Good morning friends; it's ABC Monday at Catch the Bug! Graduation is just around the corner, so I have some gift packaging for my "Anything But a Card" project today. I purchase these handy gable boxes at Hobby Lobby when they are 50% off; they're nice to have on hand and easy to decorate. They give your gift a little extra oomph!

I've colored the image with pencils, layered it with a die cut and popped it up with foam tape over a simple band. I've added a touch of glitter to the stars and diploma and a die cut glittery star and heart for embellishing. Here's a close-up:

Image: Bugaboo Digital Image (not yet in store)
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, PTI CS, The Paper Studio Patterned Paper, The Paper Studio Glitter Paper (black), Doodlebug Sugar Coated CS (pink)
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Lil' Inker Designs Dies (heart, star), Foam Tape

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations here...they are sure to inspire you!
