Ribbon Box

I made this box for the demonstrator choice at the training event we did last week, it holds 9 1/2" or 5/8" ribbon reels, I made it from the bottom of a large cereal box.
I used pretty in pink and whisper white card, dsp from tea & crumpets, pretty in pink, close to cocoa, chocolte chip and versamark inks (the colours were used on the top wish I'd got a photo of that but I forgot), clear embossing powder, corner rounder punch, Chocolate chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. The stamp's used were Vintage vogue and schoolbook serif alphabet, I also used the very vintage jumbo wheel all product used were Stampin' Up! I let them keep it for their displays :( so now I need to make a new one for my ribbons =D
What surprised me was that I won a prize for it some of the other demonstrators had made some amazing projects like this box by my amazing upline Abi.

This weeks challenge is the theme chocolate, So here's my project it's my cat's chocolate & nugget (the kids named them), click here to see the design teams creations.
I tried to get a close up so you could see how great the shimmer paint and the crystal effects look but they never look as good in photo's.
For these pages I used creamy caramel, and handsome hunter card (faux suede technique for handsome hunter), the paws prints were cut from either kraft or sahara sand card can't remember which using 1 3/8" & 1/2" circle punches, then sponged with champagne mist shimmer paint, I coloured chip board letters with chocolate chip ink the topped with crystal effects.
The stamp set used was schoolbook serif alphabet.
