Cottage Cutz Vintage Bath Tub Gift Box

Happy Saturday.  Welcome friends and bloggers to another Cottage Cutz Creation.  Today it's Carol with a Gift Box.  This was created with a plain old corrugated cardboard box.  You can do anything with a few pieces of scrapbook paper, lace, and embellishments.  Warning:  This post is picture heavy!
The Vintage Bath Tub die from Cottage Cutz was use for the focal point.  It was mounted on a few spellbinders dies.  The corners of the box are the Bella Spring Corner.  The Bella Leafy Branch was used under the flowers.
The box was covered on all sides with paper.  The bottom has a Martha Stewart Deep punched border trim.  When covering your box, don't worry about covering those corrugated edges.  You can paint them with paint or gesso like I did and you just get a Shabby Chic look to your project.
Lace was glued around the top edge of the box along with some crochet trim and a row of bling.  The bow was created with sheer ribbon with pieces of lace inserted between the layers for fullness.
Cut the Vintage Bath Tub die with white cardstock and use your Copic markers to shade the pieces and assemble.  It doesn't show well in the picture but I painted the pieces and the flowers on this box with Twinkle Toes Glimmer Glam.
The flowers were created with two different size Marvey Punches.  Pink bling was inserted between the flowers to compliment the pink in the main focal point.  K & Company Elegance Designer Paper was used to cover the box and create the flowers.
 So by now I bet you are wondering what you would use this box for, right?  Well here is what you could include in the box as a wonderful gift to someone!
A collection of Bath and Body Works products!  How fun is that.  I used the Eyelet Insert Card/Tag to decorate the bottles.  I just turned it upside down so the pretty decoration was at the bottom and punched a hole at the top to tie onto the bottles.  I repeated the decorations of flowers, the Bella Leafy Branch, and some pink bling.

As you can see, this would be a wonderful gift presentation-so don't throw out any of those corrugated boxes that you might think aren't pretty enough to alter.....they are.
 Here's a little peek at the individual Bath and Body Works bottles.
Here are the Cottage Cutz dies used.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a creative day wonderful day!  Take care and see you soon!
