I save them up when I buy this cheese. 
I used some Glitz papers in a toile pattern and distress the edges. I used the Eiffle Tower die from the Vintage Collection. I cut it two times and folded the base up for a 3-D effect. 

I also used the Ornate Circle Frame in the background. I happened to have a set of french inspired stamps and used them on the gold color paper and cut them out to make my own embellishments. Of course a cheese box wouldn't be complete without a little cheescloth tucked in there. ;)

I finished off the inside of the box with the same toile paper. I then included two little tags. I cut them out of coordinating paper using the Magnolia Doily die. 
I stamped on the tags once again using a stamp from the "french" inspired collection I have. Then I added the Perfume Bottle Mini to one and the Clutch Mini to the other.  Both of the die cuts were inked slightly with distress ink for a little shading.
I finished off the back of the box with another stamp from the set and the little bow that was part of the Ornate Circle Frame set. 

I promise on my next post it won't be a box. **grin**
Here is quick peek at the dies I used because you need to get some for yourself!
