Cuttlebug Spot Challenge - Box & Gift

We have a brand new challenge starting today over at the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge...the theme is:

'Make a box & put something handmade inside'

I made a very simple set of little notecards (they're just under 4 inches square)...with a box of the same design. I used scraps of My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' papers...cutting circles using Nesties, then embossing them with an assortment of Cuttlebug & Craft Concepts folders...sanding over the top to reveal some of the white core. I added a sentiment stamped using a satmp from the CCSR set by Papermania.

Here are all the little notecards (click the photo for a better view):

I'm also entering these into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please stop by the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.
