It's a Metallic Ribbon Inspiration Saturday! Stamp Simply Style!

Good Morning, welcome to another ribbon inspiration Saturday, brought to you by The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store! We are challenging ourselves to use that metallic ribbon! It can also be any type of metallic feature, as in rhinestones! Even wired edge ribbon! Gold and silver string! I think you get the picture! Well, I took the metal concept to the max! My daughter had a jewelry party recently, and of course Mom was the best customer! I could not throw out the silver boxes that the jewelry arrived in! So here we are repurposing!
I start with my mirrored paper. I die cut using Spellbinders Blossoms Three dies for the box top flower. I proceeded to Cuttlebug emboss the blossoms with Kassies Brocade, folding at every petal creating a peak and valley around the blossom. I attached each size blossom with a foam dimensional stacking to the top. Blue edged silver ribbon, rhinestones, and silver sheer ribbon add to the box top decor. I placed a silver mirrored paper insert to raise my presentation of money! This box could certainly hold a gift card as well as a special handwritten note. The paper is cut with an exacto knife to accommodate the ribbon running under and up to tie on the right hand side. My sentiment from JustRite's Charming Christmas fit perfectly on the smallest die cut. Not bad for a repurposed box, I have three smaller silver boxes to go!
This is a Mystery Blog Candy, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs! Be sure to leave a comment on each blog to increase your chances of winning all this metallic ribbons, trims, and rhinestones!!! The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, September 20 & will be posted on SHARON'S BLOG on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, so please check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!
