Just Cute Bears - Anything, but Square...

This week's Just Cute Bears Challenge is an interesting one...we'd like you to make:

'Anything, but square...and include a tag'

Hmmmm...it certainly had me scratching my head! lol 

In the end, I decided to make a little Christmas gift box...it's a pryamid shape...and just perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree. I used this freebie template from Pink Petticoat, printed on to the reverse of a piece of paper from the My Mind's Eye 'Signature Christmas - Festive' collection. After cutting out the template, I punched a hole in each of the 'points', and threaded some ribbon through to close the box. For my tag, I've used a cute little Penny Black bear called 'Candle-lit Night', which I've watercoloured, then cut out with my Nesties.


Here's a view of the back...it gives you a better idea of the shape:


I'm also going to enter this into a few other Challenges:
For more inspiration...check out the fabulous makes by the Just Cute Bears design team, and our guest designer for August, Vicky.

    This is fabulous - not an easy challenge, as we are so used to making square cards! Love the rich colours and the Nestie die cut - perfect colouring of the image too.
