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!

Kate, your project is so fun and completely fantastic! I can just imagine a little kiddo's face lighting up with this... not to mention every adult's. :o) This cut file is amazing and I love the touches you gave it. The embossed mane is perfection and I just LOVE his heart! :o) Your projects always make me happy, my dear friend. (And thank you for all of the sweet words last night! You are such a blessing!) Have a sunshiny day!
