Mother's Day Hand Sanitizer or Lotion Box

Although these little boxes can be made 
for any occasion, I thought they were 
especially cute for Mother's Day!
I came across a tutorial and instead 
of reinventing the wheel, 
here's a link to the tutorial.

And here are a couple of pics to show how easy it is to put this little box together!

Then add your decorative paper around the box.

And embellish to your taste, 
I stamped a flower and cut it 
out with a circle punch 
 and then backed it with 
coordinating card stock also 
circle punched. 
I used a 1", 1 1/2" & 1 3/8" circle punch. 
Tie a pretty ribbon and voila!

Imagine, Improvise & Invent
