This was my first lunch box. I gave it to a friend for her birthday with a small matching notebook and some other little stamping items. I like how it turned out, but I'll do things a little differently the next time. To get some texture on the letters, I inked in cameo, kissed off onto canvas, then rolled the edges in cocoa. And I didn't have any primas to match the paper so I used my pastels and a dauber to match the coral.

CUTE!!!! I just made another tin that said stuff cause I already had one with my name and one with cards. But mine isn't near this nice (dang....and I have that BG paper too!). This is so so cute...I would never give it away!

This is absolutely beautiful. All the colors are so rich, and your workmanship (ooops...workwomanship) is perfect! I love that your ribbon and paper are so neatly trimmed around the latch. (What's your trick for making the ribbon stick so well in that area especially?) Thanks for the inspiration!!
