Remember my closing Scalloped Tag Topper Box?

If you read my other blog, you'll remember my closing Scalloped Tag Topper Box.  I shared the template and step-by-step instructions with anyone who wished to try one on the condition that they would not sell the instructions or take credit for the design themselves.  Well, it's time for me to have some fun with that box again.  This time I'm going to enter a Thanksgiving box into two challenges.

I'm not going to go into details for the box again.  I've posted everything and provided clear photo instructions here if you're interested.  This post is about the same box but making it different.

I began with a box cut from Naturals White.  I wanted something light but neutral for my base.  For my next layer I added Cajun Craze, which worked perfectly with the retired Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper that I had chosen to use.  I love all the bright colours in that paper and picked the apple pattern for two sides of my box and the corn pattern for the other two sides.  For the handles, I chose the stitched pattern which pulled all the colours together.

I added some leaves cut with the Fun Fall Framelits and pieces of Cajun Craze, Hello Honey and Pear Pizzazz to a banner on which I had stamped my sentiment from the retired Day of Gratitude stamp set.  A piece of Hello Honey ribbon and a retired Designer Naturals button finished it off.
