Creative Inspirations Guest DT with Sugar Nellie Manga kid.

Happy HUMP day everyone.......

The challenge this week is a gift in a box or a bag of some sort. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do and I just happened to be in the bath and put in my relaxing bath salts and it came to me. A cute little box with some bath crystals in it!! Now to figure out just how to do it. This was some tall thinking to get this to work. But I think I did a great job at showing off the bath crystals and with a pretty gift box. I used my nesties to cut the window and put in a piece of acetate for a window. I have been organizing my scrap room and I found these metal rimmed tags that we all used years ago. ( Do you remember them?) I figured that it was perfect for the face of the very sweet SUGAR NELLIE Manga kid. I cut her out to fit the circle of the tag and if you look close her cute little piggy tails are hanging over the rim. I then put the instructions on the back of the tag. (see photo) The final step was to put all the pretty details on it and the bath salts inside. I have used Prima flowers and a tiny bit of ribbon, half pearls and I punched a few fern leaves with my Mc Gill punch. I added a big bow with a piece of green tulle. I put the bath salts in a small snack size baggie and dropped them inside. Tied up the tulle added the flower and the tag.
I really like the way it turned out.
I hope that I have insipired you to jump over to Creative Inspirations and entry this week.

Closer look of the window and the bath crystals.

Notice the little flap that tucks into the cute little box to keep the box closed.
