Hello my crafty friends!  This is Kimberly from My Craft Spot and I have a  gift box to share with you from the Art  Philosophy cartridge.  I love this cartridge!!

I cut this fun box at 6 1/4 inches from the Art Philosophy cartridge. 

The giant buttons are from Fancy Pants.  The stamped sentiments are from my Butterfly Kisses and Tiny Tags stamp sets.  I embossed the white background with a Cuttlebug folder and then used my edge distresser to rough up the edges of the background and then around each of the sentiments. 

I cut the small white circles at 0.85" (real dial size) from the George cartridge.  After stamping the sentiments, I attached them to the buttons with adhesive. 

I ran a line of quick drying liquid glue around each button and added Bakers Twine (Maraschino, Caribbean, and Lemon Drop) for a fun twist.  I also laced Bakers Twine (Green Apple) around the handle of the box.  

I used the Martha Stewart fringe scissors to make the grass along the bottom of the gift box.
