Botanique Bag.

The challenge this week from Cricutters Anonymous is to make a gift for someone in the family.  I chose to make a gift box for my mom for Mother's Day.  I used the new Botanique papers and stickers from American Crafts. This incorporates the Raise the Bar Challenge - spring; the Oh Alice challenge - flowers and the OCC challenge - bows.  I also stamped the background paper with the Unity Music background.  The lace is from May Arts, pearls CTMH and ribbon from my stash.  I used some Martha Stewart punches for the Butterflies.  To cut my box I used my Tags, Boxes and More cartridge, which was the first cartridge I ever purchased for my Cricut (several years ago) and I have to admit I think I have only used it once.
