Out Of The Box - Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #84 - Animals

Isn't this image so cute? I think it is so appropriate for this weeks Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenges animal themed challenge. This image actually comes in a Christmas Assortment stamp set of 5 stamps and just for 3$, so what are you still waiting for? And don't forget about November special and donations to Pet Pardons - see my Be Besides post for more info and ads on my sidebars!
I suppose you can't see that on first image, but that little box is somewhat in 3D. Here's how: print two images and color one as basic for 3D effect and other one as parts to be raised above. Add some side flaps to the box.
Cut all different parts out.
Crease both sides and middle of box and fold flops backwards, Fold middle slightly upwards.
Adhere your box (by flops) to the back image, aligning right side. Cut off the leftover from left side.
Adhere all other details, using thick sticky foam. I also shaped ribbon so it would look more curled.
This little metal label holder looked so nice here and I tucked Just For You sentiment in it.
This is how the box looks from the side - still not sure if you can see the 3D effect.... but in real life it looks very lovely.

Hope this was fun,
