Well, hello all my wonderful family and friends!!!  I hope everyone is as happy as I am today!!!

As you have probably guessed, my hubby went to Indianapolis alone.  So, Buster and I are home!

To begin my quiet weekend, you all know how much I love boxes and I realized I hadn't did one in quite some time, so I sat down this morning and decided to do somthing simple and easy; but, at least, kind of cute -- just to satisfy my whim.  Here's the "lil" gift box I came up with:

It's not an original, I'veseen them all over but I just wanted to design a box in DS and this was it -- quick and easy!  This box is great for a small gift, a favorite candy(ies), votive candles, a pretty scarf, etc.  I even have a "lil" gift card tied and tucked on the back:

Now it's all ready to fill and go!!!

Below is the cute.file if you'd like to have it.  For future reference, I'' be posting this one on my sidebar too under "Cut.files" category -- eventually!!!  I'll let you know.

In the meantime, if you use the cut.file, please link your project to my blog; I'd love to see what you did with it!  I hope you enjoy it!!!

Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you!

Hey there Audrey,
I wouldn't call this "Just a lil gift box", I would call it fabulous. It is really pretty.
Enjoy your weekend with Buster

Very elegant, the paper you used is beautiful. You are always so sweet to share with us. I have a wedding to go to tomorrow, wonder if I would have time to make one? Thanks for sharing, if I do make one, I will definitely link you to my blog. I don't have any fancy paper. :-( I am so happy you were able to stay home with Buster and play in your scrap room hugs
