Lion Treat Box
This week's My Craft Spot challenge is "Anything Goes"! Feel free to create the project of your choice to enter for a chance to win this week's prize.
For my project, I used a Lettering Delights' file: Animal Boxes and Bags. I purchased this set for the cat (come back tomorrow to view!) but love all the animals. For this week's challenge, I decided to give the lion a go - simply because of his fabulous mane! This was run through my Cuttlebug to give it a full look of fur!
This box was incredibly easy to put together - although I did make some adjustments once everything was cut out. I actually cut off the top of the base in order to adhere it to the front as I wanted the head to be part of the opening flap. I thought it would be more fun that way.
I used My Craft Spot's Lacy Banners metal dies for the little crest at the bottom. I thought the edges worked so wonderfully well with the mane. Inside the crest, I added a little heart cut with My Craft Spot's Small Alphabet metal dies. (There are a number of sweet shapes in this set too!)
Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created - and then be sure to link up your own "Anything Goes" project!
