Carta Bella Paper: “Practically Perfect” Carousel Gift Box

After several wintry days here in Utah, I’m ready for the warmth of sunny skies and the scent of blooming flowers! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a cheery, Carousel Gift Box using the beautiful Carta Bella Practically Perfect collection … perfect for chasing the winter blues away!

This gift box makes me feel like I’m walking right down Cherry Tree Lane to an adventure in a chalk-drawn park! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a carousel box cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #49865). I LOVE using the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for projects like this! It’s sturdy, with a beautiful texture that makes your project feel even more opulent!

I used the striped Garden Melody paper to create the roof and topped it with a bright ribbon accented with a paper flower cut with the Flower Set #5 die set. I used a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack, adding more detail to it with a few stickers and a chipboard phrase.

Each panel of the carousel is backed with the darling patterns included in the 6×6 paper pad. I love the variety! I chose one of the panels to serve as the “front” of the box and added a bit more decorating to the lower left corner with one of the Chipboard Phrases. Fussy cut flowers and solid blue die cut greenery (Spring Greenery Die Set) add texture.

Finish the box with sparkly gems on the scalloped edge of the roof and the center of each star and you have a special gift box ready to be filled with a treat or two! Enjoy!
