Red, White, and Blue

The new theme for the 
Cut It Up challenge is Red, White, and Blue!  Create any type of project, but don't forget your die cuts!!    

This adorable little patriotic box/bag from Cutting Cafe is perfect to house some candies for the 4th of July!  It was cut from the Star Box template that comes with star cuts, a frame, the star border, and the box cut. There are also 7 tags with sentiments and 7 sentiments only included in the set.

I went with a very traditional red, white and blue for my bag.  I cut the box, border in red, tag (print and cut), red tag, and blue stars.  Next, I did a quick Copic color on the tag.  I adhered the star border and stars.  I thought adding some sparkle tape to the handle would add some fun before assembling the box.  

To finish it up, I added a piece of scrap blue on the inside to cover the star cut in the box and I added the ribbon and tag!
