JustRite Friday Challenge #111: It's in the Bag

JustRite is challenging us to create a bag (or any sort of gift packaging item) for their last challenge of 2013. I decided to re-purpose a gift box from the mall in shimmery white & gold as I happened to have those papers in my stash.

Simply using some of the box's existing design, I cut gold paper with JustRite's Custom Vintage Labels Four die, added white pearl trim and tied sheer ribbon around the lid before gluing down my die cut.
Atop that I stamped the elaborate frame from Birthday Vintage Labels Four stamp set in Encore Gold Metallic ink on white shimmer paper, added my sentiment from the same set in Memento black ink and die cut with another Labels Four die, centering that vertically over my larger piece.
I tied my two ribbons in bows at the left of center, added white shimmer paper roses (Spellbinders' Bitty Blossoms) edged in Antique Linen Distress Ink and a pearl-adorned gold butterfly (Spellbinders' Les Papillions) to finish off the box top. For the front-closing magnetic edge piece, I paired two Spellbinders' Classic Edge dies and added more pearls.
I think my additions make an already pretty box even more elegant for a lovely lady's special occasion, perhaps a birthday or even a wedding or shower! A fun challenge indeed!
