I am completely in love with the High Tide Designer Series Paper!!!

I'm also super in love with belly bands on gift boxes.

This belly band has some small details that make a big difference.  For instance, the scallop top on the blue paper...  This is the negative image from the Large Scallop Edgelit.  It's PERFECT!  I also made sure the placement of the fish was perfect.  A bit much?  Nah.

Also, I stamped and cut out the little flag from the "hello, sailor" stamp because it needed a pop of color.

I really love how this box turned out.

I also thought a simple little card was in order.

There's nothing crazy or difficult about this card.  Maybe that's why I like it so much?  I just distressed the edges with a bone folder and squished and crumpled the edges where I felt it needed some love.

To get your rhinestone blue, simply color the entire rhinestone with a Sharpe.
