Fancy Bag/Box

Here is my second entry into  The Hybrid Chick - Card Caravan Challenge #2 - Buttons.  I hope it's acceptable, because it's a box, not a card.  Once again I used the dp designs from 'Going to Grandmas' and printed onto cardstock before cutting out my box on the Silhouette.  The box is a digi download from The Hybrid Chick.
I embellished my box with some of the beautiful gingham ruffle from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  I stitched it into a circle, and because the ribbon has an elesticated top edge, I made it so that it would stretch and slide on and off the box flap to hold it shut.  I then threaded brown satin ribbon and button twine through my button holes, and stitched it to the ribbon closure.

Thank you for stopping by xx

Well girl; you have been busy! :)
Your box is a lovely take on the challenge and it turned out a precious keepsake. The dp is elegant and I love the addition of ruffled ribbon topped with a bow.
Wow!
