About Town Tote / Box

Lauren Meader introduced two new Timeless Templates for October and this one was really intriguing. It's big! Over 8" tall and 7.5" wide at the top. Could hold a really nice size gift. The tag is hiding the oval handles cut in the top. I took an extra picture so you could see the top of the tote with the handle if you wanted to put your ribbon in a different arrangement. I used some older Christmas DP and SU Red Riding Hood Red and Olive Green for the card stock. I used the Poinsettia Nestabilities to cut several layers for the flower and edged the petals with gold Stickles. The center of the flower is the Sizzix Sparkle die cut. The sentiment on the tag is from Holiday Best. The Nestabilities Label Nine dies were used for the tag and the ribbon is also SU Red Riding Hood Red.I used Old Olive and Red Riding Hood ink. This is a really nice size and easy to put together template. Check out Lauren's Timeless Templates at the PTI store. Have a good weekend!

So pretty and so clever too. You can't beat that combination! I adore Christmas and am working on a journal for my own Christmas present. Your tote is gorgeous and now I have to go check out her templates.
Thank you for the clever idea.
