Ivy Lane meets Kraft container

Every month I design layouts and cards for my club members but this time I wanted to try something different.  Along with two fun cards my card-makers are creating this fun kraft container in February (or March depending on which club they are in)

Products used:
Kraft container
Ivy Lane Paper
Artiste Cricut cartridge (for banner)
Oodles of Doodles Stamp set
Stamp pads:  Chocolate and Smokey Plum
Holiday Tags stamp set

Sizes:  I measured the sides of the container to get the measurements I needed for the green piece and strip around the lid.  The strip at the bottom was the zip strip from the top of one of the papers in the pack (the zip strip has the item number, name and colors on one side and a pretty design on the other so when you cut it off you can still use it!  )  The circle on the top of the lid is 2 3/4 inches.  The stamp set tells you to cut the banner at 1" on your cricut.  (don't have Artiste- just stamp and trim around the image)  I inked the doodle stamp in Chocolate, stamped off on a scrap and then onto the banner piece.  This made the doodle lighter so the words showed up better. 
This cute container could be used to package candy, gift cards, etc... OR change the wording on the banner to make a mini money bank, trinket holder etc!
Hope you enjoyed my little peek into one of this month's projects!  If you like any of the items you see- simply click a link above or visit www.tracigodbee.ctmh.com .  This month is my 9 year anniversary and I'm mailing free gifts next week to everyone that ordered from my site this month!
