No Fooling Buttons ans Bows

***Welcome  I have a couple posts today so please take a moment to check them all out***

Are you ready for another fun challenge today?Over at Really Reasonable ribbon we are having a Button and Bows challenge-you know you can do this one-don't forget the ribbon!
 Create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it. Just be sure to follow the theme above and use ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project. 

Here's what you need to do:
* Create a new project using the posted theme. A layout, card, ATC, home decor item, hair bow, or anything your can think of.
* You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide newly designed projects. No back-linking please.
* All projects must also include some sort of ribbon/lace/trim.
* Post your project on your blog or an online gallery (using code RRR) and link it at REALLY REASONABLE RIBBON  with the Inlinkz tool . Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
* You have until April 13th at 11:59 PM Eastern time to enter your projects.

Do you remember me sharing one of these cute little boxes before? I think I am addicted to them! lol
I knew this would be a perfect idea for a project with Button and bows!
I used one of my favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon   Gingham Black Micro. Gingham is one of my favorite to use. I am sure I have every color and width!
This is what the box looks like closed up! Isn't that bow adorable on the top? I used Core paper for all the layers and that stamp is from Purple Cows, Stamp It set.

Here is a couple more views with the colors of red, black, pink and white. I used the ribbon on the inside to keep the box together. Just punched some holes and added eyelets so the ribbon would thread through the holes nicely.

I just used a sentiment from my stash to add to the top so it can be used as a gift maybe. The bottom has some beads for feet.
See how fun this challenge is this time! I bet you can come up with something using button and bows.
