My Other Creations: Gift Boxes using Inky Antics' Wonder Girl Stamps (Designed by Andrea Ockey Parr)

We're midway through the STAMPtember celebrations at Simon Says Stamp and what a great month it's been so far!  And we're keeping the party going with this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme which is, "It's a Wrap" (packaging of some sort).  I decided to make some gift boxes using some of the stamps I drew which are now produced by Inky Antics.

To make the individual components of these box bands, I cut some patterned paper for the background and some scalloped pieces out of some collage paper I'd made for an earlier project.  The scalloped edge was cut with a die from Pink and Main.  Next I stamped the girls, colored them with alcohol ink markers and cut dresses for them out of more scrap paper.

All that was left was the assembly step!  I layered all the elements and glued them down just to the box lids (so the lids could still be easily removed).

I wanted some more dimension, so I added Tim Holtz paper bouquet flowers.  I colored them with Distress Ink that I'd watered down and dripped onto the flower petals.  I also added some string and tags from Mama Elephant to finish these off.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
