Creation Station Put a Ring on It

It's the first Sunday of the month and that means is Creation Station Blog Hop time!  This month our theme is "Put a Ring On It" which translate to whatever we want or belly bands for cards, boxes, bags, or whatever suits our creative process.

When I design packaging I always construct it to be easily accessible and easy to rewrap.  With that said, I make lots of custom belly bands to slide on and off boxes.  This one is a band that includes a handle to resemble a min gift bag or tote.

I started with a 2" x 10.5" strip of Real Red Cardstock.  I stamped it with the Buffalo Check background stamp and Basic Black Ink.  Then I punched each end with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and then a 1.25" Circle Punch.

Next, I wrapped the strip around a Pillow Box and glued the ends to make the handle.  My favorite part is adding all the decor.  For this box I tied three ribbons and then added a clean and simple deer tag.  Dies for the tag include the Snow Globe set and Layering Circles.  A layer of Ice Glitter finishes the tag for a perfect touch.

With a happy heart I say thanks for being a part of our hop this month.  Coming to you next is the uber-adorable ultra-talented Mikaela Titheridge.  She will most surely knock your socks off!
