What's inside the box?

Let's take a peek inside...
Hey all you House Mouse Lovers!!
It's Monday Morning.....and you know what that means...

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #31 - Bags & Boxes
Make your own bag or box or make something out of a bag or box. Decorate your project however you like...but make sure to include at least 1 HM or Friends image. We also have a sponsor this week...and that means a prize!! OH YEAH BABY! For all the challenge details and to see creations by the Design Team - click HERE.

I created this box out of a printed template from this weeks sponsor - The Cutting Cafe.



The House Mouse stamp I used is Jumpin' for Joy. Doesn't Monica look happy!! :)

Below the ribbon that is around the lid I put little dots of glitter. Actually...there's lots of wonderful sparkle all over this thing! And see that white ribbon tied over on the right side...



...there's a little glittered tab hidden behind it. When you pull that out...


...you get a little note card...



...perfect to write something special in there. How FUN is THAT!!!



Now lets look inside...



...a nice little surprise!!



That's not all...turn over the bottom...and I put little Dew Drops on there for feet. Also...MORE GLITTER!!



And you thought it was just gonna be some boring little box didn't ya? LOL

Because of all the different things I did to make this...I'm not EVEN gonna try to list all the products and links. I'll just give ya the main stuff. Hope you have time this week to make a special little box or bag :)

So so clever. And, a darling little note card tucked in too. You put a lot of thought into this one -- and indeed "It is a Good Thing" -- Martha Kay, aka theneon
