Hello Kitty Challenge #5 with Scrapbookaholic by Abby

Today Abby from Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #5 is for us to make a bag or box using "Hello Kitty". All you need to do is link your project to InLinkz over at Scrapbookaholic by Abby Blog to be entered in to win a fabulous "Hello Kitty" Watch. If you are like I am and didn't have any "Hello Kitty" images but Celeste from Touched By a Butterfly has a SGV file that I am sure she would share or you can go to Squidoo's Hello Kitty Coloring and Printables like I did to find some fabulous images.

For my project I made a cupcake box using the image that I got from Squidoos Hello Kitty Coloring and Printables.

To make your box, take a piece of red card stock and your scoreboard, score at the 4" and 8" marks, turn your page and score the opposite side at the same marks. Fold the corners to form triangles and glue to the inside of the box, I used paper clips to hold my sides together since I use Quick Dry Glue.

I printed my images twice on my printer so I could color the Hello Kitty and be able to layer it. I just love using Pop Dots to give my projects that added dimension.

I colored Hello Kitty image with Copic Markers G14,R24,R29,Y15,Y19 and R82, after it was colored I fussy cut it out and using my Shabby Shutters and Wild Honey Distress Ink I distressed the edges. On the roses I did Glossy Accent on each of them and allowed them to dry. I added a small ribbon to ballerina dress after I got it on the cupcake box.

I made a belly band to go around my box, ink the sides of it and did some line work using my Brown Le Pen. I also fussy cut some of the flowers from a sheet of Echo Park Record 6" x 6" Paper Pack. I again placed some on pop dots and added some gemstones to a few of the center flowers. The border you are seeing is from my lid, I used the EK Abstract Flower Punch on it.

Here is the lid, it is a piece of 8"x8" red card stock that I scored with my scoreboard at the 2" mark on all 4 sides. I did my scallop punch before I folded in the triangles on all four corners to shape my lid. The paper on top is a 4" and a 2 1/4" square from the Echo Park Record Paper Pack, ink with chestnut roan and I did line work using Brown Le Pen. My tag is a piece of green cardstock that is 2" x 4" folded in half, punched with the EK Abstract Punch and on the inside I placed a small piece of the red card stock, I colored in a couple of the flowers with my Copic Markers and the fussy cut the Hello Kitty and place it on my gift tag.
