Hang In There ~ Going Nuts ~ Gift Set 3 part 2

Hello ladies, thank you for visiting me today. Gosh a busy week is over.. i have in the morning 8am a little friend of Lucas here now to watch till afternoon. Definitely those little ones keep me moving :-)
For my gift set today i was inspired by that cute little Magnolia monkey. i thought how cute he would be to give a "silly" gift idea.. kind of like some movie tickets and the nuts to go with it. You know.. just something out of the ordinary.

What i have done is to open the clear acetate pillow box (once i designed for store that sold ribbons and that's where got sent in) and layed it flat onto my designer paper. I traced with a pencil the rounding, carefully cutting it out - lay it inside - close and eventually trim some more. The paper is double sided so one side shows the polka dot paper and than the "half" side the orange "botanical" side. The piece of scrap that i have created was used to decorate the matching tag.

Stamps: Magnolia - Pet Collection 2009
Sentiment" Hang in There" & "Monkey"

Paper: all by stampin up
Embellishments: all by Stampin up
