Day 3 at Holiday Chaos - Anything But a Card

      It's Day 3 at Catch the Bug's Holiday Chaos and we are doing "Anything But a Card."  These are usually the themes I dislike because until recently, I had no good way to make either a box or a bag so I ended up doing gift card holders and that got boring after I had run through my standard 3 styles of them.  But now I have a new, much larger, Scor-Pal and I can make boxes or bags of any size as long as my card stock/paper is large enough.  This box is 4.5 x 5.5 x 2 inches and my paper size was 9.5 inches square at the start.  I trimmed that on the 4.5 inch side after scoring all the lines.  

     I also did a 3" x 5" x 7" tall bag using white butcher paper (great because it comes on a large roll and you can make bags of nearly any size or height!) and decorated it with this same Bugaboo Stamps image and ribbon.  Unfortunately, I used it for my neighbor's gift before I photographed it so you only get to see the box, not the bag.
